“Decent restaurant with a great view of the seaside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Located nicely along the seaside, the restaurant provides a great view of the Mediterranean as well as the city. We actually ate there three times, once for lunch and twice for dinner.

Regarding the lunch, the service was lousy - everything took ages even though there were not a lot of customers present... The buri bread was delicious, though.

The first dinner was during the Ramadan feast, that is, there was a total chaos within the restaurant as everyone wanted food at the same time. The staff mostly ran around like headless chicken, but still managed to be quite attentive. We ordered the Ramadan menu, which consisted of soup (excellent), some apricot drink (quite good), bread & salad (very good), cordon bleu (w/ turkey instead of ham, of course - excellent), and finally some sweets & tea (also very good).

For the second dinner, we avoided the Ramadan frenzy, only to see the staff fall back into laziness. In addition, they were unable to serve half the menu, and I ended up with quite mediocre kofte.

In conclusion, this restaurant truly knows how to provide a great meal, they only tend to forget it at times. The view is still magnificent, though.

“Average food, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

We stopped off at the Tikka Grill during a day trip to Alexandria, there was a good choice of food on the menu and the salad bar was great. However we had to wait a long time for our main courses to be brought out despite many other people who had arrived in the restaurant after us being served much more quickly. After asking for our food twice it was eventually given to us. The food was ok and good value for money.
