“Chicken kebab”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Came here twice and it was excellent both times. Enjoyed the traditional Egyptian molokhia with some added chicken the first time. Absolutely loved the chicken kebab the second time: two skewers of chicken, onions, peppers cooked to perfection plus some rice. The servers are comfortably friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed Dahab-style, they do the typical bread and appetizers, bedouin tea and fruit for dessert, with a nice lemon handwashing ceremony. As with the other restaurants on this strip you can bargain about discounts on the entrees, especially if you're a group.
