I had dinner here on one of the evenings I was in Cairo in Nov 2019. Fairly simple local place with a good selection of typical Middle Eastern food. I chose some shawarma, dips and some soup. Food was decent enough for the price.

Beautiful and original place with a nice cold Stella Beer, however the food is mediocre, our veal was over cooked accompanied by shredded raw carrots and sliced raw onions. The stuffed artichoke was undercooked and hard. Thankfully they didn’t find a way to mess up...More

Overpriced, and the waiter tried to shake us down for a bigger tip, since “the service fee is for the kitchen staff “. It’s got a charming atmosphere, but it seems like they are just churning out the grub for package tour groups. I had...More

A great place for lunch during a day walking about the city. A quiet hideaway that is welcoming to tourists. Very good food at reasonable prices.
