Fabulous food and the owner so attentive. We were late for our pick up and he insisted that the tameya should be... cooked fresh - implored me to wait 2-3 minutes and replaced the items. Walked me through all the dishes how to best eat them etc. So gracious - he wanted to be sure that we had the best experience possible for first time Egyptian food eaters. Whole experience was wonderful. Really lifts your spirits. Place was spotless food so very enjoyable price very reasonable. Excellent choices for vegans. Will be back..read more

I visited Papyrus in November and left with a very positive impression of the place. Despite initial concerns that I... wouldn't be full after a meal without meat, I was gladly proven wrong. The owner took the time to explain Egyptian food and describe each dish, and offered his own recommendations based on what I liked and importantly, whether I'd be dining in or taking it out. Everything I tried was delicious and I'd be happy to come back sometime.read more
