This place may not be the most attractive restaurant from outside but it's worth it, the dishes are very good, service is professional and most important...it's clean. The portions are big, I tried beef steak which comes along a vegetable soup, a salad and some local cream (sorry I forgot the name). Cream caramel is really good though. Prices are... More

We were searching for authentic Egyptian food in Aswan and came to Mecca. It's pretty close to the railway station and condish Nile. The staff is pretty professional, the detailed menu is in English and the food is delivered pretty fast. We ordered sheesh touq and lamb kabab. While the sheesh touq was melt in mouth the kabab was chewy... More

The Place and food were decent... However, we had to wait for a longer time till someone came and took our order... While under normal circumstances this would been okay... When we went there, we were already hungry and tired... So, not sure what factored, maybe they did not have any english speaking waiter and hence we had to wait...... More

these guys have huge portion size and lot of complementary dishes. We ordered hummus, baba ghonous and one more veg dish along with some bread. And our table was full with things we never ordered. They were all complementary. A little on the expensive side but really sumptuous and tasty food.

This is an okay restaurant near the souk in Aswan. My roast pigeon was fine, but I"ve had better. They seemed to be out of most things and don't even think of ordering a Stella beer, they just laughed at me.

Do not waste your money there. The food is way below average, when edible. A soup like water, meat impossible to shew, salad tasteless. No service, no attention to customer and a mistake in the bill... Go better to abeer 20 m further.

This restaurant has good food. The issue you've got to decide is how hungry you are. If you're really hungry, then this is a good place to go. All the mains come with rice, baba ghanoush, hummus, salad, bread. So, there's a mountain to eat if you're famished. On the other hand, if you're not famished, then you'll still the... More
