Simple restaurant with decent food.

Far better than some of the fancy restaurants in river side area. Simple, to the point restaurant serving Egyptian food not just to tourists but also to locals. Located close to the railway station.

Coming out of the Nubian Museum into pitch blackness I was sort of stumped as to how I would get back to town, not that it's that far to walk, but still. I decided to go Muslim and trust in Allah who immediately delivered Mohammed to me in his slightly beat up Peugeot. After bargaining for a bit we agreed... More

I tried a number of restaurants in Aswan. None of them were very good and most of them were overpriced. Makka was no exception to this trend. It wasn't horrible, but I wasn't very satisfied either. Their vegetarian selections were limited to a couple soups, french fries, "stuffed vegetables", and a vegetable meal. I opted for the vegetable meal because... More

I went there at this restaurant with my family, a big one (14).The place is clean, a little small. The service is very good, the food was not delayed at all and it was delicious. I had the kebab and kofa and also the shish tawook. This is coming from an Egytpian who knows his way around Egyptian grills.

For cooked vegetables it is fine but if you ordered shesh or grilled meat or chicken you will definitely hate it

Not the best, not even good. Food was not up to the standards nor service. Prices are fair and equal to the quality of the food.

I have wanted to try this restaurant for some time but as I'm usually travelling solo, I had not got around to it. This time I was joined by friends, so we decided to go and I'm glad we did. The restaurant was busy with a lot of takeout orders but the dine in was not too busy. Firstly the... More

My husband and I were on a Nile River Cruise where we hated the food, which was included in our fare, and nothing was Egyptian or even Arabic. We decided, while the boat was docked in Aswan, to have our only authentic meal of the trip. Thanks to TripAdvisor, my husband saw that this restaurant, located by the train station,... More
