We had business lunch in this restaurant, and we took mixed grill (shish tawook, kebab and fattoush), everything was delicious. There's also a no-smoking area upstairs. Not so common here.

Well known area in town. Located in a lively location, if you're in Cairo for more than two days - great place to try for dinner. Meat lovers will enjoy. Meals are large, prices are great. Service is good. Ambiance is good.

The food was average at best, the mixed grill was super over cooked. The fried rice portioned in the shape of a pyramid was a cute touch. There was a tempting KFC next door, but I guess we had to stick with our tour group....More

Nice view of the pyramids and the sphinx and a great place to watch the sunset. Flat bread with a variety of sauces/hummus then a mixed grill of mystery meats - all very tasty.
