In al Zamalek، this is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food. We were so pleased :) Thought it would all be for show، but it was authentic and the service was charming. Check them out.

I would have enjoyed the food immensely if I were not allergic to cigarette smoke. Everythign was lovely -- people, food, environment -- but Abou el-Sid is not for those of us who breathe with difficulty when there's so much smoke in the air.

You will love the plac and the food there but if you are allergic to smoke ... Don't try it as it's closed place and very full of smoke.

Amazing local cuisine, perfect environment and very good prices. Really there is nothing to add other than that it should be a must visit place in Cairo to try the local cuisine in a clean and authentic way. Not a touristic place.
