“Overpriced and lousy food.”
An Egyptian friend recommended this restaurant and we both visited for dinner. The decor was not truly Egyptian but I guess you have to overdo it to attract passing traffic. My friend did the ordering and I simply agreed with his selection, even though I was paying the bill. We were told that th...ere was Belly dancing in the evenings. Not really interested in seeing bellybuttons but if its included..... That evening the belly dancing or the belly dancer was coming late as she had to go to some other restaurant. My friend told me that previously there was Russian girl performing and she attracted a lot of attention from the Japanese diners. Back to the food. Food was bland, very bland. I was looking for Ketchup or even mustard to make the food palatable. The portions were tiny and the presentation was below mediocre. Service was on the rough side, probably Egyptian style and we were charged for everything. The only thing free was the toilet paper and the flushing of the toilet. But I may be mistaken. Perhaps they sneaked that in too. They advertise "Do you want to be a Pharaoh, Sultan or King for the night?" Exactly right, you need to be one of these with bags of money to pay for the lousy meal.

I would never recommend this place to anyone let alone an enemy. The owner was very disrespectful and deceiving trying to screw us with his outrageous prices.

The restaurant was recommended by friend. We had a truly amazing dining experience. Fujimori san and wife Noliko san took great care of us (seats only 8) and the quality of the sushi was first class!

“STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.”
My friend and I wanted to try something new and decided to try this place. We made a reservation in advance since we before heard that they only let those with reservation in. Anyways, we sat down at the table and the lady brought us a menu. She exactly said like this: "Since you came here with a r...eservation, both of you must choose each dish from menu A and B." Excuse me? What does it have to do with the reservation!? She literally forced us to order 4 dishes and plus BEFORE the meal. Unbelievable. During our meal, we got thirsty so we simply ordered some water. If you live in Japan/ have been to restaurants in Japan, tap water is usually served for free. When we saw our bill, we found they charged us for a bottled water. (¥1000 for two of us) The total was around ¥10000 for unsavory food. They didn't even taste good. We could definitely have had nicer Egyptian meal with that money and this restaurant totally made us feel WORST. So please, stay away from this restaurant. Never go there.

“Food was OK but over priced.”
meal - ate with 2 other friends - the menu encourages you to order the set course to avoid paying an unavoidable fee for the belly dancer (one belly dancer). - everything tasted okay but nothing special, mediocre - if you order water, they will bring you expensive mineral bottled water. (500 yen eac...h) atmosphere - a projector with a weird movie playing... - cheap "Egyptian" merchandise everywhere (for the customers to buy) - 2 of the employees were smoking hookah - PS this is also a hookah bar for people who wish to dine smoke/vapor free service - our waiter was actually VERY NICE - when he saw that one of us was unsatisfied with the soup, he immediately offered to replace it with a different soup. - I also accidentally left my credit card. He chased us down the road to return it. - If the other employees were not smoking hookah, service would have definitely gotten a solid 5 rating.
