Felfela is considered one of the oldest and most famous restaurant serving oriental Egyptian food. They are very famous with their Flafel sandwich.

If you're looking for Egyptian food, this is the place to visit! Portions are huge, so go hungry. The falafels are amazing. The shish-kabobs are awesome. YUM!

Middle of the road type restaurant. They offer variety of Egyptian's food at a reasonable prices. Service are not great but acceptable. Sometimes you might have to Wait a bet longer than usual for the food to arrive.

I took the family there for dinner and the place was not fully packed. Their food was ok and nothing to brag about but their waiters were awful. Besides being awful they were upset for not leaving them a tip.

Everything was fantastic and there appeared... More

Very close to Le Meridian hotel. Food was good, and the prices are fair. Waitstaff are attentive and friendly. Casual atmosphere. We went back a second night to try other dishes.
