Row upon row of the favorite Ramadan sweets and desserts.

Restaurants Eat Out

  • Cook Door Wassily wrote: Cook Door, El Zamalek. I used to go there after college (fine arts). The place is great with a lot of space, but it had a weird condition, its only open for take away till a certain hour, 6:00 pm as I remember. Before that it's only take away and no sit-in eating at the restaurant. I never understood why, as for the food it's great and tasty. I especially like their super crunchy combo with frisky fries with their awesome dipping sauce, my only problem is the time it takes for your food to get ready. It takes a long time. Other than that, it's a great restaurant. More >>
  • Makani Family man wrote: I used to be a big fan of Makani and their selection of sushi is great. However I guess when it is over 40 c outside ordering home delivery sushi to begin with is not a smart idea unless it was delivered in a cooling box. Some other sushi delivery places do this and I would recommend adapting the same concept for Makani. I have never eaten at any of their restaurants but I guess it would be a safer bet. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • El Abd Pastry momo wrote: El Abd is my favorite place to go. Whenever I hang out downtown or go shopping or walking I feel like I have to go and visit El Abd. I love their ice cream, it’s awesome and tastes great, like real fruit and not too sweet which is perfect for me. I love their cake also, it’s so tasty. I love buying one or two and go to a coffee shop nearby and enjoy it with tea. The staff is nice and professional except sometimes when it’s crazy or too crowded they are kind of rushed and look like they don’t care much for the customers, but I understand they are just rushed and want to serve as many customers as they can.

  • La Pomme Pastry Wassily wrote: La Pomme pastry, I have had a lot of past experience with it across the years. It serves eastern sweets, cakes and chocolate. They had a very good offer where you buy a large set of coupons, which consists of different coupons with different offers and discounts. It was a great money saver, and I used all of the coupons on special occasions or when I felt like eating something sweet. Quality of the food there is high, and not expensive. They also serve eastern Pizza and Italian pizza and pastries. I only tried the eastern pizza and it was ok, but I still prefer to buy sweets rather than pizza or pastries from la Pomme. More >>

  • Smouha Club saytara wrote: Smouha Club is the first and biggest club in Alexandria. Smouha Club is clean and comfortable, suitable for the young and the not so young, even the children have a place of their own. There are facilities for polo, soccer, table tennis, basketball, volleyball, handball, hockey, swimming, water polo, and there are two areas reserved for skateboard. There are also many restaurants such as; McDonald’s, Sinos, Festival, Happy Time, Buffalo, and Bon Appetit. Really this club is super cool because there are plenty of choices there. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • 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 >>
  • Al Azhar Park Wassily wrote: Al Azhar park is the first of its kind in Egypt. It’s a place you can go with your family or your group of friends and have a lot of fun and enjoy your time. Once you enter, you face a very beautiful fountain. Then you move forward and you see the beautiful landscape and the green areas spread across the park. With various pergolas spread allover, you can sit anywhere you want and enjoy your time. Also with excellent food shops and outlets, you can go there and find all your needs. Food, great outdoor place, lots of green areas and the all-time beautiful huge lake. The only thing I didn't like is that at the fountains and the water places, there are children who go there and swim and no one says it's forbidden and they just let them, which ruins the scene and the beauty of the place. Just hope they have more security guards or park guards to stop that from happening, other than that. The place is perfect. More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • El Amir Cinema momo 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. More >>
  • El Bandar Cinema Mounir wrote: I always like to watch new -mid night- movies there... always clean... friendly staff... great pop corn... 25 L.E. for the ticket is fine... More >>

Fitness Centers

  • Pro Center Health Club Mohamed Salah wrote: Pro gym is one of the top gyms in Egypt. It is located in Nasr City, El Nasr Road just a few blocks after Tiba mall. The gym is very well equipped with Cardio/Vascular machines, weight lifting, all kinds of machines you would need. It also has Sauna, Jacuzzi, and Steam room in addition to a swimming pool at the roof of the building. The gym itself is located on the last floor of the building taking the complete floor. The gym is mixed, also with the option of ladies only hall, making it nice to go with your spouse for some work out. The cons are that it is extremely hard to find a parking spot, i used to park next to the building in an empty piece of land but now that they are building a tower, there is no place to park, actually this is why i didn't renew my membership. Also the other problem is that the gym can get crowded very easily, you would have to wait for 10-15 minutes sometime to get an empty treadmill. The owners of the place should understand is that once they have reached the capacity they should close the door to new memberships, or open a new branch to serve the increasing crowd. More >>
  • 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.

  • 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 Marie 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. More >>


  • Dr. Adel Rabie Pharmacy Sha Sha wrote: Here's a nice neighborhood pharmacy with friendly people running it and working there. Dr Rabea goes out of his way to service his customers. If he doesn't have what you require, he'll find it for you elsewhere and have it delivered to his place, usually within just an hour or so. He's very knowledgeable and offers his advice and suggestions on alternatives available, i.e. generic prescriptions, etc. More >>
  • Ali & Ali Pharmacies Sha Sha wrote: Ali and Ali is open 24 hours and makes home deliveries. They've never NOT had what I was looking for and the sales staff is friendly and helpful, even offering less expensive alternatives to products you might want. More >>


  • Chiro Practic Clinic - Dr. Hesham Atta fido wrote: I've been exercising for most of life and in the process I have managed to injure my back several times. Typically my back injuries have been in the lower back and every time the injury reoccurred i was basically out of the gym for several weeks ... until i met Dr. Atta... Dr. Atta diagnosis the affected area quickly and gets to work. He is a chiropractor, among other things, and has access to all of the essentials for back related pain and muscle injuries including ultrasound. Generally, in my case, a few back-to-back 15 minute sessions is all it takes to solve the problem and put me back in the gym. I highly recommend Dr. Atta and aside from being very good at what he does, he is also very personable. More >>

Hospitals & Medical Centers

  • Abou Bakr Medical Center soliman wrote: I strongly recommend that you go there to make the medical examination for the driving license. It's less crowded than any similar place in Ismailyah. More >>
  • Misr International Hospital Family man wrote: Any business is as good as the people working there and hospitals are no different. There was a medical emergency in my family which necessitated that we visit a hospital all of a sudden Thursday night at 2 am during Ramadan. Misr International Hospital (MIH) was recommended to us by a family member so we went. Some of the staff were very nice and helpful especially the non-medical staff. There was one gentleman in particular who really went out of his way to help us and not only us but others as well. He actually seemed to be more or less the only one working at the hospital at that time of the night. The doctors seemed tired and slightly annoyed at the prospect of being disturbed at this hour and things moved VERY slowly. It took 8 hours to do a few tests and in the end they sent us home with a bunch of medication and a "don't worry". It turned out that they had completely misdiagnosed and unfortunately there was a reason to worry and we had to check-in to another hospital 24 hours later because things had gotten worse. More >>
