The first Maison Thomas in Cairo and by far the best. The décor hasn't changed much since the day it opened . Pure 1920's. The food is great too especially the pizzas. Well worth a trip to Zamalek just to experience it for yourself (take a camera, Cairo isn't just about pyramids)

Look, my only comment on the place is that you come out smelling like pizza. But It's really worth it. The pizzas here are unbelievably tasty and good. Ingrediants are fresh and will blow your mind. Don't miss the chocolate caramel cake. This is one of the best deserts you'll ever taste. Take one with you as a take away to enjoy it on breakfast or something. Bottom line great pizza, great cake and you smell like pizza.

This restaurant in Zamalek is the first of a chain that has 13 branches across Egypt. I visited the restaurant in Maadi and the experience was not good. Food was ok but certainly not special. The restaurant is very small and is a narrow long strip. 50% of the restaurant area is an open kitchen and the remaining area is very small. They have configured with high tables so the seating is very uncomfortable (I guess this is deliberate to make sure customers do not keep the table for long).

For a quick take away bite this is a perfect place. A bakery serving sandwiches, wonderful Pizzas and drinks. The oldest branch is situated in Zamalek but it has a number of other branches, the newest is in Sheikh Zayed "Arkan outlet" where you can be seated and share the menu with another restaurant "char wood" offering grills.

Funny seafood Spanish rice (Paella de Marisco, menu says rice, squid, shrimp, fish).
No rice, they used couscous with yellow Egyptian-taste spices, a microscopic amount of fish and squid and no one single shrimp. It didn't taste bad, but it is so far from Paella that it is even funny, especially for what one pays. I called and they say they use Basmati rice, no sure that would be a good idea for Paella anyway, but mine was couscous. They did not know what to say and laughed. Yes it is funny, will order again if I want to have a laugh, no if I want to eat Paella.
The, again, funny thing, is that I do like other things they make.
