This is more a local restaurant than a tourist restaurant and overall it serves basic but tasty Egyptian food at very reasonable prices. Good kebab and great hot pitta bread with mezze. Good place to eat within a budget. Service and English could be better

The food was fresh and very tasty. It was, by far, the best lunch we had had in Egypt. Plenty to eat. Service was good.
