Really this is the worst restaurant to order anything from it, the quality of food is disaster and the customer service have no idea about their products and how to handle a complaint . We ordered from their hot line 16475 some sandwiches for the breakfast and they took more than 1 hour and 15 min to deliver it but... More

A typical fast food chain in Egypt brings a twist to the common food. Here you can eat the traditional falafel, rice and not so traditional French fries. The most intriguing thing about this place is how Egyptians eat there. It is a tumultuous place with constant movement, so for me it was a bit shock eating with so much... More

We had good schwarma and falafel here. Food was inexpensive and tasty. But the cleanliness is terrible, they really don't wash plates and utensils, sat near the washing station. Would not go back.

After visiting the Egyptian Museum and the Cairo Tower, my tour guide took me to Gad for a late lunch. We went to the second floor for a sit-down lunch of chicken shawarma. It was very tasty and quite filling. A shawarma is a combination of a wrap and a Panini. The ground floor was geared for take-away orders.

Best falafel in Cairo downtown. Hygiene is not respected. So, do not eat raw or uncooked vegetables or salads there. Staff are not so friendly as there is always rush time.

As 'GAD' is the egyptian 'Mc'Donalds', there is nearly on every street corner one store. Anyway, the prices are low as many locals eating here. The quality of the food is okay. If you tried other restaurants you see and taste that it is fast-food, but not too bad. I would recommend it for breakfast or the egyptian pizza (just... More

This place is a safe haven for tourists. It's a great place to understand the true cost of food in Egypt. Discovering Gad was a great relief as the prices on the English menu were cheap and not 10 times as much as the local menu (which to my disappointment I had found in other restaurants). Service was good, staff... More

Gad is a chain of take aways in Cairo. We used the one in Downtown, and our driver bought meals for us at some other locations during our travels. The shops have a central ordering point, where you place your order and pay up. You then get a ticket which you take to the appropriate servery to get your meal... More
