We went to khan el khalili on our last night in cairo for dinner and shopping. You will find many restaurants and cafes check the menus of them all before you decide where would you eat.

All the things you can find in Khan Khalili are pretty amazing. Just the sellers are bit annoying. Pay quarter of the amount they ask and don't eat there, it's way too expensive.

One of best places to visit in Cairo. It's a traditional historical bazar consisting lots of shops selling handicrafts, jalabeya, silver ware, etc . There are many very small hotels in the vicinity. It's a very nice place for a walk and some shopping . You have to be very careful when buying things as you need to bargain and... More

We didn't enjoy our food that much, especially considering the price. The service was stiff and formal.

We stopped in for an early dinner before the sound and light show at the Pyramids. The serving staff was fantastic -- they accommodated our request for quick service, and lovingly described their dishes. The mezze -- a selection of appetizers such as stuffed grape leaves, hummus and so on -- was very good. This really would have been enough... More

Check out the Bazaar, very colorful and bustling with people and tourist. It can be overwhelming. But it is a must see while in Cairo. There's a lot of antiquities. Dress to blend with the crowd.
