I could eat here several times a week and never get tired of it!! CHECK THIS PLACE OUT!! It was really busy the other night and the owner came out and apologized. He didn't need to, we were very happy to wait.

I was thoroughly impressed with the food. The chef himself came out to greet us. Neither had Egyptian fare before, and found it to be very good. Surprisingly good. Very reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere. Would recommend anyone looking for something different to try this place

We went there for my soin-in-law's birthday to try something new. Very similar to the Lebanese foods that we got to try in Israel. Amazing flavors and a great atmosphere with friendly staff.

Restaurant wasn't terribly busy when we went, but the service was just incredibly slow. Food was average but still good. Really enjoyed the appetizer platter with the different types of humus. Restaurant was beautifully appointed however.

This restaurant may be worth trying again. I'm not sure. When we got there only 2 waitresses were trying to take care of the whole place. It took about 10 minutes to get a table cleaned for us to be seated. Our food arrived about...More
