GAD-restaurants in El Mamsha Hurghada Egypt is easy to access.
GAD-restaurants in El Mamsha Hurghada Egypt.

GAD offers oriental Egyptian food with a western twist. They have lots of traditional Egyptian dishes on the menu, but they also Pizza and Burgers. If you are not sure if you like Egyptian food dishes take a cheeseburger and have some Egyptian food aside. Prices in GAD are very reasonable. Soups from 10 Egyptian pounds (le.) to cheeseburger 25 le.



I don’t go to GAD often myself anymore, but when I go I take the same menu every time. To be honest I have eaten myself out from GAD, too much GAD food I mean. I have tried lots of foods there and drawn up a perfect menu for myself.

My menu includes Lentil soup (my favourite), Falafells, mashed potatoes and baba ganoush. Baba ganoush is a paste made from eggplants, tahini (sesame seed paste, garlic, lemon & sat). And it’s very good. Here is a picture of my menu from last week, without baba ganoush.

For me, it tastes and looks good. And the price is not bad at all. All this with water costs about 40 Egyptian pounds (le.). It is about 1,8£, 2€ and 2,2$. And believe me, you will be full after eating all the falafels. They are crunchy, oily and tastes excellent. I highly recommend this combo for everyone who likes lentil soup, falafels and mashed potatoes. Including myself.

Like I wrote earlier there are lots of dishes were to choose from in GAD. If you go with a bigger group, I’m sure everyone will find something to eat. Anything from Pigeon to Crepes.

GAD has also non-smoking areas, so it’s suitable for families and non-smokers.

Kids will love GAD, especially after they notice that they offer Nutella crepes there (soooo sweet). If you are travelling with small kids, strollers or disabled persons, I recommend you to choose the GAD in Mamsha. Restaurant locates on the ground floor, which makes it easiest to access.

Enjoy your meal at the GAD restaurants.
