Great food from a starter perspective but my husbands veal tagine was under cooked and very salty. My koshari was great and plentiful.

the main issue was the waiter who obviously was either having a bad day or had missed the charm school section of training, very rude and abrupt not only to us but to another member of staff...we were going to stay for a shisha but felt a bit uncomfortable and left early...

The most impressive thing in Abou El Sid Restaurant is the ambiance or atmosphere, it is truly Egyptian even in the taste of the food. It will be a unique experience for foreigners to taste true Egyptian food like what is made in Egyptian houses.
It is not very much expensive, just a little. But worth every pound. The scene from there is extremely beautiful.

Made an error on first visit and we all ordered the same starter amnd got dozens of stuffed vine leaves between us. Choose differing dishes and share off of the lazy susan.
Good standard of food. Like the furniture too.
