If you are in Aswan, you have to stop by and enjoy the most delicious food here. I don't think the address listed is correct. If you ask any one in the area, they will give you direction. Walking distance from Movenpeck Hotel.

The food is very good. It is like the home made food. The place is a little bit small with no view at all.

this is a well known restaurant in Aswan that can be easily reached, it is visited by both Egyptians and foreigners, it serves authentic Egyptian food in a very good quality with good prices. I personally recommend meat specialties specially lamb.

We found this restaurant in the lonely planet Egypt book and it would be a shame for people to miss out on it, because it isn't listed on tripadvisor.
