Been there with friends A menu with limited varieties however tasty . And cool drinks. Waiters are not preofessional enough. Really overpriced. And they have obligatory 200 pounds as a minimjm charge. Prices in the cheques is not as typed in the menu (over priced of course). They could do a lot better with their nice restaurant.

What was once the best vegetarian restaurant in Cairo has given in to mass-market pressure and now serves meat. The food is pretty good, not excellent but certainly more than adequate, but the staff are enough to put customers off. So slow to serve expats, uncommunicative and surly. I avoid the place unless I have no option. Sad, once it... More

Went there with a few friends for drinks. Atmosphere was really nice. Food and appetizers were pretty good, although portions are quite small for the asking price as it is over priced. Also waiters seemed to take advantage of our good spirits and the fact we were ordering drinks and kept bringing us rounds that weren't really asked for and... More

We came here because it was said to be the first veg restaurant in Cairo and were excited to try it out. There weren't really many veg options (we are vegan). We ordered and both asked for no cheese on our meals. Mine was fine but his was covered. They took it back and literally just scraped all the cheese... More

Well portions are for babies but rich ones. Wrong check that included item paid in a separate check, when waiter is asked to modify it, he claimed that no one paid anything, without even checking before accusing me of being a liar or a bluff.
