“a very good resturant with a distinguished decoration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

this is my first time to dine in this resturant, i went with my family to El Mohandessin branch, the interior decoration is very distinguished with its african jungle theme with sterio effects of animal & birds sounds played continuously simulating a jungle together with the walls decorations that simulate the interior of a cave with branches of trees and animals maquettes.
the service was excellent,the menue was very rich, but some items were not available, the quality of food was excellent , yet i found one drawback : as i ordered my steak to be grilled medium well , the steak was served to me undercooked close to raw, the steward was checking that every thing is ok when i informed him about my remark he apologized and took my steak for further grilling & brought it back to me correctly grilled.
the meals of my other family members were all very good in quality & quantity and delicious in taste.
when we came to the deserts we found it not good at all , i do not recomend ordering deserts in this resturant.
i noticed that the steward checked our table several times to be sure that every thing is OK, so did also the manager
The overall experience is very good & the prices were very reasonable and i certainly recomend it to everybody for a different & distinguished dinner or supper.
