If you are in the mood for stuffed pigeon (hamam), this would b good place for it. Although a tad over-priced -- that is, relative to local, non-touristy places -- the place is reliably clean and the service is professional. We also sampled some excellent...More

Part of our tour included lunch at About Shakra, which we booked through Viator. The food wasn't bad, nor was it amazing, it was just ok. The best part of the restaurant was the view you have of the Sphinx and Pyramids.
