Have a wonderful night in São Paulo, tasting a egypcian food and exotic dancing. It´s not original like the first one in Cairo, but they work hard to please you. Casual clothes are recomended!

You can have a great time by watching the dancers. At the other hand all they do is to feed you with tons of bread when you get there so that you feel you had enough by the time the good stuff starts coming out so be alert for that.

The presentations are very unique, adds a lot to the place. Food is exotic and nice too. If only they cleaned the bathroom better, it would be perfect. Can't wait to check out their arguile room.

I love it! I go there whenever I can. It's a tea house and you get to see the best brazilian belly dancer if you are lucky! Lulu Sabongi.
