Why is Egyptian traffic the worst in the world?
Because it’s full of tooting car men!
OK, the jokes predate the pyramids but today’s Big Deal with Nur Egyptian restaurant is as fresh as the patter in a Cairo souk.
Friends & family night out
Nur Egyptian restaurant is an oasis in the heart of Glasgow and today’s Big Deal is a fantastic way to try it with a group of friends or family.
Decorated with shisha pipes, atmospheric candles and even a sarcophagus, Nur is a fun place for a night out.
And the food is mighty fine too.
Featuring delicious mezze or small sharing dishes; hearty main courses and lip-licking desserts, Egyptian food is a feast for the senses.
Recommended by The List Eating & Drinking Guide
Not that you have to take our word for it. The List Eating and Drinking Guide hit-listed Nur again this year saying ‘This is simply a great place to eat, where humble hummus and charcoal-grilled cuts are elevated to surprising heights.’

Egyptian food may not be as well known as, say, Lebanese cuisine. This has not stopped plenty of Glaswegian diners giving it a whirl at Nur. These comments were left by customers on the restaurant’s Facebook page:
‘Truly awesome food and great staff! Give it a go.’
‘Food is absolutely fantastic, great staff & service. Highly recommended :)’
TripAdvisor reviewers are just as impressed, rating the restaurant 4/5. This is what a recent diner had to say:
‘Another excellent outing to Nur. Fab food, friendly service, beautiful decor. This was our second trip to Nur and it was just as memorable as the first. Delicious good and lovely relaxing ambience.’
This Big Deal would make for a great night out with a group of friends or for a family celebration.
Belly dancing takes place on the last Saturday of each month. Just be careful with the belly dancing – it’s much easier attempt it before eating rather than after.
