“Meat lovers go for it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This place is famous for meat kebabs. they are awesome. You must go here once atleast if you happen to visit alexandria
The bread they serve is hot, such that steam comes out if you poke it.
Must try the grill chicken. It is marinated and grilled on charcoal.
the salads are fresh and fantastic.
Youll get the best meat here!!

“Stuffed Pigeon Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This place is simply amazing. I have been to it twice so far and each time I was impressed. Both meat and seafood are great. But my personal favourite is that you can order stuffed pigeons that are stuffed with "fereek" instead of ride, which is not a common option in restaurants. The atmosphere is authentic and the service is attentive. It's become a must whenever I visit Alex.
