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 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
