Had never been here before and heard nothing about it. Very clean restaurant, service was fantastic and food delicious. No alcohol available but that wasn't an issue, food was light not deep fried. Very relaxing.

We ate here late on a Monday night and had the entire place to ourselves. Our waitress was charming and accommodating and the food was very good. We had stuffed grape leaves and a falafel burger with fries. Delicious!

Description
Taste Of Egypt is a family dining specialized in Mediterranean cuisine. We also have some North American, Thai and fusion Indian options on the menu. The name 'Taste Of Egypt' does not only refer to the flavor of the food but also the decor, music and the complete cultural experience. We take pride in serving our customers fresh and local food everyday. Our food is all made from scratch using fresh local products. From our hummus, burgers, stir fry's, kebabs and our fabulous garlic sauce, Chef Ehab serves only the best to our guests. We have a fabulous menu that has something for everyone. Recently, we have launched our new catering menu which is great for events big or small and is geared towards private gatherings, business meetings, weddings or parties. You can enjoy our cuisine if you want to dine-in, take-out, order delivery or order catering.
