My husband and I discovered this restaurant a couple weeks ago, and it was so good, we had to get back as soon as possible. So, last night was our second outing. It's easy to see that Chef Samir really cares about great food. Everything we've had has been excellent. We don't normally get an appetizer and dessert in addition to our main meal when we go out, but at Chef Samir's, we couldn't pass up the opportunity. Among our favorite items so far are Spicy Potato and Egyptian Yogurt appetizers, Egyptian Mulu’ Khia soup, Chicken Shawerma, and Chef Samir Mixed Gril. For dessert, Umm Ali is amazing if you can wait the extra 15 minutes it takes to bake. If not, the rice pudding is excellent. In addition, I would be seriously remiss if I didn't mention the salad, which is served with every entree. It's not an afterthought like at most restaurants. Beautifully colorful, it is made of of the crisp portions of romaine lettuce, red cabbage, green and red bell peppers, cucumber, and tomato. I will go to Chef Samir's just for the salad.
Further, the service is friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. Chef Samir makes an effort to greet each table personally. If this restaurant continues to gain in popularity like I think it will, he will be so busy I imagine he won't be able to get out of the kitchen!
