The food is not clean and the restaurant is hot no AC, and the service was not good. Am sorry my first and last time
Unfortunately every time I've attempted to order delivery(and the website states they are open and allows me to purchase items for delivery), they are closed.
Food prices are not on th menu.
great food for an even better price
Delicious and a real Egyptian experience! Best grape leaves of my life! Crunchy falafel! Go there!
My sister and I got the meatballs, grape leaves, baklava, and walnut cookies and everything was amazing! Definitely will be going back.
We ate at their stand during the Saturday farmers market downtown Appleton. We loved the gollash because it had great texture and flavor. The koftah had good flavor too but was a bit dry. I'll get it in the burger form instead of on rice next time. Fabulous falafel. Very friendly and helpful staff.
I wholeheartedly suggest this place! Please have patience and a lot of time in your pocket when coming to eat here. I promise it's worth it. He's usually open after 3! If you're short on time, I suggest you at the very least take some amazing homemade baklava home and, if you're in luck, maybe some basbousa (similar texture to a chewy granola bar, but made with semolina and honey) and bold Turkish coffee.
I saw the food truck for the first time at the Night Market in Green Bay (they've had 11 years of markets!) and eventually found the restaurant in Appleton.
I discovered that Mr. Ezz, the owner, is the sole worker in the restaurant, and does everything -the cooking, cleaning, errand-running, attending the customers and waiting on them- himself. He is also one of the sweetest and attentive people I've met, and is passionate about sharing his culture and food with people.
The food tastes so beautifully homemade and flavorful. While we waited, Mr. Ezz brought us some babaganoush -similar to hummus, but made with roasted eggplant instead of chickpeas-, and it was AMAZING. We also tried goullash -a filo dough stuffed with meat and spices-, meatballs in tomato sauce, and salmon in Egyptian spices accompanied with Egyptian seafood rice. Of course, we took some Turkish coffee and basbousa that he had just pulled out of the oven home (you're supposed to eat it when it's cooled, but I like it slightly warm!) Truly a work of love. Mr. Ezz also came over and told us a little about the meal we were having. He is very proud of his cooking.
Please give this amazing place a try and come in with an open mind. It might be a little bit of a wait, but it's very much worth it!
