One of the best traditional egyptian food restaurant in Egypt. Visited the one in City Stars mall, very nice, food is good, prices reasonable and it is very clean, the best place to try the egyptian cuisine. Service is relatively fast, staff are friendly as most of egyptian are.

“Delicious oriental food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

All the traditional oriental food is very good there.
They have the most perfect FATTA (White rice over bread with tender meat and sautéed garlic).
Mombar (Guts stuffed with seasoned rice) a very traditional egyptian food with very delicious taste.
Rich oriental atmosphere with copper lanterns upholstery and colored glass.
The dimmed lights adds more to the taste of food.
Zamalek branch is good except it's always crowded and a little bit noisy.
Dandy Mall brach is bigger and kind of quite & cosy except for weekends.

“Very specialized Egyptian food restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

A very good restaurant for foreigners to taste & and get acquainted with real home-made Egyptian food & eastern kitchens.
A good variety of Egyptian tasty dishes as served on Egyptians' dining table, pretty high in price compared to local market but you will always get a worthy experience.
Staff are friendly & the atmospher is pleasant.
