“Center city location is very original”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Egyptian food. Go only to the downtown location - Hoda Shaarawy Street - all other locations are bust. Not worth the trip

“Authentic but overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

This has been for long one of the most tourist-friendly egyptian restaurant. You can have a better "foul & falafel" experience at a lower price elsewhere however! But great service.

“It used to be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

My last visit in Filfila was disaster. The food was barely average and overpriced. The service was reluctant and the waiters paid attention mainly to larger groups (we were just two persons). I have visited this place 5 or 6 times in last 10 years and I can say that the service is really deteriorating during each my visit.
