This place has a good food but I think its over rated..falafel is good but its not the best as its rated. And the service is slow..it takes very long time to have our order👎🏻

The place was recommended I’m not just one, but many Cairo must-eat lists. The place lives upto the expectation definitely on food quality and taste. We went with a lot of the waiters reco since we weren’t too familiar with the cuisine. It’s a great...place for your “intro to Egyptian cuisine”. It’s a great place to grab a quick bite! Mind you, the place is a small hole in the wall sort of place with one long table and a few high chairs facing the wall. With less seating availability, it always remains full. The only thing I found annoying is the few flies. Didn’t expect that since it was a closed restaurant. P.S this was our first meal in Cairo. After eating at a few other local food restaurants, I would say this is best food, period. (apart from being best value too)More

Tasty and high quality food. I enjoyed the meal, the place could use a bit of extra space it’s a bit tiny!

I had breakfast with my friends in this local Egyptian food restaurant, the service was good, the food was delicious, and the cost was reasonable, but the seating area was very limited.

Good local food, not expensive, the restaurant environment isn't the best. For a casual meal, it's a very good option.

Zooba was the best place I ate in Egypt. Everything I tried on the two occasions I visited was incredible. I really recommend the Hawawshi. Defo worth a try if you're visiting and want great Egyptian food!

Surprisingly Nice! Never expected something called Zooba in Cairo to be of any significance. Fresh, clean, delicious and very nice setup. I have no criticism. I would visit again.

Was really excited to try here - it kept popping up in blogs and as a good restaurant to visit. The falafel sandwiches really weren’t very good. Minimal taste - was glad I got the pickled lemon one because there was at least some flavour....One was cold too. Disappointing!More

The food here is pretty good, but they need to be more honest about the waiting time. They tell each new customer their order will be around 10 minutes. We waited around 30. Just be honest with people, and if they want the food, they'll...wait – but without the frustration of being lied to.More

This little restaurant has Egyptian street food but served in a cozy space. The portions are good, so don’t be ambicious while ordering. The shrimp rice is good.

First time I try their Falafel sandwich, it was very delicious. The only problem is that the place is very small and it's always crowded, you need to go out of meals hours to avoid thd crowd or to take away the meal.

The food was amazing and the service as well. Zööba is serving traditional food and it’s definitely worth a visit.

We stopped in here for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. There isn’t a lot of seating inside, however we were eating early and had no wait. We got three different sandwiches and they were all delicious. I also highly recommend trying the mint limeade.

Zooba doesn't serve any alcoholic beverages so for a good plate of Koshary and perhaps a salad or a sandwich with some fresh juice and some dessert, you can go up to 80 or 90 including service and taxes. I would recommend... More
