Very high end restaurant. Clean and good service. The grill taste good. But consider its price, e.g. 120 L.E. for only 6 small pieces of meat, its taste is no longer worthing the price. But you can have a lot of arabic bread.

This is a wonderful authentic Egyptian restaurant, complete with classic local oriental band. The Kofta and Kebab was a must ofcourse, but I liked their grape leaves with hoofs, and their Um Ali too. Freshly baked bread and an excellent view and "hear" of the Nile .

This restaurant is located right on the river Nile , in the Soffitel Hotel , you can eat watching to the Nile and see boats floating on it. It's a very nice quite place. You need to make reservation first to make sure that you will find a place.

The restuarant belongs to Sofitel hotel in Zamalek, on entry you find a lady who bakes the bread in a traditional oven, we were seated next to the nile and we enjoyed the beautiful night view during our meal, we opted for assorted cold mesh which was plentiful, grilled lamb chops together with kofta and kabab, staff were friendly and...

Reserve a table outside by the Nile. The bread is freshly baked and exceptional. Musicians playing in the background add to the ambiance. The food and service were excellent.
