Very good egyption food variety. Especially “Fatta and Mombar” with good service. Decor is Ok, price little bit high. Over all, good place for family or friends gathering with good food.

If you want to have the best and authentic Egyptian food you should go to abou el-sid, cant recommend a special dish because almost everything tastes so good there, but the number one dish i think is the mlokheyeh with chicken or rabbit.

Came here for dinner and loved the dim and cozy ambiance. Service was good and food was authentic. We had the kofta, shrimp tagine, and Fattah. Had the mango and guava juice which was refreshing.

The restaurant is located in an old house decorated with memorabilia from Cairo’s golden age. However, the restaurant is low on hygiene and the food is very oily. The glass of our table had stains and not cleaned properly. I just couldn’t eat. The food...More
