Would not recommend as this restaurant chain claims to serve lebanese food. I believe it is a cheap imitation and not worth you waste your time and money.

For what!? to be stuck in an overcrowded space-full of overdressed people dancing to pretentious house music! Terrible, terrible, terrible .. I went there once with my friends and felt like I was in... More

The Tamarai is a nice rooftop bar with an exquisit ambiente and nice cocktails. However, getting there seems like a labyrinth. We had to ask 5 people and there was no signs for it. There're two towers and we finally, after 10 minutes made it there. The drinks are tasty and the staff attentive. One thing tho that got a... More

Lovely place, especially in the Spring and summer in the terrace, with a lovely view of the nile and amazing music by great Dj's and International Performance. Classier and Poshier Croud. Must go when you're in Cairo

A minimum charge of 250 set the stage in my head that I was going to receive immaculate service and an exquisite dining experience. Unfortunately, as with EVERY "posh" place in Egypt, the food was beyond horrible. I ordered the Smoked Salmon Garnish for 110 EGP and what followed was nothing short than a nightmare. 4 thin slices of smoked... More
