Description: Forsha Said has worked as a BBQ chef for 22 years and his son Forsha Ahmed has worked in restaurants in Dahab for more than 10 years. They always dreamed of having their own restaurant in Dahab, and in February 2014 they opened Forsha's Egyptian Kitchen together with Ahmed's English wife, Kirsteen. Forsha's specialities include BBQ chicken and meat, tagines, fresh fish and seafood. We also offer a range of vegetarian options.

This was our second visit to Dahab so we were determined to explore a bit more and try some new places this time around instead of sticking to what was familiar.

If we have any regrets at all, it is that we didn't eat at Forsha's sooner! The food is simply wonderful and the Staff are so friendly and welcoming. You feel like you've known them for years! They say that "when you eat at Forsha's, you are family" and it's so true. Ahmed and his team went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The roof-top terrace is an absolute treasure and really makes for a lovely evening floating above all the hustle of the street. This place fully deserves to be No.1 restaurant in Dahab!

Good luck to Forsha, Ahmed and the team. We wish you every success and hope to visit you again soon! Steve & Laura x

We ate at Forsha's a couple of nights during our stay, and it was easily our favourite of anywhere we ate. Many of the restaurants along the front look the same and serve the same sort of food, but the family-run nature and service of Forsha's makes it that bit special.
The seating, especially that up on the roof terrace, is superb, and it's a fabulous place to watch the moonrise and the lionfish hunting along the shore by the restaurant lights. The breeze also keeps it wonderfully cool.
The food was just super from start to finish - with your main course you get given freshly-baked pitta bread and dip starters, salad, rice, vegetables, bedouin tea and sometimes ice-cream and lemon drinks if you like. Cost of meals depends a lot on what you want, but as an estimate we spent about 100LE per head for more than we could manage to eat. The cooking was beyond delicious - we ate a lot of fish in Dahab but the calamari and sea bass here was the softest and tastiest. We also had a mixed grill platter - we just said how much we wanted to spend and they made one up for us with all the things we fancied. Recommend this so much, it's bbq'ed in the restaurant (go and have a smell, it's lovely) and was mouth-watering. I think I might be dreaming of those koftas for some time.
Special thanks to Ahmed and Obama who served us each night we were there - you guys were super and made us feel very welcome. When we make it back to Dahab, this will be our first stop!

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.
