Dinner on September 22 2015
Used to know this address when it was still called Dar Gdodnah, things have changed a lot since. The empty restaurant should have been a dead give-way as to why....
As soon as we were seated we were tiny dips, bread and 2 small bottled waters. The bread was unsalted, flavorless and soggy.
Now comes the time of the check and bad surprise that has left a bad taste in our mouths: the dips and bottled waters we thought were complementary 9as they were served without us ordering them0 were charged and at a hefty price (by local standards)
- EGP 12 for 2 SMALL bottled waters!
- tiny dips (olive oil, chili pepper and 5 green olives) were charged EGP 34!!!!!!! A total rip-off!!!
Of course we claimed the charge in arabic to the waiter (the red-head) since we hadn't asked for the drinks and dips and thought they were complementary. And he just said that it's customary to serve water and dips and since we ate some of it we had to pay! Then he left.
Worth noting that a couple (locals) sitting next to us were not served the 'customary' dips and drinks hence were not charged.
I don't recommend this place, service is very poor, food very average compared to Dar Gdodnah, prices VERY high for what you're served and they have no shame in scamming people, especially tourists.
As we were leaving we said goodbye and the manager just looked at us and did not even bother to respond. Talk about stellar service...
Beware of the menu: all in arabic and prices charged at the end are different than the ones indicated in the menus
