“An oasis of perfection and reliability.Absolutely my favourite in Cairo.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I have lived and worked in Cairo for over 20 years and have visited most of the restaurants in town. This is the only restaurant in Cairo where I would take a large group of people and order a la carte. They always cope in a friendly professional manner. Thai owner and Thai chefs and wonderful intelligent waiters. My friends who visit from UK and USA always rave about the place. Well deserved reputation. Always guaranteed a great meal. Worth searching for. .....and the food is great too!

“Still the same - absolute quality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

I posted about one year before, and I visited frequently... And quality has not changed at all! Best TOM KHA GAI soup in town, best chicken curry... Do not miss the place in Maadi! It is worth even driving south from the city center. You can take the metro and will find the place easily. I simply LOVE IT!

“Great little place for Asian food in Maadi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Quaint little place in Maadi serving up some of the best Asian in town. What it lacks in decor and atmosphere it more than makes up for with amazing food. Try the crispy chicken, Thai red curry with sticky rice!

“A find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We were talking to friends who live in Cairo. They suggested a small place in Maadi called Bua Khao. It was wonderful Thai food despite being small and not easy to find. We tried six different dishes across our group and suggest the Curry and Pad Thai, which were authentic.
