I would definitely not go there anymore if I'm after grilled meat/kofta. The prices are high and it's not really worthy. There are so many other places serve grilled meat that would be more recommended.

The place has been renovated since our last visit and definitely improved the environment. The salads plentiful and delicious as was the grilled meat and chicken, service was good too.

Good frilled Egyptian cuisine and the typical sides. Best kofta in town. Pricey but clean food comes with an extra cost. Lively decor, good food but staff seem overworked or underpaid.

The price are about the double of other egyptian restaurant, but it is not worth it. It is just OK, more than 70 LE for half a chicken and rice is too much when you can have the same quality next door for 27 LE.
