El-Masry Review

Frequented by Egyptians and foreigners, the well-known El-Masry is a cool refuge from the rigors of the souk. The restaurant's been running since 1958 and has an American-diner-meets-French-café appeal. A broth of lamb and beef, a plate of rice, a dish of veggies, and a basket of whole-wheat flatbread precede the charcoal-grilled meats. Service is quick. No alcohol is served.

    El Masry Review

    The food here is good, the atmosphere so-so but we had such a nice time with the staff and other patrons that the experience was the highlight of our dinner at El Masry.
