I really enjoyed eating at El Gamal. The food was superb and the people were wonderful. We ate on the patio with our dog, and we met some new visitors from Washington State. Everyone was so nice to us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I was skeptical. I like Middle Eastern food, but so much of it is not well-prepared: dry, overcooked and over-spiced. El Gamal is none of those things: The food was amazing. I sampled some of what my three companions were eating, and it was all...More
