Simple I went inside they were spraying all over the place to kill flies and maybe more as if they are in the desert . How can people eat or breath after using poison in the air and in the food. The place was much better before now you feel there is no management. The food was acreage but I... More

This place used to be the best place to offer authentic Egyptian food but have been going downhill for a good while now. I would not recommend it anymore as the food quality is really bad with the food being served always cold or re-heated. It's relatively expensive as well .

Good was amazing. More expensive than some but still a good deal for the quality and ambiance. The service started well but, got a little inattentive towards the end. Our shisha took so long to arrive we ended up cancelling it. Not easy to find but the locals in the area are more than willing to help you locate it.

Great food and friendly staff - though the waiters are a bit slow. Friendly cats. Sometimes other guests let their kids run round the place screaming,... More

I am writing about the Maadi branch of Abou El Sid. I'd walked by the restaurant several times without going in as it always looked dark, but one night my husband and I decided to give it a try. We were happily surprised. The décor is wonderful - like an old Egyptian home from the 19th century. Comfortable armchairs and... More

Nice place to hangout and eat. Decent food and reasonable price for visitors. Service was alright as well. We thought of going there again but picked some other place. Reserve first!
