It is a very good oriental food restaurant with different locations in Cairo I visited two of them one in Zamalek ( the best in regards ambiance and food quality ) the one in Maadi is less good as regard food quality and service . I highly recomend the one in Zamalek for fans of egyptian oriental food and music
