Only a short walk from the waterfront but a different world. Typical scenery and quality for a restaurant in this location. Our visit might not have been typical because our guide knew the owner and ordered dinner family style. Copious amounts of food were served to where we have little to no place to set any of it down. Everything... More

If you find your self hungry with little options in Aswan go for something grilled , forget about ordering local dishes , they are cooked with too much fat.

the food doesn't have good taste and full of margarine which makes the food very heavy and looks awful. In addition the food doesn't look clean and served in a very unorganized way.

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.

Thank shainky
