Mori SushiFamily man wrote:I recently had lunch at Mori Sushi in Downtown mall in Tagamoa Khames and as always Mori Sushi was a great experience. The outlet has just recently opened but their food is as always consistently good. We ordered a large variety of sushi, rolls, sashimi and everything I tasted was delicious. Unfortunately however there seems to be a trend to deep fry sushi now (which in my opinion kind of is an oxymoron - raw fried fish hmmm?) or add cream cheese to everything. As far as I know the Japanese are not big cheese eaters and it does not go well with Sushi. Despite my little pet peeve I found some really nice dishes and we all ate with good appetite.
My kids like the salmon so we ordered lots of salmon rolls and salmon sushi whereas I like to experiment a bit more and ordered a variety of fish and combinations (not fried though or with cheese :)).
It is relatively expensive so for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids you should expect to pay at least LE 500 but you eat healthy and the fullness feeling you get is light.
Highly recommended More >>
Fino BakeryFamily man wrote:I love bread, especially bread where you should have teeth to eat it. Crunchy dark bread, walnut bread, grain bread. Yummy. If you are like me then Fino is a great place to go.
The owner used to live in New York and have bakeries there and the selection of bread is outstanding.
They make great sandwiches too. I usually eat a tuna sandwich on brown whole grain bread. It is made fresh and tastes delicious and you actually feel you are getting some nutritional value with your meal.
Now if you really want to indulge go for the cheese cake. It is not cheap mind you but OMG it is amazing. I believe they use 1,5kg of Philadelphia and when you lift the cake you feel the weight. They sell it per slice or as a whole and you can have different toppings on it. You just have to make sure that it is fresh because if it is even a day old it doesnt taste as good anymore.
Cakes HouseMarie Lou wrote:Egyptian friends knowing that I like pastries took me all the way from Maadi to Heliopolis to the Cakes House.
I may like sweets but nobody likes them the way Egyptians do, the place is lined with counters full of cakes, pastries, cookies, tarts, candies there is even a section (albeit a very small one) for diet confections. Great place to get hostess gifts of chocolate, in boxes, baskets even as a bouquet made out entirely of chocolate.
I ended up coming home with a luscious almond tart and a box full of arabic pastries, a whole lot of which I nibbled on the way. More >>
Boss Restaurant & Cafeahmedesebai wrote:I've been a Boss fan since it started as an English pub imitation with wooden walls, dim lights and everyday live entertainment (those were the days). A couple of years ago, the manager and owner made a leaping shape shift to the place which seemed very promising, but in my opinion, it didn't hold up to it's popularity as a famous Maadi pub. Nor as a club it was something in between, which couldn't win the competition to the neighboring bar (red onion) nor to the Cairo jazz club entertainment wise.
Cilantromoro wrote:When I go out with my friends, the first place to think of is Cilantro. Yup, of course, Cilantro. It's one of the most amazing places I have ever been to. I always go there to have a lot of amazing chocolate, that's my usual drink that I always order and it tastes amazing. The new menu is amazing it consists of several options first for food: sandwiches, breakfast and salads. As for drinks, hot or cold coffee, latte, juices, Pepsi and other cold drinks. You can add extras for any of the orders. The service is very good and I like Mohandeseen branch as it's lovely and refreshing.More >>

Greek ClublovesART wrote:Traditional Greek bouzouki music, vintage decor and an outdoor patio accompany Greek and Egyptian fare at this go-to tavern. This popular restaurant and bar is open to the public (entrance fee and minimum charge for non-members).

El Amir Cinemamomo wrote:Your cinema is fantastic. It is easy to reach and it is the best cinema because it is very close to my home. Watching movies has become much easier for me. The movies viewed are the recent ones and the best. You also bring movies from the outside, which I really love. You are suitable for any family to go and watch a movie together. Your ticket price is very suitable for all people and services are good. I love you very much, as does my family. We wait until any vacancy comes so that we can all go there together.
Cairo Opera HouseMarie Lou wrote:I love going to the Opera House, although I'm sure it does not have the grandeur of its burned down predecessor the Opera House complex is most imposing.
I check the English language news paper to see what's playing, when, as soon as I arrive in Cairo.
So far I've seen the Cairo Opera House Company perform Aida (very good), a concert of ancient Arabic music (fabulous) and a Broadway, very, very, off Broadway I should think (meh).
The acoustics are good, the view from every seat excellent and the lounge spacious.
The only problem is to get out of the parking lot when the performance is over, try to park as close to the exit as possible. More >>

Mandara SpaMarie Lou wrote:One day suffering from a case of “Pharaonic Phatigue “I decide to pay a visit to the Mandara Spa in the Marriott Hotel.
Relaxation starts when you step in to the foyer where you are offered a tray containing tea, a warm scented towel to refresh yourself and the list of treatments to choose from. The decor is tasteful Asian, the lights are dim, and a lovely citrusy fragrance and soothing music waft in the air. Even under the closest scrutiny what is most remarkable about the spa is the cleanliness, it is spotless.
Once you have picked out your choice of treatment an attendant escorts you to a changing and shower room, then to the area where it will be administered. The same serene, tasteful decor and outstanding cleanliness is present all over the spa.
I had a Moroccan bath and a rejuvenating facial both executed by a tiny Asian technician with hands surprisingly strong when giving a body massage and as light as butterflies when working on facials.
The experience was a vacation within a vacation and worth every penny. Always best to call ahead to make an appointment and specify what you want done so they can set up and be ready for you when you arrive.
Mandara SpaFamily man wrote:Best spa in Egypt. That pretty much sums it up.
I love a good massage and spa experience and the Mandara Spa is top notch. From the moment you enter you feel as if you have entered a different world.
You start by filling out a form detailing if there is any area you would like to have special focus on and if you have any areas which may have aches and pain. A great way to ensure there is no miscommunication and that you get exactly what you had in mind.
I had the deep tissue full body massage with focus on my back area. The masseuse was polite, petite and from Thailand and OMG she could apply pressure on all the right places.
It was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep and when my hour was up I just wanted to continue. I felt like a new man leaving and the biggest worry is that it is so good it could become addictive.
Pricing is not cheap (expect app LE 600 for 1 hour) but well worth every pound.More >>

Chiro Practic Clinic - Dr. Hesham AttaFamily man wrote:I sprained my back during a shoulder workout with the result that I was bed ridden. Constant pain and whenever I moved my neck a shooting pain flared up through my neck and down my back and into my arm. You realize how often you actually move your neck when it hurts.
Dr. Hisham Atta was recommended to me by a friend and I called him up and explained my situation. He was very helpful and I set an appointment the same day only a few hours later. He was relatively punctual and he even called me on my mobile to explain that the reason he was late (20 minutes) was that there had been an accident on the Corniche in Maadi and traffic was blocked up.
The treatment took app 45 minutes and I left a different man. I wasnt 100% cured but at least I could move without constant pain. His clinic is on the 16th floor of Maadi Hotel and parking around this area is very easy.
Dr. Hisham speaks fluent English and has several educational certificates from the US. He specializes in sports injuries and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need for help in that regard.
