Our food was not good at all. My lamb was tasty however the potatoes were burned to a crisp and I choked on the salad. My wife's tajine was not hot and tasteless. We told the waitress about it. Sadly Paula was not there or...else I would have spoken with her. We will not be returning.More

We had a family evening meal at this restaurant. Parking is great and free. There was one server for the entire restaurant. Food was slow and the poor server was run off their feet.

My husband and I decided we wanted to go out for lunch today, and we wanted something different. I suggested we go to Taste of Egypt, because we had been thinking of going there and just hadn’t got around to it. What a great restaurant!...The food was delicious, our server Kyle was the best, and the atmosphere was lovely! It was so nice we decided to go there for our anniversary!More

We took our 3 kids (8,9,10 in age) to lunch here today for their 1st time, and I think they have found their new favourite restaurant in Saint John. There was a great selection of items on the Kids Menu, which was nice to see....Our kids chose (without prompting) a couple of the Chicken Shawarma and a Beef Kofta Kebab, and some juice. Us parents ordered up a Falafel Burger and Chicken Shawarma with Tabouli Salad. The kids each received a large (in our opinion) glass of juice, a great portion of healthy, delicious (according to them) food, and then got served up a really cool build-your-own ice cream sundae, and a cool little toy each as a takeaway. They were thoroughly impressed, as were we by the offering and the value received. Our meals were great as well, complete with a Turkish coffee that was spot on. Great meal selections, friendly service, tasty healthy food for the whole family, and great value. Definitely give this restaurant consideration the next time you're seeking a meal when out with the kids. We know we'll certainly be back!More

I'm amazed with the how good the food is on this restaurant! I first visited it with a friend after work. I ordered lamb chops with yellow rice and salad. I ordered double the rice and salad because they served plenty of meat. I also...ordered Egyptian tea. It was all served in decorative plates and cups. The food was awesome. After I ate I ordered the same to go to have it the next day again. Two days later I visited again with my wife. She also loved the food thereMore
