I'm not sure what's going on with all the poor reviews, but we travel to Thailand every year and we actually make 'Cairo' one of our first things to do when we arrive because we enjoy it so much! Yes, it is a little expensive. But everything we've eaten here has been amazing. They make the best hommus I have ever eaten, and my husband loves the curry with chicken and okra. The atmosphere is nice- lots of opportunities for people-watching and they offer argile (shisha) as well. Can't wait to go back!

I hadn't been back to Patong for many years but there appeared to have been a proliferation of Middle Eastern eateries. Convenient location, this establishment was part of a strip of restaurants located a block off the beach and a few minutes' walk from our hotel. Interesting decor outside - had the weather been less humid during the day, we would have preferred to have had lunch at one of the tables facing the main road. Having said that, the air-conditioned section inside (popular with Middle Eastern families) was only slightly cooler but still rather stuffy at times. Not much of an atmosphere to speak of during the day but would probably be more comfortable at night, where like other similar restaurants, shisha smoking is available.

The waiting staff didn't speak a lot of English, so we had to resort to a bit of pointing at the menu to get our orders across. For some reason, nearly everyone's orders arrived before ours even though we had placed ours first. Nevertheless, the waiter apologised for the longer than normal wait. This being Thailand, the menu offered Thai as well as Middle Eastern favourites, We found the portions of kebabs and felafels quite tasty and very filling. Many dishes also come with rice, so go easy on ordering additional bread. Overall, not very cheap but I guess the days of cheap food in Patong are long gone.

Really good food and quite reasonable price, loses a point because there is no alcohol allowed but really tasty.

This was our second time we visited Cairo. The first being about four years ago and we recalled it as full of interest and good food. This time it was a shocker. The middle eastern male staff were dismissive at best and downright rude and in attentive. They couldn't really be bothered with us (even though we were the only other table in the otherwise empty restaurant). The drifted off while we were ordering, clearly too bored or self important to take our order. Sadly for them, other than the clearly stale bread, the food was lovely. They couldn't wait to get us out the door. The Thai female staff were, as you would expect, really nice. They didn't make up for their culturally inept bosses who clearly don't want to make a success of this business. Give it a miss.
