    Ordered and had the patience to wait an hour and received no food, while the tables around us who arrived later received theirs. Asked wait staff twice during that hour if our food would be arriving, and were told they would check, but received no follow up.

    Maybe it’s a cultural thing, but I find it hard to go to dinner and part of the restaurants offering is shisha/hookah pipes for people to smoke, while others try and enjoy a meal. For this reason we chose to dine inside, which was a pity because it was such a beautiful Melbourne autumn evening, and outside dining would of been great. With current staffing issues in hospitality, I am a little lenient on the service times at the moment. The little staff that were on hand were as prompt as possible considering. Food was excellent. The only thing that would prevent me from coming again is the smoking, but that is a personal thing and not a reflection on the restaurant and their hospitality.

    What an amazing find!! The food was delicious, can't go wrong with the beef liver entree and charcoal grill for two. Our first taste of Egyptian food and will be back again. A huge shout out to Rehan, and the other two staff (their names escape me) that looked after us. They were all so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We will be back for more food and dessert!!!

    Staff were so welcoming and helpful. Food was really delicious and the servings quite large. The banquet for 2 people could feed a family of 4.

    The food was outstanding and unique in comparison to other middle eastern restaurants. I tried new dish of beef kidney and loved it. I like their authenticity in menu selection.

    The food was amazing, and the koshari was so delicious! However, the service was terrible. We booked a table for 9.30pm and when we arrived we had to wait for 20 minutes as there were no tables available. We were then seated at a dirty table, and had to wait a while before it was cleaned and we were given menus. No one cleared our table, no one came to ask for a drinks or dessert order. It seemed really understaffed for a busy Saturday night. But the food was good!
