“Great egyptian pie/ egyptian pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Taverna is a great restaurant offering very good egyptian pie - also the sweet ones are very good. We were there at about 7pm, it was not very crowded and we got a good table upstairs at the window - we can really recommend to sit there because you can watch them making the pizzas downstairs :)
There is at least one waiter speaking very good English, the menue is also in Arabic and English so communication is very easy.
You can also oder food to take away.

“Try the Egyptian style pizza (pie)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Well this place was a great find. Stunningly good food.
The lemon juice was also very good. try the mince meat, also try the chicken swarmer, we debated over which of these two was the best.

“Great pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

If you feel like some good-ol' cheesy pizza, Taverna is the place to go. It's very central (across from Midan Ramla), the staff is nice and the service is quick.
