A lot of the restaurant owners promise you a lot to eat at their restaurant. We stayed in Dahab 2 weeks and really were amazed by this family owned restaurant. They are so attentive in their service and food! Everything is top quality, fresh and clean. The rooftop seating is perfect. I understand why this is the top rated restaurant by travelers. Very well deserved!

Had a great meal here in lovely restaurant overlooking the sea at Dahab.
Wonderful selection of food and we had so many courses we couldn't finish it all!
Staff were excellent and you can see your food being cooked.
At about £8 for 4 courses you can't go wrong.

My husband and I had a lovely meal early this week in Forsha's Egyptian Kitchen. We have tried quite a few restaurants in Dahab but tried this one due to its high rating on trip advisor. It is not quite as formal as some of the restaurants we have used like Shark or Ali Baba's for example but we absolutely loved this place and it's family atmosphere.
It is a family run restaurant and Saied the father, is the cook and he BBQ's fresh food as per your order. We had the number 3 BBQ mixed grill which cost 115EGP and was a great deal of food for the money, there was even home made by Saied's wife 'mash' with the mixed grill which is rice wrapped in cabbage - gorgeous and very authentic Egyptian! Mixed dips and bread were on the house so a starter is really not necessary. Alongside a complimentary large bottle of mineral water we also had thickshakes, I had a mango one made with mango ice cream and my hubby had a vanilla one. My mango one made with mango ice cream was spectacular. For dessert I had Sahlab an Egyptian favourite of mine which was lovely although I have never had it served with loads of fruit and coconut before - very posh!
The staff are all lovely from Ahmed who waits on the tables and advises on food choices to his wife Christine and a young lad whom I took to be their son perhaps, everyone looks after you and makes you feel at home. I am sorry we didn't try Forsha's earlier on in our holiday but will be sure to go back when we return later in the year. They have a menu I would like to work my way through!
Free Wifi, a lovely roof top terrace, a view to die for (the full moon over the sea!) and comfortable high and low seating make this a perfect choice for a casual or special occasion. I would recommend everyone to try Forsha's!

Dear Makoshr,

Many thanks for your lovely review and fabulous photos. It is great to hear that loved our restaurant and we’re pleased that you enjoyed your meals and drinks. Our aim when we opened Forsha’s was to create a family run restaurant and we’re pleased to hear that you loved the family atmosphere. The young boy who was in the restaurant on the evening that you came in was Adham (aged 8) who is Said’s youngest son and Ahmed’s little brother.

We look forward to seeing you later in the year when you come back to Dahab.

Best Wishes

Dave & I literally fell into Forshas after a long walk into town on a hot day - Ahmed took one look at the state of us - put the fan on & brought cold drinks !! The kindness, warmth & hospitality shown at this restaurant is 2nd to none. We ate there everytime we went into town. The food is fabulous & freshly prepared by Ahmeds' dad - huge portions. The only problem is getting up to leave - I'd love to be sat there now - corner Bedouin table - sea at one side & boardwalk at the other. A huge thank-you to Ahmed, Kirsteen & dad for making our stay so special & memorable xxxx
