We visited Makka for a late lunch one day. The air conditioning was very welcome and the place came fairly highly recommended by our local guide. We were hoping for something a bit better than what we've been having at other local restaurants but it...More

I have to admit..strolling through the Aswan souk in daytime at 45° C is hell. Finding a spot for dinner a burden.. but Makka is airc'd and the staff friendly. Most of the customers are male and the athmosphere is religious. Four flatscreens give constant...More

Best grills, rice, soups, a must in Aswan, at a very reasonable price. Close to the railway station and Nile river a gem hidden between shops. We went twice in a week, always full with foreigners.

Here for lunch with a big group. Service was very prompt and staff friendly and helpful. Everyone very happy with their meal. A few of us ordered grilled pidgeon. There were plenty of tasty accompanients. Prices good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Found the waiters slightly racial but the food is good- the beef and the pork are very tasty. Do take all the accompaniments - like the salads and breads n dips to make it a hearty meal!

The place is a bit small and crowded. Some of the items listed in the menu were not available so it would have been better if we were informed earlier before deciding but the food is tasty (kofta, pasta, moza and fatta)

The journey to the restaurant is colourful to start! Food is delicious and reasonably priced. We had the mixed grilled platter with lamb and meat shish Kevin and the breaded chicken. I would recommend ordering tahini for the chicken and yogurt for the lamb and...More
