I've been there twice with my friends and I can tell you you'll find delicious food! The menu holds variety of stuff you could choose from, prices are good and reasonable. The plates are clean. The food is not oily which was a revelation to me. Usually in Foul and Falafel restaurants, the Falafel... read more

In the past, this place offered the best foul and falafel, Lately, I went with a friend to grab a bit, but we were disappointed. The foul and falafel are not as they used to be. The cab driver told us the original owners sold it, and someone new is now managing it

the place is very humble and traditional got its accient style, but you cant visit Alexandria without trying its menu, the most beautiful foul & falafel experience you will ever try :), but it's a little dirty so if you mind that just take away food would be great

As a tourist, you cannot be in Alexandria without paying a visit to this traditional restaurant specialized in Egyptian food, based mainly on 'Foul' or horse beans with oil and spices. Try also Felafel, fried cheese (the Egyptian version of Greek 'Saganaki'), and in winter lentil soup. If you are into vegetarian food, this is the place to be in... More

A bustling justifiably spot, popular for decades. A simple menu of traditional basic Egyptian foods wonderfully done. The service is efficient and friendly, but not elegant, and the decor is basic; but one goes here for the food and the atmosphere is just what you would expect.
