5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Very good food, very good Bloody Mary.
Music is like Soho on london which is not a bad thing.
Get yourself down there

“Outstanding place. Odd not many people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We have eaten at this place twice over the past week. On the first time we were the only people in the place. Last time there was around 20 of us.

The food has been outstanding and very easily the best in Cairo.
The staff have been very helpful and never seemed pushy.

The cost of the food is very well priced. The Bloody Mary was stunning.

The music is quite like a gay bar in soho which we enjoyed.

“Hostile staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Well there was a time where that place was quite nice actually, nice music, food and atmosphere! Even once a week there is a belly dancer that attends as a special guests and just blends in with the crowd! Nevertheless I've visited the place a month ago and it just lost it touch, despite the fact that the place being almost empty on a tuesday, the staff was very rude while taking our orders it felt like they couldn't be bothered of our impression on them! I also had an argument with the manager that day that just implicated that customer satisfaction isn't one of their targets any more. Wouldn't recommend to anyone...
