It is a grill house with Egyptian flavor. It presents variety of grilled foodstuffs and salads. It has a music band that plays famous Egyptian songs. Very nice place and excellent food quality

I had a great experience in this restaurant despite the very slow service, but the food was very tasty. we choosed an indoor table because it was very cold outside it's not recommended to visit during the winter season I am looking forward to visit again in other season to enjoy the outdoor view

Stunning location on the Nile, we were lucky enough to also be treated to some fireworks from a nearby wedding. The bread is astonishingly good, great service, the grilled meat delicious. Live music also. Can't comment on price as I was being entertained here but a great experience all round.
