Nothing better after a days browsing/shopping in Khan el Khalili than sitting in the street watching the world go by whilst eating the most delicious Egyptian Pancakes. Many varieties of fillings are offered for the crispy flakey pastry, cooked before your eyes, our favourites are 'gibna rummy' (which is a local cheese you will only find in Egypt ) and... More

Whenever I visit Alazhar area I must eat there. It's the best place to eat after a long walk in Khan Alkhalili. You will find a very specific and various menu. Feter with sugar or with different types of meat, you will definitely find your taste. Best thing is that you eat outdoors to engage with people and feel the... More

This is an outdoor restaurant in the Khan Al Khalili. I loved the sweet pancakes. A bonus here is that it has a toilet for customers. Sitting outside is great, though you do get some vendors trying to sell you things as you eat. Service was fast. Staff speak good English.

65 egp for a pancake and a tea is way too much for Cairo. I com5pletwly lost my appetite after finding a hair in the pancake, meaning I am not coming back.

A small restaurant in the heart of Islamic Cairo, with the most delicious pancakes in town. The menu has a wide variety of salty and sweet pancakes. The portions are big and tasty.

This restaurant is located in the Khan el-Khalili bazaar and is not for those wanting elegance. But the food and experience is, indeed, unique. While they do have indoor tables, we chose to eat outside and the huge tour buses came within a few feet of our table! The "pancakes" come in a variety of types, layered and flaky, not... More

A very nice place to eat in the Khan el-Khalili souk. The pancakes are delicious, the people are very nice. I couldn't finish my enormous pancake, so the waiter had it wrapped for me. I would gladly go back!

In the hart of the Islamic Cairo, this place is very nice. If you wanna have a bite with an truly Egyptian flavour, then this is for you. If want you can sit on the next-door cafe and they will bring you the menu and will bring the fresh hot pans to you.
