After visiting the Egyptian Museum and the Cairo Tower, my tour guide took me to Gad for a late lunch. We went to the second floor for a sit-down lunch of chicken shawarma. It was very tasty and quite filling. A shawarma is a combination of a wrap and a Panini. The ground floor was geared for take-away orders.

Best falafel in Cairo downtown. Hygiene is not respected. So, do not eat raw or uncooked vegetables or salads there. Staff are not so friendly as there is always rush time.

As 'GAD' is the egyptian 'Mc'Donalds', there is nearly on every street corner one store. Anyway, the prices are low as many locals eating here. The quality of the food is okay. If you tried other restaurants you see and taste that it is fast-food, but not too bad. I would recommend it for breakfast or the egyptian pizza (just... More

This place is a safe haven for tourists. It's a great place to understand the true cost of food in Egypt. Discovering Gad was a great relief as the prices on the English menu were cheap and not 10 times as much as the local menu (which to my disappointment I had found in other restaurants). Service was good, staff... More

The shops have a central ordering point, where you place your order and pay up. You then get a ticket which you take to the appropriate servery to get your meal... More

We visited here twice in Cairo and had amazing food each time. Value for money is outstanding. Be warned, the macaroni cheese which comes with some of the meal deals is like a meal in itself! Would highly recommend

A great local fast food stop serving cheap but plentiful wraps and pizzas. Decide what you want, pay at the central till and take your ticket to the counter where you get served. Watch the food being prepped in front of you and you know from the turnover that everything is always fresh. Absolutely great for vegetarians and meat eaters... More
