Great Dive Bar!

Excellent watering hole to visit for late night drinks and a game of darts or pool. Can get pretty filled on a Thursday night, but worth a trip. They also have very good Korean food.

This place is basically a tiny little bar with a pool table, where you can get some cheap booze, have some peanuts at the bar, and waste some time shooting pool with a friend.

I have spent many evenings in San Marinos.You never know what will happen. Quiet evenings turn out loud when an unexpected crowd turn up. Food always tasty and drinks reasonably priced. Decor needs upgrading . It is part of the charm of the place .Go give it a try.

My wife and I moved to Egypt recently, and we've been to San Marino three times. Please don't let the appearance discourage you. The food is great, the service excellent, and the beer is very cold, a big plus at lunch in Maadi. We love the varied appetizers they bring out before the meal; the soups are excellent, and the...

If you like Asian food, then you are going to want to try this place. It is located in New Maadi, but don't judge a book by its cover. I have eaten here several times because it is only a five minute walk from my flat. I have never been disappointed with the service of the food. The staff is... More

Sweet and sour and spicy prawns or chicken is just what it says it is great if you like spicey.Choice of beer is limited but what they have is lovely and cold. Decor has not changed much in many many years but neither have the prices.... More

The owners are authentic Korean couple who has lived in Cairo for decades. The side dishes and salads that come out in the beginning are all homemade and made by hand. They also have a Chinese chef, so all their Chinese dishes taste great!!!! It has the extra little touch that makes it more than just regular Chinese (like Peking... More

If you are craving excellent Chinese and Korean, this is the place to go. I went twice in one month. Food is super and it is easy to find parking in that area. Don't get discouraged from the decor of the place, it could need a bit of a face lift, but it is very typical. Once you sit down... More
