I always go to abou el sid whenever I am in Cairo, Sometimes more than once, the food is tasty and I love the idea of having Egyptian beer and shisha while enjoying the Arabic music in such an authentic surrounding.. Unfortunately the place recently lost its charm! It is becoming like any other place that serves Egyptian food, and they are becoming many in Cairo with such concept..they need to stay on top with the quality or food and service.

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.
