It's a must visit if in Cairo but is well designed for tourists. The food and items are well overpriced and different rates for locals in arabic and for tourists in English...especially Food. But it's buzzing with people.. full of lights & colors and mosques so quite an experience...so would recommend the visit.

A very relaxing luch with a magnificent view. I highly reccommend the appetizers and a fish with a tomato sauce which was excellent.

I was on my own, staying at the Mena House Hotel, and I decided to try the Khan El Khalili restaurant. I am so very glad I did! The dining room itself is worth the visit! It's a step back in time to a luxurious era. The service was excellent, as was the food. I had Lesan Asfour, a vegetable... More

However it wasnt for me. Poor choice from me. The service was good as there werent any others in the room. The decor is nice and the views great. Whilst staying at Mena House for 10 days I dined there once and didnt need to go back.

When we arrived in Cairo we had a private Egyptologist and an armed guard accompany us everywhere. This was recommended to us by both and we arrived to a very traditional restaurant, excellent service and a spread of local dishes. It was a lovely delicious lunch with an exotic atmosphere. It was a nice place to eat and relax after... More
