Fodor's Review

This famous café is right in the heart of the medieval marketplace; this is the great café in Cairo, open around the clock and beloved by tourists and locals alike. The chairs spill out into the alley, and the walls are hung with thick, old-style mirrors decorated with elaborate woodwork. Tea with fresh mint is the house specialty.

very dangerous place

Very dangerous place. Beggars all over the place. people selling fake stuff. I did that mistake of buying something from them and literally, I was threatened of beaten up by thugs if I don't pay extra over the agreed on price. I had to pay few extra dollars to get out safe. workers didnt do anything at all and there was no cops around. I would avoid khan elkhalili in general and find some other safer places where I can get the cultural experience.
