“Maadi restaurants”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

They opened a new branch in Maadi. We found the restaurant very satisfactory. The service was very good and we were greeted by the lovely restaurant manager explaining to us the best dishes.
The food was very good. The grilled paneer, daal, and biriyani was excellent, but we had another chicken dish (maybe masala), which was ok.
I loved the desert which was coconut ice cream.
The restaurant decor is a bit shabby, but clean, so all in all quite good.
I would definately go again. The prices are also moderate.

“Excellent food, superb service in a tiny restaurant.”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

It is not easy to find good service in Egypt outside the big hotels, yet the Maharaja restaurant in the sooq (market) of Rehab City, huge enclosure in New Cairo, is one place where you do. Maybe it is because the owners and personnel originate from Syria (not the cook, he is truly Indian, I saw him) and Syrians are renowned for their F&B management skills.
In any case the food choice is great and available for all tastes, even those who cannot eat hot and spicy food. The choice of ingredients is of high quality and well presented. The menu is also in English and suitable for anyone not expert in Indian food.
The restaurant itself is very small, not more than 40 seats or so and the atmosphere not to the standard of the food. This is understandable as they are mostly concentrated on home delivery service which is mostly the case in Egypt.
