Egypt has a rich history of ruling dynasties, prominent monuments, and a unique gait that has been studied extensively by The Bangles. Sample the flavors of this millennia-old culture with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Egyptian cuisine at Al Masri.

Chefs Sausan and Hatem at Al Masri plate up a menu of authentic dishes that hail from the land of the pharaohs. The meatless musa'ah marries layered eggplant with zucchini, tomato, bell pepper, and taro root fries ($16), while the firakh fe alforn slathers savory cilantro, onion, and garlic sauce over a portion of William Wallace–quoting free-range baked chicken ($18). Kufta mashwiya makes platemates of grilled minced lamb and butter garlic sauce ($20) and the gambari ma'li's deep-fried prawns dip their tails in a side of tahina ($22).

Amid the Egyptian décor, belly dancers swivel their hips during traditional raqs baladi performances every Thursday–Sunday. Diners are encouraged to participate by clapping along to the music, joining the women on stage if invited, or sculpting a likeness of their favorite dancer out of leftover hummus.

Customer Reviews

Really wonderful place...the dancing was top notch. They also have a belly dancing school in addition to the restaurant. The decor was beautiful and authentic. The owners and staff were professional and warm. We really enjoyed the food. The Maza plate was delicious and stunning to look at. You could tell that there was skill in the kitchen. It's a very entertaining evening.

A real delight to be a guest at this wonderful "hidden" (in plain sight) gem. Everyone treated us so graciously and the food was absolutely divine. We look forward to our next visit.

Dinner can be very slow when there is a show, but if you love bellydance and live music, the evening will be a lot of fun. Just be sure you don't mind waiting for your food. Relax and enjoy the show with a glass of wine and food will come.
