Restaurant was inadequate/ slow/ not focused- as if they were expecting someone “ important” and you are just there to quickly manage until that someone finally appears. Food : well certainly not a value for moneys spent to put it mildly. The Cafeteria was much...more interesting with live music and lovely decor. Hard to find in the first place. Please do visit and enjoy the cafeteria,More
Dinner here was included in our tour of the old Cairo Bazaar. The food was good and the service was very good. I would say that this was a very touristy destination. We arrived relatively early, but by the time we left, it was getting...crowded with tourists.More
So the restaurant is right in the bazaar and it is nicely fitted inside. The service is amazing and the food is prepared fresh this takes some time to come to you. The food itself was all delicious. Lentil soup, chicken shawarma and grilled beef...and shish tawouk.
The most amazing kunafa “othmanliya”…. Ended up ordering two!!!
Excellent place for dinner, not too pricey and shopping right after.
Lastly, the most honest people I ever encountered. I left my bag in the restaurant, it had my US cash, passports and basically my whole life in it. 15 mins after I left and was shopping just around the corner, I got texts and calls from my hotel telling me about my bag. The owner and manager found my hotel details in my bag, cause I print copies of important stuff like that, and contacted me about my bag. I immediately went back and checked all my things and everything was there. There were very nice and honest and very good Muslim people. The honesty that should be exemplary in all Muslims and all humanity in general. But thank god for these people, I got all my stuff back and it was a big relief!!!More
We stopped for a coffee break in this traditional venue.
It is located in the middle of khan Khalil bazaar.
It is a little dated but could be a dinner stop if to be combined with khan Khalil sightseeing.
My friend and I found this place because it often comes up in top places to eat near Khan el Khalil Bazaar. Definitely a tourist spot with higher prices than other Egyptian restaurants. The food is pretty good — nothing spectacular but not bad either....It is a nice escape from the hectic nature of the bazaar and people haggling you to buy things. Workers are super nice and it’s the only place I’ve been in Egypt where the workers are actually properly wearing masks (didn’t even see that at top hotels). We ordered the falafel, koshary, and mix grill meat plate. The koshary is a sort of “do it yourself” thing but pretty good. Falafel is ok and the mix grill plate was pretty good. The rice that came with mix grill plate was really good too. I ordered the guava juice and it was DIVINE. Almost good enough for me to want to give this place another star, but I would say it’s overall average. Good but nothing to brag about. The restaurant has signs posted that you must spend 250 Egyptian pounds per person but I’m not sure they enforce that (with drinks we easily were able to get to 500 Egyptian pounds). They do take card which is nice!More
I was here today, and enjoyed it. I ordered from a different menu as I wanted roasted chicken and plain rice. I had plain black tea served with mint in a glass. There were a few extra charges for taxes and service, best to ask...the total price up front if need be. It really was a nice oasis in the midst of the chaos. All wait staff wear masks, take your temp when first entering, bathroom was immaculate. This place is owned by the world famous Oberoi Hotel Group. They are nice as well.More
Great cafe and restaurant hidden in the streets of Khan Khalili market! The food was great, the services amazing, the staff very kind and helful. The environment is tranfering you to the heart of Cairo and the musicians make you feel like home! Great live...music show to accompany your food or tea! All the covid measures were followed. Highly recommend!More
A previous reviewer spoke of who this place is evocative of the 19th century and I think that is a perfect and beautiful description. Stepping into this place from the chaos and whirl of Khan al Khalili is like stepping back into time while you...have arrived at the Ottoman meets Art Nuevo. Lovely selection of Egyptian dishes served by friendly wait staff in traditional clothing, you will be brushing up against other patrons and everything you might have hoped to find in Egypt here.More
If you are a fan of lebanese/arabian food and music then this is a must visit. You don't need to be a fan of the celebrated author to appreciate the liveliness of this place -it's not a frequented place by Naguib Mehfouz but Oberoi pays...more than a tribute to the legend by its supremely delicious food matched equally by its musicians. This place will make your trip to Cairo memorable!More

My wife and I had full lunch - a main course each, salad and a drink (non-alcoholic) each for about 400 LE, all taxes included. This would give you a fair idea. I would say that 800 LE is a safe bet for 4 people. Regards.
