“The spirit of Ramdan”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

This place is amazing during Ramadan. The holly month can't pass by without getting to hang out for Iftar at their amazing branch on Alexandria, which give you a great spiritual feeling with amazing food and good company. Keep the good food ;)

“Not what I had hoped for”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I tried the Maadi branch which was terrible. Extremely poor service and bad food and desserts. The CIty Stars branch was much better though. Better service and food but still not amazing. I wouldn't go there again.

“Totally Oriental .. The whole package”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for oriental food its your destination.
Superb food quality and and exclusive chef with top notch cooking skills with a variety of choices in their menu all in a ambience of soft light and oriental music ..
After the meal you can enjoy the desserts with shisha "argilah" "water pipe" with flavours or just a cold beer to refresh for another tour in Alexandria' down town.

I always love my experience there and always recommend it for any one visiting Egypt
And the prices are very reasonable with big food portions.

Enjoy

“Great food”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Great Egyptian food, very nice decoration and atmosphere and also the prices are good.
Go for the stuffed vine leaves and kofta (Egyptian meatballs). The whole appetizer list is great, maybe better than the main dishes :)
