This is an outdoor restaurant in the Khan Al Khalili. I loved the sweet pancakes. A bonus here is that it has a toilet for customers. Sitting outside is great, though you do get some vendors trying to sell you things as you eat. Service was fast. Staff speak good English.

65 egp for a pancake and a tea is way too much for Cairo. I com5pletwly lost my appetite after finding a hair in the pancake, meaning I am not coming back.

A small pancake shop that serves delicious tasty pancakes both savoury and sweet. My favourite is the crispy sugar ones. Very cheap. You should give it a try if your around.

A small restaurant in the heart of Islamic Cairo, with the most delicious pancakes in town. The menu has a wide variety of salty and sweet pancakes. The portions are big and tasty.

This restaurant is located in the Khan el-Khalili bazaar and is not for those wanting elegance. But the food and experience is, indeed, unique. While they do have indoor tables, we chose to eat outside and the huge tour buses came within a few feet of our table! The "pancakes" come in a variety of types, layered and flaky, not... More

A very nice place to eat in the Khan el-Khalili souk. The pancakes are delicious, the people are very nice. I couldn't finish my enormous pancake, so the waiter had it wrapped for me. I would gladly go back!

In the hart of the Islamic Cairo, this place is very nice. If you wanna have a bite with an truly Egyptian flavour, then this is for you. If want you can sit on the next-door cafe and they will bring you the menu and will bring the fresh hot pans to you.

These pizzas are loaded with oil but I guess that's one of the reasons why they taste so good. If you're familiar with Chinese food, they're basically similar to a green onion pancake but stuffed with other ingredients instead. I thought they were quite tasty! I had a fresh mango juice to go with my meal too and it was... More

The pancakes are okay, but nothing special. The best we had was the sweet dessert one, but it was very sweet. Service was fine. Location is good, and it has a toilet. We were constantly besieged by street hawkers, but did have our shoes cleaned while we ate.
