We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at El Attar. If you're hungry go for the banquet. You won't be able to finish it. The bread is especially delicious. It was so quirky with the Rasta hats as placemats, though. It all added to the atmosphere.

Visited with a vegan friend, she was well looked after, enjoyed the food as did I with my lamb version. The Turkish delight was great.

Never been to an Egyptian restaurant before but will definitely come to this one again. The food is so tasty and fresh very similar to Lebanese cuisine but there are also dishes which are uniquely Egyptian.
