I had its foul before and it was one of the best meals I've had in my life. As I returned I saw that the quality didn't deteriorate with time and it was still excellent. Try the eggs too.

The place is not attractive, poor decoration and low quality food, it is closed for visitors, you can find local food at Gad restaurant as it has better services and quality food.

"FOUL" Fava bean is Egypt's typical breakfast or lunch dish, in Mohamed Ahmed restaurant it on top of the food chain (literally). Very welcoming, fast service a good variety of Foul and other vegetarian dishes moderately priced with quality in mind. I wished other so called 5 Star restaurants fallow their lead. Egyptian healthy fast food at it;s best!

Although this place is very famous it is not the best choice for this type of food. It's more a tradition to go there! Positives: - Very cheap Negatives: - Very grassy food and usually not fresh - Staff is careless - No available parking around

When I read the reviews I expected the best breakfast ever. But when I went to the place I was truly disappointed. The food isn't clean & tastes weird. I'm someone who knows Egyptian food & this place simply doesn't deliver what the reviewers raved about. Honestly, only the eggs were good.
