We ate here the night before Ramadan and were the only tourists in the place. We were surrounded by Egyptian families, who didn't seem to mind sharing the place with us, although I was a tad overdressed, which the waiters found quite amusing. The family next to us even offered us hand wipes before we ate.
We ordered a selection of dips to start and the bread was heavenly. We could have made a meal of this had we not ordered a main course.
We looked around at what our fellow diners were eating and asked the advice of the waiters. We decided on the seafood platter and a mixed kebab plate with sides, which quite honestly we didn't do justice there was so much food. These were washed down with the local fruit and milk drinks, a bit like smoothies. We took our time and soaked in the atmosphere and the general banter.
This is a busy restaurant and you may have to wait for a table due to its popularity with the locals, which is a recommendation in itself.
The quality of our food was excellent and the dishes all very reasonably priced.
As other reviewers have said, this is not the ideal venue if you are looking for an intimate candlelit dinner for two. However, if you want a local dining experience with a stellar menu, then this is definitely a great choice.
