“clean, good service, food just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

This restaurant appeared pretty clean (always important in Cairo) and the service was friendly. There were lots of patrons there for dinner, which I thought was a good sign. The food was decent, but it wasn't the best thai food I've ever had. The flavors didn't stand out and the food didn't seem to be as fresh as it should be for thai. It's a small restaurant and there was lots of smoking inside, which also deterred from my experience with the flavors of the food. I would go back, but it won't be on the top of my list. Recommend taking a taxi as parking in the area is difficult.

“Good Food - Good Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Very good Thai food and timely service. One does not have to wait for too too long before the food is served.
Service is average: good but nothing particular.
