Kebdet El Prince

Don’t be put off by the endless photographs of the owner in and around the restaurant. El Prince serves traditional and authentic Egyptian and Middle-Eastern food.

It seems ridiculous, but we suggest that you arrive a good two hours before the fetar to guarantee a spot. It gets so packed in fact, that a queue usually builds up outside, as people wait for empty tables. For more information, call 0237109292 or 0233116265.
