What can you say here
Unique recipes, tender meat, helpful polite stuff, super clean toilets.
Food is excellent.
Service is excellent.
Taste is genuine and unique.
Atmosphere is good but not perfect.
Prices are relatively expenses, though it worth it.

This place in Kasr eleini street has always been the best place for kebab ever I remember its great taste when I used to go there with my parents in the seventies.

Today it is still the same great place and also available in Maadi al nasr street where you have more space and larger sitting areas.

Don't miss the salads and the "roz belkhalta" the hamam soup is also tasty and they introduced shrimps in the menu.

The grilled chicken is also one of the best as well as the "hamam mahshi"

Absolutely no comment , always a great place, just note that in Kasr eleini street parking is not easy (almost impossible) in Maadi, parking is easier.

I would like also to recommend the hawawshi for takeaway or home delivery, it's much tastier and less Fatty than the popular hawawshi.

Amazing tender meat, the flavour is out of this world! I tried kabab, kofta and appetizers, everything was so good! Just passing by you can smell the wonderful aroma of the grilled lamb from far. This is a place that you must eat in if you are in Cairo. It is a Culinary experience that you will never have any where else!

The best oriantel meal ever, soup then kabab and Kofta with some salads likely tehina and homos. A good place for a family gathering or a group of friends who wish to get filled with protein.
