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

“Great, honest food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

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.

“32 years later - even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

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 the past. The anwer: even better now.

The best falafel and fuul anywhere. If it is your first time time just get those (plain) along with some olive oil for the fuul, tahina dip for the falafel and some pikles (torsy) - bottled water to drink).
