The place has the Egyptian eastern type of ambiance, tasty food, you can play board games and card games, the place is inside Katara where you have to check out on your way to the restaurant, the place is very interesting for friends and gatherings you get entertained with a simple live band roaming around with eastern musical instrument

The only bad thing they do have minimum charge on the evening time, where if you are planning to go for sheesha and drink it will not be feasible... More

Without any hesitation, of course I ordered Koshari and Foul Alexandrian. My friends settled with their orders of chicken bbq. The koshari is very tasty and compared with... More
