they only have chicken kebab on the menu, but they give you a menu which is full of choice. We asked for wine and someone was sent out to get glasses. A basic in any restaurant I would have thought.

This doesn't look like much from the outside but we ended up eating there for 3 nights. The food was remarkably good for Egypt and the rice was exceptional. Wine was really reasonable LE50 for a bottle (plus taxes and service which adds about 22%)....More
