We were told about this restaurant by our neighbours at the Hotel so were really looking forward to it and it didn't disappoint. He also told me about having to wear long trousers which saved me having to borrow a pair. The place was spotless, great seat next to window so we could see all that was going on down... More

The food from here was amazing and very affordable for a luxury restaurant. Must try when visiting soho square. Only recommendation would be to offer a bigger choice of meals on the menu

Very good service from, I assume, the Manager. Very clean and posh. Food very tasty, fresh and hot. For the look and feel of the restaurant, you would think it's expensive but it's not. Good prices. Best meal we had throughout our whole weeks stay in Sharm El Sheikh. I was even given a small chair to put my handbag... More

Really friendly staff, excellent food, lovely atmosphere and spotlessly clean. What more could you ask for? Just one word of caution - there is a dress code for gents so please wear long trousers and closed in shoes. They do have spares there if you want to borrow them!

Vast menu, something for everyone. Sherif was a GREAT host, we ate like Kings and were made to feel special. For starters we had the duck & chicken, tiger prawns and spring rolls. Mains were beef with oyster sauce and scallops with ginger. To finish we had banana fritters- they make the best!! Filled with plenty of drinks and great... More

Although the food was good at this restaurant, unfortunately we thought that it was rather expensive for what you got (just over £100 for a two course meal and a beer each for 4 people). There is also a dress code (men must wear long trousers and socks) presumably to try to make the atmosphere a bit more “up market”.... More

I dont like Soho square in general, looks fake. Food was just ok without savor and portions were quite small (dumplings esp.). Staff were nice.
