this is a well known restaurant in Aswan that can be easily reached, it is visited by both Egyptians and foreigners, it serves authentic Egyptian food in a very good quality with good prices. I personally recommend meat specialties specially lamb.

Taken here by our guide, we would never have found it ourselves. Great value for money with traditional Egyptian food and hospitality.

By far the best place to eat in Aswan. I enjoyed the delicious three course meals for under a tenner. The choice of grilled chicken, lamb cutlets or Fish,my favourite, served with rice, vegetable dish, Bread, salad and variety of three dips. The Lentil soup was the best ever and I would dine there three times a week. Desserts I... More

We found this restaurant in the lonely planet Egypt book and it would be a shame for people to miss out on it, because it isn't listed on tripadvisor.
