“My favorite place in egypt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We just sat down and had some mint tea and smoked some shisha. The experience seeing the street vendors, live music, and real Egiptians living their life was amazing. Hands dows, this is my favorite place in Egypt.

“Was expecting more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

My wife and I ate at this restaurant while we were staying at the Mena House Hotel and we were not impressed. Though the restaurant is beautiful the food was average. For being part of such an incredible establishment is a bit disappointing because the atmosphere is nice, the view is excellent, the service is fine, however the cuisine is NOT 5 star standards.

The ambiance and the view = no complaints.

Sorry Mena House . . . restaurant overrated.

Located in the not so cluttered areas of the Khan El Khalili Market, this restaurant has excellent food. I have been there many times and I have never been disappointed.

Do you want to enjoy awesome food while gazing at the great pyramids - Khan El Khalili is the place to be. Part of the historic Mena House this is a legendary restaurant and a must visit in Cairo. The restaurant offers various cuisines but the egyptian delicacies are must try. Thumbs up
