The food at this place was excellent. Kebab grill was delicious and well seasoned. Nice spot right close to our hotel and very reasonable prices. A good intro to Egyptian food! Nice sitting outside overlooking the Nile

Excellent hotel dining!! Get the mixed grill, cooked at your table, and the combination appetizer. Very reasonable. Under order as the portions are very big. Open from noon to midnight, serving lunch and dinner. Do not miss this restaurant!

Every time I go to Cairo this is one of the first places I visit. The service is spotty. The food is good and plain - traditional grilled meats. But it is in the middle of the Nile! You are surrounded by the Nile and views of Cairo. I'm always amazed at being where I am. It's not the fanciest... More

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.
