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!

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

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I served you. It is unfortunate that we could not have replaced your meal when I checked on you.
