One of the best grilled food, especially the chicken and pigeons, you can get in Cairo. It is marinated and grilled the "Egyptian way".
The original restaurant is in Downtown (beginning of Kasr El Aini Street), a small place which I prefer. I have taken expats and visiting foreigners, both for the food and a for light version of a cultural experience. They all loved it. If you are looking for a slightly more modern and spacious Egyptian restaurant: there are several other branches in Cairo and Alexandria.
Not many more Egyptian places that are so good, that they opened up restaurants outside of Egypt.
They serve all kinds of other Egyptian foods, which I am told is good.

My wife and I have stopped attempting to live through the ordeal of going to any of their branches. Meat is mostly lamb, so very heavy and the food is more like a fast food experience serving barbequed meat, than going to a restaurant for a decently served and tasty meal. Not at all recommended, if you wish the memories of famous "kabab" to remain favorable in your mind.
So do not waste you time and money on any of its branches.
