4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This restaurant is value for money. Good option of salads and very good falafel we have ever tasted in Egypt.

“Authentic. Tasty. Cheap. Clean. Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We really fell in love with the worlds best felafel you can get there. The salads, the foul, baba ghanough.....everything is very tasty and to be recommended.
The waiters are friendly and spreak a little bit of English so there are no difficulties.
Try to get a table upstairs if there a free ones, it is a little bit quieter.

“Very Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food might taste good , If you're in the mood for slumming it .. but you have to be able to tolerate very dirty surroundings while you eat .. If Vulgar people , a lot of garbage & a few cockroaches don't bother you .. you'll be just fine .. I definitely DO NOT RECOMMEND this Place

“Best falafel I've ever tasted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Had lunch here today. Bustling little eatery in the heart of Alexandria. Efficient service (somewhat uncommon in Egypt) but most importantly excellent food. We had the falafel which was light, crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle, the fuul, pickled vegetables, tahini, hummus etc. highly recommended.

“i'd live there if they let me...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

the exquisite taste of the most Egyptian foods. you WILL NOT find a better tasting falafel anywhere else in Egypt. and of course their signature "fried cheese" is literally out of this world. Mohamed Ahmed is definitely the best place to have breakfast, brunch or supper in Alexandria.
