“Best Falafel in the world !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2015 NEW

Best Falafel in the world .... that's what the Guardians wrote about Mohamed Ahmed's Falafel and they're right about that !
Great place for breakfast on a Friday morning. Totally recommended if you're in Alexandria.

“Cheap but not cheerful!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2015

This is a very basic place for locals to eat.

Tables and floor were dirty, as were the uniforms of the waiters.

The foul was the worst I ever ate in Egypt, swimming in grease (not olive oil) with hard beans.

Falafel was well spiced but again far too greasy.

The green salad was chopped up like rabbit food and lacked any flavour.

The tihana was terribly salty.

The bread was good.

The bill for the above with water was only EGP 19, but that was all it was worth. I left EGP20 and the waiter complained I did not tip him enough.

This place is best avoided.

“Best foul and flafel in town!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2015

The place gives you instantly this original old vibe, after all it has been there for more than 55 years and it has kept its standards very good since then. They over a wide range of traditional foul and flafel dishes beside omelets and grilled cheese. It has finally opened again after a long closure so it's a place not to be missed while in alexandria.
