"Al-Masri is more than a restaurant; it is an experience, providing their curious patrons with the most authentic live Arabic music, belly dancing and cuisine short of actually going to Egypt." --Gene Burns, Dining Around

"Al-Masri menu gives a vivid sense of peoples and movements that have swept across the Nile delta over the centuries. Al-Masri means to be something more than simply another ethnic restaurant." --Paul Reidinger

"We weren't quite prepared to be as completely swept away as we were by Al-Masri. Al-Masri meals were a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. We may not have physically left town, but Al-Masri certainly helped us make an imaginary escape." --Amanda Berne, San Francisco Chronicle

"What to do when you want a night out but don't want to rush your meal to get to your entertainment? Want an experience tinged with the exotic? Want free parking? Sensual dancers? An attentive staff that goes out of its way to make sure you're happy? It's all at Al-Masri and it's very Egyptian, from the succulent morsels they'll place on your table to the well-trained belly dancerws schooled by the restaruant.... The Bottom Line - Al-Masri Gets All My Stars." -- Martha Bakerjian

"Owner Hatem 'Pasha' has created his own fantasy Egyptian courtyard. In it, gorgeous, world-class belly dancers entertain smart people feasting on succulent lamb, grilled quail, roasted game hen, and marinated seasonal fish. Share hummus, falafel, tahini, and stuffed grape leaves while the proud proprietor regales with tales of Egyptian culture, his royal lineage, and the murals he has painted throughout." --The Best in the Bay Area Dining
