I think it very exaggerated in its prices. The food was delicious but the quantities were small. The place was quite well.

Stumbled into here. Service was good and the food was very good and far more than we could eat. What let it down was the number of people smoking. This was only evident after we had ordered or we wouldn't have stayed.

We went to the new Abou Shakra branch in new cairo for late lunch after work. We were all starving so we ended up ordering a main course each and sharing literally everything else on the menu. I had a shish tawook with brown rice for my main and we shared all the dips, sambosak, sogo2, dawood pasha, 1kilo kofta, and molokheya. Ther chef came out and poured the molokheya out of the pot onto the serving dish while we were eating! It smelt and tasted amazing. The atmosphere was relaxing and simple and there was a guy playing the Oud who is apparently there every weekend. I cannot say anything other than the fact that we all ate till every single plate was wiped clean, we topped it off with a cup of hot tea with mint and just sat back and enjoyed the music while we were trying to catch our breath. Perfect place and staff for a day when you are really hungry and yearning that perfect Egyptian meal. Bravo.

We went to this place a couple of times; the first being our arrival to Cairo late night so I thought the food was limited as we were probably visiting near closing time. However it was the same on our second return. Having eaten at other places where food was better tasting and service was of a higher standard with plenty of side dishes, I was a little disappointed with this restaurant. The good thing is it had a beautiful view of the pyramids and sphinx and you can see the lighting during sound and light shows at night.

The food quality is high. They have a lot of varieties but the price is very expensive compared to other places.
