Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a well-regarded chain in Cairo that offers a fairly average menu and fare. Clean and reliable.

“I found bones inside my and my wife's burger that almost broke our teeth”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Completely avoid, as it appears on the surface the restaurant looks beautiful, and the food tastes good, however beneath, is very bad quality, if they are putting bones on what is supposed to be an expensive burger, then I wonder what else they are doing that the customers cannot detect.

Moreover, when I complained about this and shown the bones to the restaurant manager, I insisted I will not pay the bill, however, he did threaten that I have to pay, so I paid because I didn't want to ruin the experience for my wife, if I was all alone, I would have definitely went to the police station.

I made a follow up call to their customer service to file a complaint, but nothing has been done.

“Used to be better”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Spectra's old branch in Mohandessien used to offer amazing food, high quality, good portions, and fair price.
With their expansion, now they have a huge menu with lots of offers, but quality went down, some of the branches offer uneatable food.
