Dinner with friends at Magdys turned out to be exquisite. We had an elegant dinner of Venison topped with a sauce of Cherries, cognac & wine cooked to perfection with a side dish of a heavenly Polenta where one bite called for another. All pre-empted with an elegant salad filled with hearts of palm. I'm a cookbook author and have... More

Magdy opened on Sunday night for our wedding dinner. It was expensive, but worth every dollar. The Lamb was amazing, and he and his staff made it a remarkable evening for ourselves and 15 friends and relatives.

Today, on my birthday, I treated myself to lunch at Magdy's. This restaurant is elegant, European in ambience, and an oasis in a desert of fast food joints. Magdy Atwa, owner and chef, knows exactly what to do with lamb. Mouthwatering, tender, cut it with a fork. He's got a full bar, beers and wines. You won't find water spotted,... More

My wife and I were in town with our daughter for her college orientation and decided to go have a nice dinner by ourselves. After looking up the restaurants around us we decided to try Magdy's and it was one of the best decisions we ever made! To start, the staff is EXCELLENT! Very friendly and accomodating. The food selection... More

OK, so there is no cute hostess to whisk you to your table. In fact, you may need to wait awhile for anyone to realize you are there in this low volume, high quality establishment. The interior is not fancy and a little dated. I urge you: wait. The lamb I ordered was without a doubt the best I ever... More

Magdy makes WONDERFUL food. Yum yum! His waitstaff leaves a lot to be desired. If it wasn't for the yummy food, we wouldn't go back. The food is too good not to go back though. I don't suggest going when you're in a hurry. The staff spends more time making excuses for their poor service than they do providing service... More

The food was good (delicious but not outstanding), but the restaurant is located in an old house in a residential neighborhood. The house and front yard is in a bit of disrepair. There were only two other people in the entire restaurant on a Monday night. Not a good or bad choice. It may not be in business long.

My husband and I have not lived in Terre Haute long, but soon tired of the same-old chain restaurants and steak houses, so when happened to drive by Magdy's one day, I looked to see if an reviewed it on Trip Advisor. Based on the reviews, we tried it, and were very glad we did. The food was excellent---the Chicken... More

My husband are from the Terre Haute area, however we have never come to Magdy's before this evening. In fact, I came to the prior restaurant in this location -- Richard's Townhouse -- on my junior prom night 30 years ago. My husband and I enjoyed the risotto Appetizer - very good, but I would have liked it hot rather... More
