Today for breakfast i ordered 3 simple sandwiches online It took 15 mins for my order to be accepted then someone called saying they’re out of bread and its going to take 30 minutes to start making my order i said yes and after 50...minutes i called again and they said sorry its still not ready i waited and then after 75 mins and 2 calls i had my order. While opening it i found out they gave me a wrong sandwich I immediately called and was told the right one will be sent straight away and i was also told to keep the other “wrong” sandwich aside so they can take it?? Which makes absolutely no sense that during a pandemic I return food that i had opened and have someone else take!! Unacceptable and honestly creates a horrible chain of thought thinking about how my food had been prepped. Please keep in my mind i live 7 mins away from that branch. 30 mins later i call and they tell me yes we are prepping it! Honestly its a falafel sandwich it does not need all this time. However it was delievered to me after 60 mins!!! Since already breakfast has been ruined i did not open it because i never expected it to be wrong. However upon opening it they had sent a completely different order AGAIN!!!! i called the poor customer service and no one even had the audacity to call and apologize or even offer any compensation! Such a poor unprofessional behavior from a company that spends all its money on advertising its amazing customer experience! SHAME DO NOT ORDERMore

Food was good and service was fast. Tight on seating but that's generally a good sign. Be prepared to deal with a few beggars on the sidewalk as they know this is a busy area. Prices were slightly high for the amount of food. Left...satisfied but not full... and be aware, 12% service charge and 14% VAT is added to menu prices.More

This is not really a restaurant with formal seating, just a long table in the middle for sharing. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the menu is short and the food fresh. They also do a brisk takeaway trade. If you are considering this option,...I suggest also trying Sag a few metres up the road where they do incredible Shawarma for about 1-2GBP.More

A small dining room with a communal table that makes the ambiance of the place something special. Food was very good and the place was friendly for foreigners.

Fantastic place for a traditional Egyptian breakfast.. Reasonable price ”higher than normal though avg $ 7 per person, you have to try the ”Fool escandarani”, and the delicious Taamia, the place is clean the only bad thing in Zamalik branch is the seating as it's...only one big table with 16 chairs where you have to share with others .More

Loved loved zooba! Recommended by a local, this place was really unassuming! The kothari and the meat sandwich was really great!! Felt authentic and while it was super cheap, the quality of food didn’t feel compromised! Loved it!

The fact that Zooba was packed with locals at a non peak hour was validation enough about the goodness of its food. The service is rapid, the food is good and the prices are affordable. Recommended.

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
