Good menu with very tasty food and our waiters from Moroco as I think was so welcoming and friendly and saved us by getting the translated Menu from the french one :)

Very good shoarma and chicken with the great tasty sauces. The one thing that bothered me was the side salade because it had no dressing on it. The place was a liitle bite dark but it had a bad smell that can ruin your dinner. But still the best shoarma in the city

I had shawarma. The meat on its own was not that tasty but the several sauces they bring you make the difference.Generous portions.I saw many people there so maybe their other dishes are better?Also, kind staff.

The place is neat and well fournished but it is small and it gets very crowded. The food is good but nothing special. They serve Halal food and there is no pork nor alcohol.

I read about Le Nil on trip advisor, and peoples comments are very true, the place is a surprise, food is excellent, grills are spiced and cooked very well, served nicely on the hot plates with the salads and home made bread, We had Cairo and Nil mixed grills, really worth it. It doesn't matter how much you are full..... More

Le Nil is a place where you definitely want to go. Fast service and friendly waiters, even when it gets packed The grilled meat plates (Alexandrie, Cairo or Le Nil) are to recommend. You get plenty of food (meat, bread, sauces, salad) for a very reasonable price (14-15 EUR). It is a popular place for locals as well as for... More
