We managed to find the place, but the owner has closed the restaurant now. Thus, your travel guide might recommend the restaurant but you'll find out it does not exist any longer.

They moved to a diffrent location near almaza bus station more than a year ago.
Another restaurant is in the old location.

The new location is nice and cozy.
Great Egyption food and shisha.
Try the kofta sandwich.

I was there in 15 april with a friend living and own a hotel in germany , its 2 restaurants in one place , strada and le caire 1940
U cant breath from the smoke of shisha everywhere , its not almost respectful restaurant , its coffe for shisha ,
They r playing music from sound system, sound is ssssso high , we asked 3 times to reduce sound and reaction is nothing , then we said we will leave so they have a response at last ,
We asked food which was not bad but not so good anyway ,
Big problem happened when i asked for cheek and i gave them my credit card , first reaction was a stupid question , do u have cash ?
I said its not ur business i will pay by credit card
I paid and we gone with regret for being in place like this
Big problem begin after 2 days from that bad visit , i found them cutting same amount from my credit card 4 times and I cancelled my visa card from my bank and asked for new card with another nu and i have to pay 300 le as fees for the new card ,
I went to that bad restaurant asking them to give me money they took 3 times in addition they refused and said that they only collect it once , i show them the 4 times they took in my visa statement and also refused
After 4 days one of them came to my bank took print official and went to their bank then they confess that there is a mistake and they will put my money back in my visa card again ,
I asked for the fees i paid for issue a new card because of their mistakes they refused
End of story and i advice everyone to be away from that restaurant
Bad bad bad in everything
Never in le caire 1940 or strada again
