  View from The Nubian House Restaurant
by Court94403

This place is worth the view alone! Nubian House sits high above the First Cataract with views of Elephantine Island, The Mausoleum of the Aga Khan and The Nubian Village. Authentic Nubian Food is served here, along with the sounds of Nubian Music. They often have a buffet from 4pm to 6pm they call "Sunset Tea". Nubian House serves Cappuccino and Karkadie (Hibiscus Tea) hot or cold 4-5 L.E. (1.00 USD). To avoid not getting a table call ahead. You are also welcome to sit and have "Chai" (tea) and smoke "Shisha" (waterpipe), 4 L.E. and take in the view. There is also a small souvenir shop. The Nubian House Restaurant is a great place for taking sunset photographs. Don't forget to take your camera!

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Follow the road past the Nubia Museum (about 1 km). Turn right just past the development of upscale houses. Do not walk there are no side walks and could be a little dangerous!
