Service was prompt and the sandwiches were good. We took away three types of sandwiches (falafel, fried cheese and foul) served in pita bread. They gave a generous filling for the sandwiches. Would like to return to try out other things.

Gad is the best when it comes to fool or falfael sandwiches. They have other good things such as: french fries with mozzarella or friend cheese with mayo. It's a very cheap. I simply prefer the branches in Smouha or Mahtet elraml (down town)
