We had reserved a table at the Oriental grill restaurant and we saw the sign of the restaurant and found the restaurant to be completely empty. We sat down at the table, ordered some drinks and the staff did not speak good english. The waiter did not understand what a "soda water" was. We then received the menu and realized... More

And we love arabic food! Neither the mezze or the main courses impressed. We hade one half cooked wheal and one ordinary grilled chicken. Nothing... More

We decided early on in our holiday that we would try this restaurant as it was not here when we last came six year previous and it was offering traditional Egyptian cuisine which we love. The location is good next to the water way and across from the oriental grill. It is only a short walk from the centre of... More

Great food from a starter perspective but my husbands veal tagine was under cooked and very salty. My koshari was great and plentiful. the main issue was the waiter who obviously was either having a bad day or had missed the charm school section of training, very rude and abrupt not only to us but to another member of staff...we...

It will be a unique experience for foreigners to taste true Egyptian food like what is made in Egyptian houses. It is not very much expensive, just a little. But worth every pound. The scene... More
