Great restaurant, nice walk from the hotel or from the museum.Lunch for the Egyptians starts around 3:00 p.m. so we were a little early but it got hopping. Food was excellent!

This was a fast food restaurant in the heart of Downtown Cairo. The ambience is old school and quite basis, but the food here is quite amazing. We loved the Shawarma and this was our go to place in Cairo. Also, the prices are quite low which makes it even better!

I have been going to Felfela's for over 30 years and it was the place to go to for authentic Egyptian cuisine. Our meal was very good the night we went but the entire restaurant was rather dinghy, deserted and tired looking.

I thank them for opening most of the time during Ramadan. As I had hard time finding restaurants during lunch time and people eat only after sunset. Felfela has most egypian dishes less than 50 EGP and eyptian sandwiches for less than 10 EGP. I liked their shishi taouk, soups. It's good for lunch, snack, quick bites but not for... More

There's been quite a number of Egyptian restaurants cropping up around town but this is certainly the best and most authentic! All the classic Egyptian fava beans favourites are available as well as some recipes with an adventurous twist. Ambiance is lovely too.

Always when I visit Egypt I have to come back to this restaurant for its many selection of Egyptian food on the Menu. The service was great along with the staff.

The place was dark and hot, no power, so no air conditioning. the food was at best average. the lentil soup and lemonade with mint was the saving grace
