Restaurants Eat Out

  • Roastery Restaurant & Coffee ahmed diesel wrote: Roastary, the high class restaurant, is I think one of the best restaurant I ever been to. I could say there are one or two things I like; first the menu is large enough to give you a good choice and second the quality and the taste of the dishes is stable. My one bad comment is that the place is small and can't accommodate all customers all of the time, I had to wait for a table. It's an excellent restaurant that I would rate 8 out of 10, only they must expand the present one or open another. More >>
  • Casper & Gambini's lovesART wrote: This internationally franchised restaurant chain works hard to live up to its motto of “In Pursuit of Perfection”. The menu features excellent coffee drinks, breakfast items, healthy sandwiches, salads and light entrees. For a hearty dinner, choose from a variety of pastas, fish and beef dishes. The atmosphere is comfortable with warm colors, leather banquettes, wood tables and a spotless open-air kitchen. Don’t forget dessert. The chocolate fondant cake, available in two sizes, has customers coming back for more. Service is friendly and unobtrusive. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • El Domiaty Sweets Wassily wrote: El domiaty, it's above comments, it's one of the best places you can buy your dessert from. Whether it's Basbosa or Konafa or others, this is the place to go. The prices are amazing and they have a wide variety of everything, cakes, tarts, etc. The packaging is great and gives a huge value to what you bought, especially if you’re gifting it in any occasion. People are friendly and helpful and I like how they always offer me free samples to try out new things while I am there. Only problem is that there aren’t many branches of this shop, so I am hoping it will spread across Egypt someday. More >>
  • El Domiaty Sweets momo wrote: Domiaty Patisserie is the best in the field of baking. Everybody knows your name. You are the oldest in the field since you started in Egypt. Domiaty is the best patisserie in the world, people just love it because the product is just delicious and tasty and the ingredients very fresh and tasty and the bakery is fantastic. I love your food so much. Your prices are very reasonable and you have an important advantage, you have many branches, that’s also why I love you. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Roma Cafe & Bistro Mohamed Salah wrote: Roma cafe is not just another ordinary cafe in Nasr city. It's a place that has its culture and its nice crowd. This is one of the few places where you enjoy watching premier league and EUFA matches with really passionate people about football, you'll find that everyone has his team that he supports madly! At night, Roma has a nice relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy a shisha, grab a sandwich or pizza. There is an outdoor setting where there is no TV or Music so you just enjoy talking with your friends and indoors you can watch TV or listen to music. Their shisha (20 LE for fakher including Lay) is more than perfect; you get wel3a every 10 minutes without asking. Food is good as well, the bacon burger (50 LE) is a gourmet burger comes served with homemade fries, onion rings, fresh vegetables and coleslaw... Little bit expensive but well worth it. Service is good and fast, waiters are so friendly, they know customers by name and customers know them. Bathroom is clean. Parking could be a problem but they have a valet parking you can leave your car key to the "Sayes". More >>
  • Boss Restaurant & Cafe ahmedesebai 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. More >>

Clubs

  • Sakkara Country Club fido wrote: Sakkara Country club is located right along the desert line just north of Abou Sir Pyramids (Sakkara Step Pyramids are just south of Abou Sir). i've been a member there for years and the past couple of years have been under new ownership which are really turing the club around - currently new and large infinity pools are being put in, the restaurant is being refurbished, the rooms were gutted and completely redesigned and there are other grand plans. So, if you would like a relaxing spot to hang out in on the weekends... swim, ride horses, play tennis, rent quads .... Sakkara Country Club is a great place, particularly for families. The kitchen staff is new and the food is very good while also reasonably priced. The grand opening is likely going to be after Ramadan so if your planning on joining a club, check it out then More >>
  • Greek Club Mina wrote: Greek Club is a very nice place to spend your evening for a night out with friends or for dates. It's a great calm place with a great atmosphere and a very nice view. I went there once where I headed directly to the restaurant where I ordered seafood. The food was delicious and well cooked, service was very good and food was served in a timely manner. Prices were a little bit high, but that is expected for any place that serves fresh fish. You can either choose to sit inside or in the open air. Both choices are great. I am definitely going there again. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Al Azhar Park medo wrote: it has a great view you can see most of old cairo you can see salah el den castle , old mosques and if you go at night you will see a horrible view it will be with spcial light you will feel as if you are in el moqttam. and it is so cheep to go there you have to pay only a ticket for 5 L.E and i think it is just to keep their services such cleaning and this is the most thing i like there anyway if you want to get rest and have something to eat or drink there are many cafe shops and a wonderful restuarant with a view as if you are inside a lake it is an artificial lake and by the way their food is great . but i think it has something missing i wish to find it an amusement park for the kids as i have a daughter now :) and i like about al azhar park too the security there they help you anytime because the park is wide and keeping eyes on children too i think they have a great management their.

  • Dream Park besso wrote: It is the Egyptian Disney Land...It is really a good place with very good design and with very good games that make your day much better....Everyone should go there and experience playing in this very good Park. More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Galaxy Cinema Wassily wrote: Cinema Galaxy is the real home of the best movies ever... with a great price for the 10 am and 1 am sessions and 30 L.E for other sessions, with sessions up till 1:00 am. It's a great place to enjoy your favorite new movies once they are released in Egypt. The cinema itself is organized, with a great cafeteria where you can buy your favorite snack for the movie... POPCORN and other products. The Cinema halls itself are very clean and very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and they are always happy to help you with any problem you may have. The sound isolation is very well designed (since I am an architecture student, I pay attention to these things) so you don’t feel echo or sounds from another movie next to you. One of the best Cinema places in Egypt. More >>
  • Golden Stars Cinema AdoniS wrote: Yes, very comfortable seats.. but I would suggest you to have a jacket because it might be a bit chilly.. at least for me. More >>

Fitness Centers

  • Eve's Gym wrote: Eve’s gym is a relatively small gym for women only. My wife has joined this gym only two months ago. Eve’s Gym actually was opened around 3-4 years ago, it has a good reputation but is not famous as other gyms some of which were opened later than Eve’s. It is located in a street parallel to the Military Academy where most of Heliopolis residents use to go jogging daily (a good location to attract customers). The most unique thing about Eve’s gym is that Music is not allowed there, a benefit my wife really appreciated. Eve’s gym staff are all females even the owner. They are all friendly. At Eve’s, the trainees’ are all supervised by professional trainers at all times. Eve’s provide machines exercises, steaming, and aerobics. The subscriptions’ fees are lower than other well known gyms. The opening hours from 07:00 am to 10:00 pm. 7 am is great for working women or those who have children at school but 10:00 pm is very early and does not suit most of the trainees especially in summer time. My wife tried hard with them to extend their working hours but they refused because the trainers are leaving far and they must leave at 10:00 pm so that they can arrive at their homes at around 11:30 – 12:00 at midnight.

Spas

  • Mandara Spa Family man wrote: Update to my previous review; I recently went again to Mandara spa and the place itself as well as the massage is still one of the best in Egypt. I had a 90 minutes sports massage and the massage really went deep into my knots and I felt refreshed and relaxed afterwards. The lady was really great. However the small things often make a big difference and the towels and bathrobes smelled really bad and even after exchanging them the replacement also smelt really bad. The very nice Thai lady who brought us the towels smelled them herself and the face she made when she smelled them said it all. I almost laughed. She explained that the laundry service of the hotel is not working properly!!!! WHAT? I wonder what they do with all their sheets. Not a nice thought. Besides that you take of (almost) all of your clothes to get a massage and then you walk to the massage room from your locker room. They used to have the one time slippers that all 5 star hotels have in their rooms but this time they had a pair of plastic slippers that really looked as if they had been worn by a construction worker for years. No way am I going to put my feet in those. I guess the times are hard and they need to save where they can but saving on towels and slippers is not the right place. It really ruins the whole mood.

  • Mandara Spa Family 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 >>

Doctors

  • ODC - Osman Dental Clinic Family man wrote: I started going to Dr. Osman approximately 3 years ago because my daughter had a problem with an overbite. We went first to several other dentists and none of them instilled confidence in me or my daughter. Dr. Osman is great with kids and my daughter immediately fell at ease with him and so did we. After everything was done the invoice was less than 10% of what the other dentists had quoted. We were very (pleasantly) surprised. Since then we have been going regularly to ODC and I have recommended this place to my friends as well. In the clinic they also have the best dental hygienist in Egypt, Dr. Jackie. She has been cleaning my teeth for many years (she works in another dentist clinic as well) and now she is also cleaning the teeth of my wife and kids. Best dentist in Egypt. More >>

Hospitals & Medical Centers

  • Al Salam Hospital - El Mohandeseen ODDA wrote: Excellent medical care, but it's pricy of course. I recommend it, but you must have big pockets... and God bless us all :) More >>
  • American Hospital medo wrote: this hospital is mainly for giving birth and they have other sections for women skin and hair you know such things for being pretty anyway i would like to tell you about it as my wife went there when we got our daughter, they are more than clean, their rooms are so comfortable as i stayed with my wife so i saw it by myself. they really took care of my wife and our baby, their doctors and nurses are so helpful by the way we got our private doctor i wanna say you can bring a doctor and he doesn't work in the hospital and they will cooperate with him well. they also teach my wife how to deal with the baby as our daughter is our first baby. they served good food too, their prices are reasonable but if you have a medical insurance they exceed their limit but not with so much, i give them 4 stars because i was having medical insurance for my wife and they got very long time to let my wife inter her room because of the paper work i really got angry so much at this time and i hope that this to be changed as i said the hospital was wonderful except this issue.
