It was like a dream. We enjoyed truly hearty meal here. For me it has the perfect balance of rich flavour and subtleness, served with the real spirit of hospitality. Loved the gentle taste of their Mulukhiyah soup. One of the best dining experiences.

We chose the modern tasting menu. Every dish was done with finesse and great balance of spice, brilliant cooking indeed.

Our favourite was the lamb and the parfait + Egyptian pannacotta. On top of the food, what made the evening truly special was the presence of Kasia, the amazing host + waitress. She is so passionate and knowledgeable. She exudes warmth and energy and made sure all the diners were tended to. It really makes a difference when staff are enthusiastic about the food and you can see she wanted every diner to have a great experience. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed the food and the company.

Food was excellent - I loved the mix of Egyptian and French cuisines. I highly recommend the molokheya and the bamia dishes.

More importantly though, the service was AMAZING because of Kasia. She was very sweet, went out of her way to put up balloons and decorations for my friend’s birthday, and even brought her a cake with candles. I don’t remember the last time I had such good service. Can’t thank her enough for how sweet she was!

In summary, the food was great, the service was even better, and I will definitely go back very soon.

Service was excellent-Kasha was delightful. The mullokheyya was very well done, as was the baked Bamia, and we enjoyed the fois gras (ethically grown), the fatta, and feta salad, and Mehalabeyya. Everything was lovely. Thank you for looking after us. 🙏🏼

Shortened menu as just opened up, but enough choice for a few visits, my ratatouille with halloumi, was wonderful, and the seabass in Egyptian spices was stunning. My husband has chicken livers for starter and okra and lamb for his mains, no complaints from him either. The front of house staff , was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.
Decor a bit stark, due to covid restrictions, but the lighting was wonderful.
Would definitely recommend and if back in the area would go back for koee

The restaurant is small but very well decorated and staff are very friendly. The food was presented very nicely and cooked to perfection. Some small changes in the way of cooking would make it the food more traditional Egyptian such as providing the traditional tomatoes and garlic sauce with the Fata. Perhaps also adding foul and Tamia (Egyptian favs beans and falafel) to the menu?

Delicious food, interesting choices. Complimentary mezze, delicious humus and baba ganoush. Staff knew their menu well. Good choice of wine. Very relaxed. Quiet, we were only people there, but only just reopened and impacted by tier 2 restrictions.
Do go and try it, a great evening out.

We went for a quiet dinner at Alexandrie just after Christmas. Overall mixed feelings. On the plus side, it is a very typical Egyptian restaurant and we felt the fool was genuinely different and fresh. Also the service was very attentive. On the negative, I would say that even with the OpenTable offer we got that day, the bill still came out pretty high given the kind of food and what we had. So worth a try...

Dined here on our last night of a 25 day European vacation. Though Egyption in name, that is only an influence. It is as much Mediterranean as Egyption. But the dinner was delightful, well spiced, and the lamb shank was the most tender of any I have had in 50 years of dining out. Marvelous service, nicely appointed modern decor and seating. Nearly a 5 star rating, but we are very stingy with those (only 3 or 4 in all our years). So by all means this heart of Kensington restaurant is a worthy choice and a fond memory.

Distinctive cuisine you rarely get to experience. Try the traditional Egyptian herb soup, the lamb shank, and the baked filo/dairy/almond dessert. Everything was tasty and we'll seasoned.

We had the tasting menu, accompanied by the wine selection. The quality of the food was excellent. Portion size as expected from fine dining. Decor and setting is very good, though we had the whole restaurant to ourselves. Mid week Egyptian maybe doesn't draw the crowd, but it should. The lamb was exquisite. Not a cheap meal, but great food and something slightly different.

The food was good with the exception of an incident that spoilt the afternoon for me. I am aware that a service charge is never mandatory and as per the website and the menu this stated very clearly that a discretionary 12.5% surcharge would be applied. I do not want to pay this, nor should this be forced upon me. This is not enshrined in law and current discussions with parliament are in place to stop restaurants from insisting and simply adding on an extra charge on top of the meal. All food industry are obligated to pay their workers either a living wage or a minimum wage. I was disappointed when I requested for the charge to be taken off my bill. The excuse being made was that this was on the till and could not be removed. For Alexandrie Restaurant to act with mendacity, attempt to force me to pay a charge that is not legal upset me greatly and based on this issue I will never go back and eat there. I did not go to enjoy lunch to engage in an altercation and embarrass myself and quests. This issue could have been settled promptly. It is an absolute disgrace to assume that customers have no rights. In America it is customary to tip your service provider and employees are reliant on this to boost their wages. In the UK this is not legally binding and not required. Employers must pay their employees either a living wage or minimum wages. Currently the government is consultation with the hospitality industry regarding service charge, tips etc. Common practice is that this is optional and the money belongs to the business who can use this as they see fit. This is an additional charge to food that you are paying for. Not acceptable at all as a cash tip given to the server can be kept by the server whilst the service charge means you have pad for the meal and giving the business a mandatory unlawful charges that customers neither understand nor question. I will be writing to my MP to complain and further ensure that this tradition is stopped. Utter shock and upset.
