“Worth a try!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Checking in late to the Sheraton Montazah, my colleagues and I were hungry and one asked the valet where to eat. Without compunction, he immediately recommended Hosny, pointed to the side street by the hotel and said it was right up the street. Well, it was, indeed -- up the street, around the corner and down another street. But everyone knew where it was so getting directions was no problem.

On arrival, we were immediately seated. The restaurant appeared to have several rooms and we were pointed to a level above (two steps) the other floor. This afforded me a grand view of other diners and their meals and helped with my selection.

We were immediately served with hot bread and salads while the waiter, who spoke excellent English, took our order. In no time we were served our dishes and we tucked in. I had seafood soup and moussa (sole) that was excellent. One of my colleagues ordered the seafood soup as well and remarked how good it was. But she didn't like the entree she ordered - it looked like Vienna sausages to me (not kofta) -- so I shared my sole with her, which was more than enough for the two of us. My other colleague tried the okra with lamb and I tried it. It was excellent. The bill came to LE300 (slightly less than US$50) with decent tip.

I would recommend Hosny for a good (not fancy), tasty dining experience.
