The food was delicious and the place is nice. However, it has a lot of smokers and the smoking is everywhere. The price is little bit high, but it worth going there to eat typical Egyptian food. I had okra and it was great

This place came highly recommended but I will not be rushing back. Over salted everything, but especially the yaprak dolma, and gloopy sauces. Awful service, even allowing for the language difficulties.
