If you want to taste authentic Egyptian food, look no further. Please book yourself a table at Abou Shakra! We ate at its branch at Giza, overlooking the setting sun behind the pyramid of Cheops.

This restaruant is mainly for traditional Egyptian food. Especially the grilled chicken is the best. The price is expensive.

The local traditional restaurant serving meats to meat eaters, is featured with the too much hot spices. It is located at Kasr El Ainy street, a walking distance from Tahrir square and the very centre of Cairo. The staff were found friendly, with trendy local standards.

The restaurant is clean, staff is friendly but this is all the positive points I could notice.
Service is extremely slow and main dish was served for each of us separately, with 10 minutes lag. Food is just ordinary, not tasty however very expensive. The overall experience is poor.

We came here for lunch after visiting the pyramids and Sphinx. The view is amazing and the air con is much appreciated after a hot morning admiring the sights. The service was quick and friendly and the food was yummy my children loved the rice in a shape of the pyramids.
