The decor is worth the price of admission. The food is worth the money as well, but don't expect to be blown away. The chef/owner was extremely friendly and the wait staff was above average.

My wife and I have eaten here several times, but don't think we'll be going back. Wife is a strict vegetarian with other dietary restrictions so it is important for her food to be prepared as the server takes the order. On three consecutive occasions, the cauliflower appetizer was mistakenly replaced with calamari. The waitress explained that both have the... More

The chef clearly has great pride and skill in his craft.. Worth going to just to the decor if you're not into kebabs and such. Right off i-40 and worth stopping by if you're just passing through.

An authentic restaurant that takes you to Egypt with its decoration its music and the food. Chef Samir is hands on in the kitchen and on the floor. A small operation but with excellent food offerings despite some service delays!

My wife and I recently stopped by for lunch. It was about 1PM on a Thursday in August, 2016. The place was quite busy (20-25 people seated). We waited 3-4 minutes for someone to seat us, and finally the waitress who was in the back of the restaurant told us to sit anywhere. We seated ourselves and then waited another... More

My favorite place when visiting Greensboro. Excellent kebabs both chicken and beef and a great baba gounish. Ambiance is so so but the waitress make up for it with an ever beaming smile. Very reasonable prices.

My husband and I were visiting Greensboro and were intrigued by Egyptian fare. Due to the positive reviews we saw online, we decided to give it a try. This charming restaurant is nestled in a 'strip mall' facade. As we were walking up, I questioned whether I wanted to be adventurous for lunch, but once we were inside, my mind... More

We're in town every two years, and this has become a must-stop for us. Chef will great you and personally help you decide what you'd like. If you want a lot of really good food, this is it. My wife and I ate for around $30

I was with a large group from work and Chef Samir was very engaging! It felt as though he had invited us to his home for dinner. There were many dishes to use from and their choices of exotic teas were quite novel! Everything was delicious and the baklava reminded me of my Aunt's. I had the grilled shrimp with... More
