Was a bit hard to find as we were looking for the restaurant name, but suddenly realized that the board says Al Majlis. Don't expect a great decor, the ambiance is of a typical cafe. The food was great though. We ordered Hamas and pita bread and the portion was generous.. kebabs and falafel were great. A bit disappointed with... More

We had chicken tagine and some lamb rolls, it was very disappointing. This restaurant is overrated and quite expensive for the quality of the food. Quality of the products and cooking are just good. I wouldn't advise it to anyone.

Had the falafel wrap. Came with decent fries . Sauce was generic chilli sauce served in a olastic to-go container. Staff were around but didnt pay much to me- a solo diner. Was surprise by the taxes and service fee when i went to pay the bill..

Pretty cosy ambience at night. Lovely! Feels like a lil fine dining experience with a candle on the table. Staffs are friendly but fierce looking. However its closes a... More

It's like I went to a different restaurant to the other reviewers. Really? The food was as per the title and the service was not much better. For a place surrounded by lively bars, cool cafés and quirky shops, this was disappointing.

We came here hoping for good Egyptian fare and walked out feeling cheated. We ordered crispy fried bread in yoghurt, ful, and a meze of dips. The yoghurt dish was not bad, but the bread was very greasy and cooked a long time before we ordered it. The ful was OK, a little salty and thin, but not terrible. The... More

Ordered Mezze Platter and Foul & Falafel.All dips were from refrigerator and pita bread was also not fresh from oven.We are used to hot food and did not like much.Falafel was very good.Dips were also good in taste.Prices are bit on higher side.

The format is more like a cafe , like the name suggests, the food is quite good. Better than other middle Eastern restaurants in Singapore I've been to.

I really, really needed a falafel sandwich and Cafe le Caire delivered. It was a pleasure to dine on good food and enjoyed people watching while I ate. The service was very friendly and I'm looking forward to going back.

My spouse and I recently visited Cafe le Caire and had a nice experience. The service was fine when were there, and the food was mostly good, although not amazing. We enjoyed everything we had (hummus and foul, salad, falafel), but nothing blew us away. LIke others have noted, the location is very nice, smack in the middle of Arab... More
