Nice roof top with (usually) cold beer on tap, sheesha and very good indian food from the kitchen downstairs. Owner usually on hand to chat, good a place as any to spend an evening.

The Massala Indian restaurant in The Karvin Hotel in Cairo must surely be one of the best in town. The menu is extensive and the food authentic and tasty. I much prefer it to other more exalted venues, especially the rooftop restaurant. The service is good and there is usually a good atmosphere though the televisions can be a little... More

Massala has very good Indian food. Tried a few Indian restaurants in Cairo; this was in the Top 3. The place is part of Karvin Hotel

Though it may be hidden away in a side street in Heliopolis, it is located in a lovely area close to two of the major main streets in this district. It may be a small hotel however the service is comparable to any of the major hotel chains probably since management previously worked at the Oberoi. The Indian restaurant is... More

Both veg and non veg food served in this restaurant is very good and tasty. I would prefer to stay in this hotel during my next visit to Cairo mainly because of... More

The Karvin hotel is a small family run hotel with a great restaurant or to be accurate three - two air-conditioned and an open-air roof garden. Besides local dishes it serves authentic Indian and Chinese dishes. The table service is prompt and the waiters friendly. A must every time I visit Cairo!

Before I begin I must admit that I live in Cairo and that I've visited this restaurant a number of times. The food is always good. The menu is comprehensive enough for me and I come from Glasgow - a city which appreciates good Indian cuisine. The atmosphere is lively - noisy enough to feel uninhibited having a good time...
