“Awesome food & service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

In the last week my boyfriend and I ate here about four times. We have been travelling for awhile and this was by far the best restaurant we have come across on our trip. The food is absolutely delicious and the waiters are very polite and efficient. Unlike many restaurants in Dahab it is clean! The ambience is also very nice! I would recommend this to anyone!

“Do not bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Ate here last week with friends. The service was painfully slow getting our food, it appeared that there was only one waiter which was the same as four of my friends, meat in a tomato sauce. The naan bread was underdone. We had barely finshed eating and our table got cleared at lightening speed by several waiters, some of us were still chewing our dinner.

“Nice looking restaurant but the service fell far below expectations”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

This restaurant looks lovely and has an extensive menu that creates a good first impression.

Our popadoms were good and we were looking forward to our various Indian and Chinese dishes. After a long gap one of our group went to chase up the kitchen and there then followed a frantic running up and down stairs with plates for everyone.

Sadly the dishes did not match our expectations, some of the group got dishes that looked identical after placing different orders. My own dish looked lovely but the skillet it was served on was so hot (probably due to the sudden haste) that it burnt the vegetables and bottom of my chicken.

Our experience seems to be out of kilter with many others however, which hopefully means that they had an off night and the staff will be in better form if you decide to visit.

Personally I will not return to this restaurant if I make another trip to Dahab.

“What a find and what a bargain.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

In the last fortnight have visited three times and each time have had an excellent meal.Have had Indian twice and the third time from the Chinese menu and would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.The service is very good,the atmosphere is good the position is good,in fact everything about it is good.The real bargain comes in if there are two of you and you have dinner before six o'clock you then get two for one on price.But not on quantity or quality.Both my wife and I fully recommend this restaurant.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Once again on our visit to Dahab we ate twice in the kitchen. Every time we have enjoyed it very much. Its good to have the choice & be able to eat in the same restaurant. We have tried chinese & indian & found all very nice & good value.
On a nice evening its good to be able to eat out on the balcony over looking Dahab.
The staff are friendly & welcoming without being pushy.
Look forward to returning !
