I ate at Taste of Egypt recently with a friend of mine. The food was quite decent, with a good and varied menu. The ingredients used are very fresh and tasty. Especially delicious was the Arayes, and I enjoyed the Tabouleh salad. The lamb kebab was tasty but had a little too much salt for my liking. I found the... More

Went to this restaurant during the Chop Chop week in February 2015. We were served lamb and even though this is not one of my favourite dishes, it was simply outstanding. If lamb tasted like this every time, I would have this several times a week. They certainly did a great job on the entrée. The appetizer and desert were... More

I would eat here everyday if I could. It has the freshest food. The salad is the best I have ever had at a restaurant. Love the garlic sauce. Last week I tried the buffet for the first time and I was very impressed! The food and dessert was awesome.

Delicious goodness. I visited during the lunch buffet, which was a great way to try a selection of dishes. Everything was superb, and the service was fantastic. Definitely going back for more!

Great value. Great food. Great service. My wife, daughter and I dropped in for dinner on a Wednesday. We were quickly greeted by the very friendly Paula and given a table. Paula took care to ensure we understood the menu... Orders: Starter was Baba Ghanouj. We also ordered the Chicken Skewers and rice from the kid's menu for our daughter.... More

My wife loved her meal and I hated mine. It was inedible. I ordered the lamb skewers and they were cooked to death to the point that you couldn't identify it as lamb. For real. Service was terrible. There was one waitress working hard to serve the tables and one lady who just stood behind the counter, occasionally doing 'something'.... More

Paula & Ehab were very kind, the food was very yummy. I had hibiscus tea, it was very good. For my main dish i had moussaka tagine, it was fabulous. I will certainly be back, it was a great experience.

Thank you for the nice review. The Mousaka is really out of this world. Cooking it in the tajiine makes it taste that much better. Pictures have been posted on Tripadvisor for all to see. We look forward to serving you again. More

We decided to stick around after a morning walking around the market and uptown to wait for this restaurant to open for the day. I am glad we did. We decided to choose the buffet for lunch and weren't disappointed. The selection wasn't over whelming but it was all very delicious. The only recommendation is to use filtered water when... More
