can't remember the names of the food we had for lunch but the variety, especially the appetizers, were very good and Middle Eastern, of course. You can always 'watch' people enjoying the hookah pipe (a sight unfamiliar to Westerners). Photos inside are discouraged (keep that in mind). The restaurant is in the Khan El Khalili Bazaar which allows for endless... More

The place is suppose to sale traditional Egyptian stuff but most of stuff was fake. However it's a good place to see the traditional Egyptian life and coffee shops.

You could see the pyramids while having your dinner. The vibe was very old elegant glamourous Egypt . The soup was flavorful. The... More

Had dinner while touring the bazaar. The menu was varied enough with local favorites to satisfy everyone in our party of 8. Local entertainers were playing traditional Egyptians tunes surrounded by what appeared to be their regular followers (mostly elderly women). Americans need to be ready for copious about of hookah smoke and an occasional cigarette, traditional in Egypt. Seems... More

I had ordered a burger and it was not to my liking, so they took it back and gave me curry chicken, which I enjoyed very much. That should have been the end of it, but it wasn't. The next night when I was back, I ordered the chicken because I enjoyed it and they gave me a burger, telling... More

Nice option to consider if you're in Khan El Khalili area. Restaurant is quite authentic but doesn't seem to have any outdoor area which is a pity. Too smoky to my taste but if you fancy shishas definitely a place to consider. #Sahtein

Located in an elegant and historical setting with service that is friendly, relaxed and efficient. Moderately priced eclectic menu with both Egyptian and western dishes. We ate here several times (as it is in the hotel) and enjoyed every meal.

The food there is great. The view is great but can be better when the hanging things are removed. Service is terrible!! Food came after a very long time. Waiter was smelly and lost his temper while I was explaining a mistake to him in the bill. Moreover, the restaurant charged me double on my visa card (and Im still... More
