Egyptian Food

This place is good place to have falafel, foul and egyptian pies. It's quick and cheap. If you're in downtown and want to eat on the go try this place.

Menu is only in Arabic so you know it is not catering to the visitors! The food was good and plentiful and the prices reasonable.

Grabbed a falafel sandwich very early in the morning. It was very tasty. Especially liked the spicy sauce and toasted pita.

I went with my husband who studied at AUC and speaks a little Arabic. He was able to order and thankfully because it is a wildly busy popular Egyptian fast food joint.

Sitting upstairs service can be a bit slow but the food like the Chicken Shawarma in Pancake and the fresh mint and lemon were brilliant, Very good value.

Egypt's equivalent to a fast food outlet but serving healthy Egyptian food that's fast and freshly made to order. As all things in Egypt, it's open til really late at night.
