“Good humous”
Review of King Tut - CLOSED

King Tut
Cuisines: Middle Eastern
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

Went here for take out when in Philly on business. I got a vegetable samosa which was good, lamb curry which was not good, and humous with Naan bread. the humous was top notch and as good as the stuff I've had in the middle east. I'd overlook the poor curry and go back just for the humous.
They also do hookah/sheesha but I didn't sample any of them when there.

We were welcomed very warmly by the restaurant owner. The restaurant is small enough that it is run primarily by owner and his family. They were very gracious, made every effort that we liked our food and brought us tea and desert without us ordering it showing extreme hospitality. Would highly recommend for a relaxed, friendly and personal dining experience.

The restaurant is in a cute little corner building and is very cozy. Even though there are more tables than you would expect in the space, because of how it's all laid out you don't feel close to the other tables at all. The 2 of us sat at a 4 top with enclosed benches to sit on - it felt like we had the best seat in the house even though it was right in the middle of the room. The service was friendly and personal - the owner (who is from Egypt) waited on us all night and we ended up sitting there talking to him for quite a while after we were finished. The service is not hurried - if you are going to the theater or have a time limit, this may not be the place for you. The food was wonderful - we ordered way too much! We had lentil soup which was wonderful, the Kings Mezze platter, which could have been dinner by itself, and lamb and chicken shwarma. It was all terrific food - an all around wonderful evening and I would highly recommend King Tut!
