Before I write this review I must state that I have a number of acquaintances who have given me rave reviews over the past week, this being the reason I tried it for myself.
On entering I was pleased to see proper table clothes and cotton napkins, always a good sign.The table decoration was pleasing with a bowl of false flowers to take the drabness off of an otherwise quite dreary décor .The tables and chairs being a bit clumpy and not very attractive looking. The whole place badly needs a needs a freshen up.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and produced a menu within a few minutes of sitting at a table.
The menu is extensive, providing a whole range of Egyptian, English and International choices. Possibly too extensive for a restaurant of that size.
I chose the home made tomato soup which was passable, if not exactly unforgettable. Followed by fish and chips, as it had been recommended to me. The first disappointment was the absence of tartar sauce, which was not provided. No excuse for that as it is so easy to make.
The batter round the fish, although being advertised as crispy beer batter was soggy and soft, and quite unpleasant. The chips had the sort of nasty taste that comes from frying in none to clean oil. The meal was well below standard, and to cap it all I was served coffee in a mug.I didn't investigate any further with regard to lavatory facilities as I know I wont be going back. I cannot recommend this restaurant, particularly as it is also tucked away in a dusty backstreet and quite difficult to find.
