My sister rented the place for her engagement party and it was great. nice views, good service..etc. The food was good as well. I think the cost was around EGP 7000 for 70 persons in 2008.

i love it it's a different place where you can enjoy your meal while listening to at least 3 different singers.. what i love more about it that alcohol is not allowed so you wont be bothered by drank people..
