One of the foods I've come to love most are Egyptian fatirs (pies). This place makes them in a wide variety and they're good. And though I'm in Egypt and was reticent to order pizza, I couldn't resist one of the other reviews which said that the place had awesome pizza. I must in fact agree. Very good. Definitely worth...

I like the chicken shawerma and pies. They are excellent. The pizza is also good.however I dont fancy the spagetti from this restaurant. It is quite expensive to dine in as the service charge is unreasonable. But still I do take aways as the food there is so tasty.

The Taverna is a great restaurant offering very good egyptian pie - also the sweet ones are very good. We were there at about 7pm, it was not very crowded and we got a good table upstairs at the window - we can really recommend to sit there because you can watch them making the pizzas downstairs :) There is...

If you feel like some good-ol' cheesy pizza, Taverna is the place to go. It's very central (across from Midan Ramla), the staff is nice and the service is quick.
