“The only way to try authentic Sudanese food”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

If you really want try an authentic Sudanese dining experience then defiantly try this place out. The design of the place is really something to see, giving you a feeling that you are walking through a village market, with traditional windows and old doors. The place is huge and you can wander the aisles choosing from different stalls. I highly recommend the outdoor seating area by the river. Try to come around sunset to enjoy seeing the sun come down over the Nile, and I guarantee you a serene experience. Although not Sudanese cuisine I highly advise you to try out the Mongolian stall.

“Khartoum at its best”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

After a visit to the Omdurman souq, which in itself is a wonderful experience, you may want to relax over a delicious mint, lime and ginger drink with authentic Arabic food served by friendly staff. Al Housh in Omdurman (just outside Khartoum) on the banks of the Nile is perfect for this. The decor will make you want to click away on your camera. After the meal treat yourself to a cup of coffee or tea made by a local tea lady. The spacious restaurant which never seems crowded, is welcoming and friendly. Children are an integral part of Arabic families, but even noisy children are not disturbing as the restaurant offers enough space to find a quiet corner. Al Housh is one of the few places in Khartoum that does not allow smoking inside the restaurant, but smokers can sit outdoors with a lovely view of the Nile and Khartoum in the distance.

“Alhoush Takes you on a journey”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

So if you like restaurants and food markets at the same time then Alhoush is the place for you.
It has over 20 stalls, shops and food outlet. You can buy your food take it home or watch it been cooked live with a wide variety of option from local Agashi to international dishes but for me nothing beats the Mongolian stand.
Also they have a fresh fish market.
Never been to a place like this.
And it's the biggest indoor restaurant in Africa seating 500 people also it has an amazing outdoor terrace right on the Nile
