“Clean, fresh, tasty Korean & Chinese cuisine!!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The owners are authentic Korean couple who has lived in Cairo for decades. The side dishes and salads that come out in the beginning are all homemade and made by hand.

They also have a Chinese chef, so all their Chinese dishes taste great!!!! It has the extra little touch that makes it more than just regular Chinese (like Peking chain in Cairo); but real tasty Chinese food.

The place is a little small and cramped, but the service is great!!!

“Treasure”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

If you are craving excellent Chinese and Korean, this is the place to go. I went twice in one month. Food is super and it is easy to find parking in that area. Don't get discouraged from the decor of the place, it could need a bit of a face lift, but it is very typical. Once you sit down the excellent greeting, service and the food will make you warm up to the ambience.

The restaurant uses prime fresh ingredients and It serves alcoholic beverages.
My favorite dish is Sweet, Sour and Hot Shrimps (it is the not the usual commercial sauce that you are offered in chinese take out and the shrimps are big and tasty) the fried rice also is excellent. we tried many other dishes and were all as good.
