Fodor's Review

You'll feel as though you're walking into an Arabian palace when you pass through the portal of this restaurant—the decor might be a touch kitschy, but the food definitely isn't. This is the place to immerse yourself in the full works, Egyptian style, and it serves just about the best Egyptian cuisine in Cairo. The choice of mezze—both hot and cold—is impressive. For main courses you'll have a choice of grilled meats, stuffed pigeon, and slow-cooked meat stews. There's also a branch at City Stars Mall.
