If you are only looking for good food in a very modest setting this is your place. Fried calamari and grilled branzino is a great prep. The salads are fresh.

The food here is way too expensive and plain. Even though the food is plain sometimes they make it too salty and over the top cumin.. I don't recommend eating there unless you like to overpay for a counted shrimp or calamari. I have also seen them eat off the food they are serving if they see that It has... More

Went in with a little bit of hesitancy due to no one inside and the decor was none but this restaurant did have a good review from yelp and the food did take time but was rewarded with great tasting food with nice spices for flavor. Shrimp fried to calamari to start was very good and the shrimp samwith was... More

Bad management. This is the second time they messed up my order. Expect to wait more than an hour. The place is not clean.

We were looking for a restaurant serving fresh fish in jersey city and stumbled on to this restaurant. The set up and the decor was of a low quality. The tables were covered in plastic sheeting and it looks like a low end cafe. We sat down to our fate and Alas, the food was terrific! The fish was fresh... More

This wonderful Egyptian seafood restaurant doesn't have much in the way of looks, but it is well worth the trip. They offer amazing grilled whole fish, along with traditional Egyptian brown rice rich with onions, chopped salad, and pita bread with hummus (rich in garlic and spice) at very reasonable prices. Tonight they had five types of fish to choose... More

This is a love it or hate it kind of place.  On the negative side, the décor could use some work, it takes a LONG time for the food to come out, they’re often unprofessional, and they do sometimes treat you a certain way depending on who you are and who you come with. On the positive side, the food... More

In Jersey City on business, my husband and I entered this no-frills storefront with low expectations and found a delicious Egyptian seafood restaurant with top-quality fresh ingredients. My husband and I shared a branzino grilled with lemon, garlicky and delicious grilled shrimp, and a chopped green salad with dill and onion. Everything was fresh and tasty. Prices a bargain. And...

Just came back from having dinner at the restaurant; it's not somwthing I would whole heartedly recommend. The unique thing about them is that they offer Egyptian-style seafood; theirs is actually not that good. We ordered 2 fish, a Calimari appetizer along with some Tahini & Baba Ghanouj; fish was so-so. Calimari was obviously not cooked in the marinara-like sauce... More
