We went to Gad after reading in Lonely Planet. It is not a fancy restaurant but great Egyptian food. Please try the Hamam Mashi and Chocolate Crepe. They are delicious.

Lovely falafel, hummus etc. 'Shakshuka' more like scrambled egg with tomato. Ask for the English menu - it really helps knowing what you're ordering (even then, you might not get quite what you thought you were getting - don't be precious about it, just enjoy the food, and if you can't eat it, send it back and ask for something...

Our tour guide grabbed takeout lunch for us in this chain the first day-chicken and beef sandwiches. Tasty, warm and quick and to our Canadian budget, great prices. Didn't eat in so can't comment on that aspect We wound up having lunch from here all three days- and enjoyed it every time

Gad does extremely tasty barbeque chicken dishes, but is quite expensive compared to most egyptian takeout. Having said that, for foreigners it is very cheap. A simple chicken and rice meal is recommended.

We went to GAD during Dinner time. We ordered a soup and 2 different vegetarian Falafels. Everything tasted good BUT came out really cold. A cold soup is no fun. The people were nice and very helpful. Will try again, and maybe ask for temparature hot food.
