Actually I tried the fondue once in Switzerland as it's the popular dish there. Once I found it in Egypt, I decided to try it and it's actually great. Same taste with more varieties. The stuff is friendly. The place is clean and cozy.

Nice place for gathering with friend around a Fondue Pot, service is good but prices are a little bit expensive, the place gets busy during weekend so better to make a reservation in advance.
