“Go to the takeaway Felfela”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I actually went to the takeaway Felfela on Alexandria Desert Road in Giza. Meals are really cheap and of great quality, especially the falafel in pita. Order two as one is not enough.

Ordering can be a bit confusing as you're given tickets and are directed to either the left or right of the cash register. It seems like vegetarian orders were to the right and meat to the left. So ordering one of each meant waiting on both sides.

Some of the chefs weren't wearing gloves but I didn't feel like it was unhygienic. I loved it so much that I went back again the next day.

“Local, cheap and excellent”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is a great alternative to a sit down expensive hotel meal. Food is super good and charming. You can eat fast and cheap on the street exposure or inside for a bit more with lots of ambiance. This is an excellent choice for vegetarian as well as meat eater meals.

“Good food, inexpensive”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We got carry out and it was goodvegyptian fare. The falafel sandwich was tasty. Food is safe to eat, no worries. Inexpensive. If you have a guide, ask them to buy, as they get Egyptian prices.

“best restaurant to eat at”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

i think not only the food but the location and when you share the resturant with so many locals that adds another taste ...... the only unhappy thing is that the price can be a bit too expensive when you eat inside , but still perfect place when you are on a tour in cairo and want to eat some very local food , tasty and safe in a nice place , so many branches and famous areas
