“Truly Egyptian food & atmosphere”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The most impressive thing in Abou El Sid Restaurant is the ambiance or atmosphere, it is truly Egyptian even in the taste of the food. It will be a unique experience for foreigners to taste true Egyptian food like what is made in Egyptian houses.
It is not very much expensive, just a little. But worth every pound. The scene from there is extremely beautiful.

“Interesting”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Made an error on first visit and we all ordered the same starter amnd got dozens of stuffed vine leaves between us. Choose differing dishes and share off of the lazy susan.
Good standard of food. Like the furniture too.

“New!!”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

This restaurant was new to us in 2011. A delightfully charming, young waiter/front of house (who used to be at The China House) looked after us beautifully. Food, service and ambience was good! We will give it another go this coming October!
