“Local food in a nice setting”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This is a great place to get a taste of the local cuisine in a very cozy setting. Shisha is smoked at most tables and gives the whole place a very authentic feeling. Contrary to many Egyptian local food places this one serves alcohol and is also frequented by the local "in" crowd or just people that want a good meal.

“Enjoy traditional food and privacy.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

In an atmosphere of Cairo in the twenties of the last century, you can enjoy the traditional and genuine Egyptian food of good taste and quality. The place gives you a great sense of comfort and privacy. Enjoy.
