The menu and experience were exactly as described in the offering. I appreciated the place cards, music, and film that Ahmed and Sarah employed to enhance the room's atmosphere. All of the food was delicious, and I definitely got my money's worth. Ahmed and Sarah are new hosts, but they seemed like very experienced ones. They planned and executed a very enjoyable evening. The three other guests contributed positively too!

We had an excellent time dining with Sarah and Ahmed! They put a lot of thought into not only the food, but the whole atmosphere and structure of the dinner. All the food was delicious, generously apportioned, and served with thoughtful plating and description of the ingredients and cultural context. It was a nice mix of casual free-flowing conversation with the small group, and interesting history / background tying into the regional theme. Ahmed has a contagious enthusiasm and is great at explaining things in a generous and not overly-didactic way. We left satisfied from food, learning, and good company!

Really enjoyed my first ever EatWith dinner with Ahmed & Sarah. A great deal of preparation sent into cooking all the food.... and there was a lot of great food: appetizers, main, sweet treats and traditional tea + rosewater. What makes the experience special is Ahmed's passion for sharing the cultural context of Egytian cooking. Moreover, there was Egytian music in the background which all added to the ambience. I was one of four other guests; after introductions, conversations flowed freely. So that blend of great food and conviviality all made for an excellent evening. Highly recommended!

Ahmed and his partner were really thoughtful and detailed through and through. This was a last minute booking as a birthday dinner for my partner. I appreciated Ahmed's flexibility in making this surprise dinner come to fruition. Food, beverage, desserts, video and even down to the background music were on theme. Having Ahmed to share with us the history as we dine was the cherry on top. If you're looking for a delicious and educational evening with very chill vibes, dining at Ahmed's is exactly spot on.
