In our visit to Saint John, I was looking for a sit in halal restaurant. This location came up, to our surprise the restaurant was great. Parking at night was free on the street, the decor of the restaurant was great... it gave us an Egyptian feel. The quality and quantity of the dishes were great. The meats were seasoned... More

Asalam Alikum Bilal. Jazakallah kheir! Thank you so much for visiting our restaurant and for writing this great review. This will be great for the Muslims that are travelling in from outside the city. We take pride in serving halal meat even though most of our guests are not looking for it. The halal meat (as I am sure that... More

Lunch with a friend. Friendly staff. Had the lunch buffet. Did not want meat dishes (there were beef and chicken dishes) but they had a lovely robust lentil Soup, a very fresh Greek salad, basmati rice, hummus and pita. Also a rice pudding and baklava, the latter having just a little honey with it and interesting spices with both. I... More

Thank you so much for your review. I am glad to hear that you were happy with the buffet even though you were looking for Vegetarian dishes. The mezza (appetizers) are always so wonderful in Mediterranean cuisine and I do think that they are the stars of the buffet. If you are ever in for dinner you may like to... More

We (3 adults) have been twice in the last few months to the Taste of Egypt in uptown Saint John near the top of King Street. Everything we have tried has been delicious, beautifully presented plates, exceptional table service, in a very relaxing atmosphere. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Don't rush your meal.

Great restaurant. Wonderful, bright tastes, varied menu. Best hummus plate - prettily orchestrated on the plate in a heart-shape! Best moussaka I have ever had. Friendly hosts, great chefs. Redcommend!

Ok I admit I had high hopes before going here. I ordered the falafel burger with fries and the husband ordered the chicken kebab with rice and salad. Both of us felt we have had better.

Thank you for your review. We hate to hear that anyone is disappointed. Our falafel is probably the favourite menu items so this makes me wonder if anything was different?

The food tastes like the chef cooked it for his own family, with love. Beautifully blended flavours, and nice presentation. Elevated comfort food. Staff are friendly and helpful, (especially Jousef!!), and the décor is fitting of the name and the cuisine. This is my favourite Saint John restaurant, by far!!

Middle Eastern food is sometimes easy to find, but is rarely better than average. One can find the typical Middle Eastern dishes such as shish-ka-bobs at many restaurants.
