Cheap Egyptian fast food. Can be very busy at times so not always possible to get in. Half rotisserie chicken, rice, salad, tahina, houmous, bread, soup, vegetables ......all for 50 EGP. 30 EGP if like me you do not have the chicken. With the new exchange rate at the moment this equates to £2.50 and £1.50 respectively - now that's... More

We were advised by locals that if we wanted great meal value, we should check into King Chicken located across the bridge, off the Lighthouse strip. It was well worth the walk to find it. As we had some studying to do in our room, we opted to order food to go and we were amazed at how quickly our... More

Visited this place as it was recommended by a friend. Found that they can't cope with demand with a few tables available, hence, very poor service, I would also question Heigene and cleanliness. The food quality was ok, not amazing by any means. The waiters were rude and looked like they can't handle the pace. And another thing, plenty of... More

We went here a couple of times for dinner! Just located on the market square in Assalah, they offer different specialities from the grill. Every 'Meal' includes a Salad, Bread, Beans, Potatoes, Rice, Soup, Hummus. Just have fresh grilled Kofta and enjoy :) All that for ridiculous prices around 25 to 50 LE Tip: bring your own drink!

We got this place recommended and were really happy. It is a simple, basic place with low prices, you basically choose your meet (the have good rosted chicken, but the kebab is also very nice) and get bread, rice, veggies, soup, salad and humus with it. Portions are huge!! And the staff is also very nice. We went there several... More

Choose chicken or kofta and get a large meal consisting of soup (broth with pasta), a simple salad (cucumber, tomato, fresh herbs, lime), fresh bread, tahina, humus, pickles and the meat of your choice. Simple, good, cheap.
