They have a platter, Al-Azar Mixed Grill, that has three different types of meats and it's delicious. I use the cucumber sauce to dip my grilled chicken. My sides were a salad and mixed rice. My salad was fresh, green, and crisp with peppers and onions. The rice contained raisins which I'm not use to but an interesting change. The ambiance is low-key and they music was a little loud, but we were the only couple there which is why it probably sounded that way to us. I would recommend this if your taste buds have an acquired Egyptian Platte.

My friend and I had a wonderful experience. Being our first time, we put ourselves in the hands of our server. She brought a wonderful mix of different dishes. There were too many to name, but all were delectable. I will definitely be back.

We went here my husband and I to try and dine somewhere different. We were seated right away. We received our drinks right away. However when we placed our order it was over 45mins. before the food came out! The plates were hot but the food was medium warm :( There really was not that many people in the restaurant for such a delay. The food was tasty but extremely slow. We had to ditch our plans for an evening movie b/c we never got finished with dinner until 9:30P!!!!

I was excited by the 5 star rating and having something a little different in Greensboro. I was apprehensive about the strip mall location, but trusted the food and atmosphere would live up to the rating.

We had the hummus and the baba ghanoush. The baba ghanoush was quite good, but the hummus was coarse and underseasoned. The pita was very floury and tasted like it had spend the day under a heat lamp. For the main course, we had the kofta and filet mignon kebabs and lamb. The meats were all fair at best. They were very plain, a bit overcooked, and generally lackluster.

The atmosphere was similarly lacking, having all the hallmarks of a former strip mall pizza place quickly converted to an Egyptian restaurant.

I probably won't be back.

Who would have thought Greensboro would have an Egyptian restaurant, and such a fine one at that? The koshari was just like what I enjoyed in Cairo. The fawl is absolutely delicious. And the falafel is the best I have ever had in my life -- anywhere. Will certainly go back next time we're in Greensboro.

The menu was appealing as the appetizers, salads, sides, and entrees all complimented each other.

The ability to mix and match different dishes made for a fun experience.

Quiet, delicious food and a very relaxed atmosphere. We went for Mother's Day and were one of the first groups in the restaurant. It seems like an undiscovered gem. I would recommend the 4 way app sampler with the fewl, hummus, baba ganhouj and the cucumber dip. They had a real variety of dishes that are very recognizable to those familiar with other Middle Eastern cuisines as well as some choices that are unique to Egyptian cuisine. I really enjoyed the beverages - can't remember the names - but the pomegranate/hibiscus drink was perfect. Not too sweet and very refreshing. They do not serve alcohol. This is another great example of the diversity available in the Greensboro food scene.

I took my wife here to try something different. I got the "lamb beef shawarma" and I'm not sure if there was any lamb in it. It tasted like small strips of fried, well-done round steak. It did not have much flavor. The soup was pretty good. The highlight of the night was the dessert - kunafa. It was amazing. The waitress was very nice and came to our table frequently. Maybe something else on the menu might be better, but I was pretty disappointed with the shawarma.

For the amount of food you get, no worth it. We ordered a Shish Kebob (lamb), and it came with 1 skewer of meat, a plateful of rice, and to me that is not worth $19.95. I expected the food to have lots of flavor, but was for the most part bland. The best thing we had was the hibiscus tea. We used a LivingSocial coupon for our dinner and still paid $35! For that much money I would expect to get a lot more food, and it to have more flavor. Very disappointed

We love Cleopatra's Restaurant. We have tried most of the items on the menu and haven't disliked anything. The pita bread is amazing! The wait staff are courteous and helpful. The portions are huge, so we usually get to take home something for the next day. We have also gotten delivery from Cleopatra's. i strongly recommend Cleopatra's! In fact, we're heading back tonight for dinner.
