“some branches !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

it is very good local food and speedy delivery but surprisingly quality differs from branch to another, as elmarkazy branch ( near central bank alexandria ) is very good food with many varities and so is semouha but when u talk about miami branch it is very very very trrible experience i have ever had, almost all food delivered was thrown away for the very very bad quality and taste with no varities availble as other branches

it is Cairo's version of fast food, I found everything it to be nice, and very close to Tiba Midtown.

“My go-to place for solid street dishes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

For the simple yet delicious foods like a hummus dish, fool or ta3meya, this is the place to go. Just elbow your way through the crowds out front, and head up the stairs to the seating area. They've got a well-translated english menu with pictures, so you don't even need to brush up on your arabic to know what you want.
As a general rule, avoid salads in Egypt, but the bread here is freshly baked, if I recall, and the dishes were tasty and cheap. Nearly all of the clientele are Egyptian, so you don't get ripped off either. I hope this place is still around the next time I make it to Cairo.
(Also, I visited this place in spring 2007 and spring 2008, but trip advisor won't let me review from that far back. It stood out in my memory! Al mataam GAD!
