The food wasn't that great, meat "grilled Kofta" was not fresh. The restaurant decoration is wonderful however, I found the price was expensive for the quality of the food.

Food was good, service excellent. Food came quickly after order. I came in hoping to have a tagine, but their's were not the typical Moroccan/Algerian tagines. So I had Chicken tandoori kabobs. They offer a smattering of Indian and Thai food also. Baklava was excellent!

Firstly, the service was amazing. I went there for with a friend for lunch, there was only one waitress on the shift, but she was checked up us frequently and was very friendly. Given it was peak time I was very impressed with the service I received. Secondly, they have lots of options for vegans and vegetarians even on their... More

Went with one of my guests and we really enjoyed the meal. The waitress was excellent. She took the time to explain each item as we ordered including the spiciness or hotness. The servings are such that we took home a baggy for later! the decore is fun! King Tut's alive and well in Saint John :)

We were told about Taste of Egypt and are so glad we went. A savory dinner with an excellent server (Mei Ling). Moussaka Tajine, Beef Kofta, the Key of Life, and Rack of Lamb. Each selection was delicious. The atmosphere is quiet and welcoming. A terrific dinner experience.

We were in Saint John and were looking for a break from the regular fare, and found this place. We ordered a selection of starters for takeaway (hummus and pita, falafel, and tabouleh salad). Man, was it ever good! The tabouleh was fresh and flavourful with just the right amount of dressing. Often places just douse it in dressing, but... More

Great food with a nice quiet atmosphere. We ordered appatizers and extra sides thinking that the portions would be too small. I had to take half the food back home. Very generous portions and delicious food full of flavors. The menu offers lost of veriety to try different food and items. I want to go again to try other items.

I have eaten here many times - trying different menu items each time. The lunch buffet is a great money value with a few great dishes, salads and desserts. Service is with a smile and the food arrives always hot, flavorful.
