“Best Local Grills in Aswan”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

I had dinner at "Al Masry" restaurant during my business visit to Aswan. The restaurant has very basic setting yet very clean, it serves authentic Egyptian grills that are both tasty and clean.I recommend meat over chicken and pigeons.I had lamp shops and shish Kebab "kofta"; they were both tasty and grilled to perfection.Al Masry also seves nice local salads and bread [ask the waiter to grill some bread for you!!]. I paid less than 20 $ for my dinner. I will definetly go back to this restaurant when I am back to Aswan.

“Delicious tomato salad/ grilled chicken”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

Suffice to say this is the place for those who like to try Egyptian cuisine at its best. Good set menu, prompt service, reasonably priced (for 4 we paid LE234). Impressive salad/ dip selection prior to main course. We loved especially delicious tomato/onion salad as it had a full flavor of sunny blessed rip tomatoes (something which reminded us of our childhood time and the food from the past). This is a place worth to remember whilst in Aswan.

“Tasty and well served”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Al Masry is a good restaurant located near to the Corniche and the souk. There you can find local food, as Egyptian people would like, not something only for tourists. Good value for money. Friendly waiters.

“Great value”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

We all loved this restaurant which is in a back street behind the souk and ate here every night of our stay in Aswan (boring but true!).
When you order they bring you various dips, salads and side dishes as a matter of course and chips for the kids.
Fantastic value and very tasty. Superfriendly waiters. And they even have a vegetarian option!

“Great food, great value”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Al Masry is not the easiest place to find, it's just about 50 yards east of the Souk Street, up the road crossing the centre of the souk from the Corniche.
The food is great and the service is good too. Great value food and really high quality. It's good to get off the high tourist track and relax into more of the real Egypt - good food is the best way to do it.
