The food might taste good , If you're in the mood for slumming it .. but you have to be able to tolerate very dirty surroundings while you eat .. If Vulgar people , a lot of garbage & a few cockroaches don't bother you .. you'll be just fine .. I definitely DO NOT RECOMMEND this Place

Had lunch here today. Bustling little eatery in the heart of Alexandria. Efficient service (somewhat uncommon in Egypt) but most importantly excellent food. We had the falafel which was light, crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle, the fuul, pickled vegetables, tahini, hummus etc. highly recommended.

Had egg with falafel & humus - so delicious! Very busy, although I didn't see any other foreigners on my visit. Highly recommend.

Mohamed Ahmed is a small, unpretentious place. The menu is simple and doesn't have many choices, but what is offered is first rate. Delicious beans, heavenly falafel! It was full of locals when I had lunch.

After 32 years, I returned for a week in Alexandria. I landed late in the evening. My host asked me what I would like for dinner and my answer was prompt: fuul and falafel at Mohamed Ahmed (the old Beniamin), although, that is not typical for dinner. After I finised my dinner, the attendant asked if it was better in... More

Had a filling lunch after many days. Small place, nothing flashy, however the quality of food served is delicious. Any preparations of foul is simply irrestible. Love to come back to Alexandria at least for this.
