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.

If you are in Aswan and if you like the Oriental food , don't miss this restaurant It is located in the city very close to the Souq so you can have a walk after the meal or even you can walk by the Nile as it is close also from the restaurant

I ate at this restaurant 2 times while in Aswan. Both meals were very good. Service was prompt and friendly. The lamb chops were excellent.

The menu is small but they nail it. You order the meat which is everything from pigeon to shish tawook and it comes with soup, salads, vegetables and bread. Our two meals were very nice here and prompt efficient service. Price was great too. Recommend.

Went here two days in a row for lunch while we were visiting Aswan. Great food and service - we ordered a couple of meat dishes on both days. Dishes were served with a green salad, bread, hummus, soup, beans and vegetables. A huge amount of food! All of it was tasty and fresh, and only 180LE, including drinks. Definitely... More

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.

If you like Egyptian food you should eat at El Masry. Food and drinks are inexpensive, food is fresh and quality is good.

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.
