It is a very good oriental food restaurant with different locations in Cairo I visited two of them one in Zamalek ( the best in regards ambiance and food quality ) the one in Maadi is less good as regard food quality and service . I highly recomend the one in Zamalek for fans of egyptian oriental food and music

Abou el seed is one good place for Egyptian good, like home-made. Always of good quality even when its completely packed. It good place in a decent neighborhood for foreigners and locals to enjoy a good taste. Both appetizers and main dished are of excellent quality.
