There aren't a lot of restaurants in Aswan but this is a hidden gem recommended to us by our guide. The lentil soup is delicious and they offer beef, chicken, fish and lamb. The vegetarian option is basically salad with the usual hummus and tahini.

We found this restaurant in the lonely planet Egypt book and it would be a shame for people to miss out on it, because it isn't listed on tripadvisor.
