Our group sat at the riverbank and enjoyed traditional Middle Eastern fare freshly made with excellent service. I recommend ordering the kebab grill platter which is served sizziling hot on a small fire on the table. Traditional musicians entertained us while we ate.

You come here for the grilled meats and the location! It's located right on the Nile, with beautiful views of the city. The food is excellent Egyptian fare of koftas, kebabs, and salads. The bread is made fresh, on site.

I stayed at Sofitel hotel so I automatically went to this restaurant when I arrived late night. The food was great and the seating was beautiful.

The food at the restaurant was not bad but as with everything else in the Sofitel, staff seemed uninterested and were not at all attentive. It is a terrible thing to say, but the truth is that I have received a far better service at fast-food restaurants. I will not eat here again.
