One of my favorite restaurants in Cairo. Has a lot of branches, zamalek area is more suitable for a night outing. Maadi branch is more enjoyable for lunch or early dinner

I love to eat and order from this Resturant and it's different branches. It offers the same menus. It has nice Middleeast decorations and good seating arrangements. Best food to get is the stuffed pigeon

The place is perfect for business dinners or taking out your foreign friends. They serve wine and beer which is not always available with Egyptian food restaurants. Perfect for tourists but it lacks the view as it closed area. Zamalek branch is the best

The decor and ambience is superb - a real Egyptian experience for a foreigner. Starters were yummy but mains pretty average. Worth visiting for the atmosphere if staying in Cairo for a while but probably not a foodie destination.

Its about luck. You can sometimes find food perfect abd others find some mistakes like the bread can be from the day before as well as pigeons can have a smelly taste.
