Had a really nice family dinner there. The menu is traditional and has a lot of variety. Great quality food and at really, really good prices. Nice ambience, good music and very friendly service (albeit a bit slow at times)

Delicious Egyptian food (succulent duck), with a wonderful variety of fresh pressed fruit drinks. Relaxed atmoshere, eclectic and antique Egyptian furniture, and at the same time very clean and well-run. Unexpectedly lovely toilet washroom which was much appreciated!
