A great place to go,,, they serve really good food, all Egyptian, feels like home and your grandma made lunch for you. The decor is also making the atmosphere super cool with the old furniture, floor, even the tableaux are just beautiful. In Ramadan they serve great food for Suhour, and their shisha is really good, you gotta try it!

Great for Vegetarians and carnivores alike, they offer a selection of mezzes which is great if you are in a group of friends. You can dine al fresco or inside. They also offer Shisha after your meal with a variety of different flavours. The portions are... More

this restaurant is offering traditional Egyptian food.it is a very tasty food and you feel that you are eating a typical home food. the ancient decoration and atmosphere with the photos of the Egyptian authors , artists and singer remind you with old time. all affiliates of this restaurants are offering the same food taste which is very delicious.

There are several Abou el Sid restaurants in Cairo. We visited the one in Maadi on Street 7th (between metro station Maadi and Sakanat al Maadi al Maadi). A bit difficult to find as no particular or visible sign from the street ; it is an hidden gem middle of other houses. We went for lunch and rather stayed outside... More
