Relaxed atmosphere and good value for money.

Relaxed not uptight atmosphere is one of the thing we liked most. We (2 person) ate stakes and desserts, had a bottle of red wine and dessert drinks with less than 50€ all together. The menu is quite basic but has something for everyone and for all size of hunger. The service was friendly and... read more

The food here tries to be middle eastern, and succeeds in one sense: the meat, fries and bread are generally dry and hard. It's not too expensive, but if you're looking for value for money, look elsewhere. Ok for beer and appetizers, and the staff tries hard, which is why it gets two stars, not one.

I have been there for lunch. Because I knew the Sphinx in Kielce I did believe it would be as good. But I was wrong. the food was just to greasy and it was too dark. However, the staff did try to satisfy us. I will not return.

I discovered this restaurant one evening and I wish I had not. The best thing I can say about it was that it was within 5 minutes walk of my hotel. I ordered a spicy chicken dish (Delicia Shorma), the chicken was well and truly over cooked, a hammer and chisel was required just to break it. It must have... More

There are definitely worse places to go and this does offer fairly fast food at a reasonable price. The range isn't quite as extensive as other food places in the area but overall the service was great and the atmosphere was nice. There was a radio playing in the background which kept us entertained and the food was brought out... More

Good value, but food not as good as other "Sphink's" in Gdansk and Poznan, location not special, downstairs in a shopping mall, and a bit dark for a lunchtime visit.

The name and outlook is Egipcian. Some of the dishes are inspired by the Middle East cuisine. You can't beat the size and price of the dishes. Children loved it

Nothing spectacular. Decent food. Find one of the deals with a pitcher of beer and 2 shawarmas, and it's a good buy.
