Unique Egyptian Dining

Very nice restaurant, elegantly decorated with a staff eager to please. Unfortunately we were the only people to dine at the restaurant that evening other than one individual who came in as we were leaving Get the Pidgeon, the delicacy of Egypt.

Really lovely place to be when you're in Cairo! The Khan el Khalili market in a bumbling and bustling part of the city where a stroll through the streets takes you to the heart of Egypt. Souvenirs galore as well as the sights and smells you find in this marketplace are an experience best cherished as you walk through the... More

There is nothing special about this restaurant in Mena House Hotel. Traditional Egyptian food but not cooked nicely. There are now many restaurants offering Egyptian food with higher standards in terms of quality and taste

I went twoce, daytime and again at night. During the day the pace seemed slow, somewhat 'not fully open for business' but managed to get some bargains. When I went at night, the place came to life... lights, music, more shops open (which can also mean more hassle) so learn the words "LA SHOCKRUN" means no thank you or "BE... More

Our travel agent booked a lunch for us here and what a treat it was! First of you can not beat the location nor atmosphere! We had a table right by the window with a view of the great pyramid. An added bonus is the decor and furnishings! Located in an elegant hotel they exude luxury and opulence. The service... More

We came here after a very dusty day touring the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx during a sandstorm. What a respite to come to this luxurious restaurant, located inside a resplendent historic hotel. We had a three-course lunch at 3 pm, which was just what we needed after a big, indulgent breakfast at our hotel and a long day of... More

This is the casual restaurant in the Mena House, where the breakfast buffet is set up. Right out the window is the Great Pyramid of Khufu. Breakfast buffet has everything from cereal and eggs to traditional Egyptian fuul (beans). Do not miss the lentil soup at lunch or dinner!
