Best for take-away/street food (there's really nothing special about sitting in), Gad does the very best in hot, greasy, fresh delicious Egyptian classics such as koshary, ta3meya sandwiches, lentil soup and shawerma. There is NOTHING healthy about eating here, but it really is reliably delicious. I recommend a chicken shawerma in Syrian bread. Great for tourists on the run in a hectic trip Downtown; far higher quality alternative if you have the McDonald's urge.

My wife & I were told about this great restaurant by our guide and really enjoyed it !!! They offer a nice variety of different foods and the service was very good. We decided to try the seafood & vegatable pizzas and were pleasantly surprised . The prices were low and fit right into our budget. We would eat here again and plan to tell our friends !!!

Egyptian friends brought us here so that we could sample a variety of Egyptian favorites - it was Fantastic! It's a classic Cairo "cheap, good lunch/dinner" restaurant, filled with locals and no tourists at all - except us. We LOVED the Hot bread, literally right out of the oven, baked on-site (!!), the hummus (!!), the ful, flafel (awesome), and the kebob (!).
the fresh Mango juice (100% mango in a glass) was fantastic.
The rice pudding was the only disappointment - fairly bland, but creamy and still "not bad".
For the price, this place was awesome.

Looking for a quick and super-cheap bite of authentic Egyptian fast food (pita with ful (fava beans) or ta3maya (Egyptian-style falafel), koshari (Egyptian macaroni), etc.)? This is the place. More local-oriented than even Mo'men and cheaper, but still decent fare, especially for the price. It's relatively clean, but you are not super-adventurous as a traveler (have never been east or south of Europe or left the U.S./Canada, I recommend you try Mo'men first.
