We went there with our friends, it was amazing atmosphere with Arabian theme. You will have the best shisha and drinks with perfect service. Not advised for kids cause of the smoke and the band is good not perfect.

The most relaxing spot in the busy streets of old Cairo. Once you get inside you'll forget whatever traffic/people outside of its walls. I love it there!

this house still has loads of beauty and is worth seeing. It is dusty and time has taken its toll, but still a good example of Islamic architecture.
