  • Fusion Restaurant Wassily wrote: Fusion, without a doubt the best Far-East restaurant you can ever visit here in Egypt, the mood, the interior design.. It feels like being in Asia. When I first went to Fusion it was at the Corniche el Nil el Maadi branch, but I live in Mohandissen, so when this branch opened I went to it and it was just as awesome as the Maadi one, plus on the Americana boat it has a view on the Nile. The décor was just awesome and the service just as good, I totally enjoyed it. The food was fresh and the service staff are super friendly. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • Tseppas M G lovesART wrote: Since 1912, Tseppas continues to be one of Cairo's most prominent bakeries and patisseries. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy a selection of oriental and western desserts, snacks and pastries from several Cairo locations. The colorful desserts, including cakes, chocolates and pastries, are showcased under clear glass counter tops. Service is always friendly and ready to assist with any order. Look to Tseppas for any last minute gift ideas or call ahead to order a specialty cake for weddings or other special events. More >>
  • Sedra Sweets wrote: In the recent years, Sedra became one of the best patisseries. Sedra sells very similar products to another very well known patisserie in Heliopolis but with huge difference in prices. The cakes, tarts, gateaux and the oriental sweets are always fresh as well as delicious. In Ramadan for example, you can spend more than half an hour trying to buy oriental sweets because of the large number of customers. The staff there are very professional and are being supervised regularly so you can barely have problems with them there. For example, one day I went there in Ramadan & ordered gateaux soiree. Due to the large number of customers at that time, the worker chose everything without giving me the chance to select. After he had finished, I objected to some of the selections, his supervisor ordered him to change the whole pack according to my choice. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Spectra Restaurant & Cafe Rofa wrote: Very nice place to spend time in and have big tasty meals. I visited the place many times.. and most of these times the working team was helpful and welcoming. The portions are always so big.. we always take the left over home for another meal. The dishes we like are the chicken cream soup, spectra nachos, chicken creaser salad and for the main dish grilled fillet and country chicken and the dessert is always the cheese lover cake. We also went to other branches and they are all worth the visit. More >>
  • Starbucks Wassily wrote: Starbucks cafe, an awesome place to hang out with your friends and have a taste of the greatest coffee and other hot/cold drinks you may want. Especially this branch inside city center is one of my favorite hangout places in Nasr city. The people there are friendly, the tables itself has privacy so you can feel safe while sitting there enjoying your time with your friends. The menu and the prices is a whole other story. The variety between the drinks you can order is just mind blowing and the prices are the same. Never had but great fun in Starbucks City center. More >>

Clubs

  • Tree Club soliman wrote: It's a good place for children to play. It has some games. They have billiards tables and bumper cars game. The tickets are really cheap. It has a kindergarten so you can leave your children there while you are at work. But really it needs improvements, It could have been a better place if they take a good care of it. And it's location is in the middle of the town could be used more efficiently. More >>
  • Al Rehab Sporting Club besso wrote: One of the most modern clubs in Egypt...its interior buildings and swimming pools are very good.. It becomes one of the leading clubs in many sports worldwide More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Dream Park Mico wrote: It's the biggest fun park in Egypt. You can spend all the day in it without getting bored; I like to go to it with my friends from time to time to have fun & to change my routine. But the problem that it is getting very crowded in summer & vacations -:( More >>
  • International Park ahmedfk wrote: I have visited this park before and its really wonderful for spending time with your family in a relaxing place enjoying the trees and the natural air, it’s rare to find such a good park in Egypt where you can avoid the pollution of the streets of Cairo which is everywhere. So my advice is, if you want to spend time to make yourself relaxed and comfortable, the International Park is the best place to do that, and you can do it for a very cheap fee affordable to all, just 2 LE.

Cinemas & Theaters

  • 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 >>
  • Stars Cinema newtocairo wrote: My husband and I enjoy going to Stars Cinema Friday mornings, as the theater is empty. If you are like me and don’t like crowds, I recommend the 10:15 or 11:00am VIP showings. A VIP ticket is about 100 LE and you can select your own seat (only around 30 seats) and relax in a comfortable leather recliner! You can order lunch or dinner from a special menu and have it delivered to your seat while enjoying your movie. There is also a concession stand with popcorn and candy. The staff always prepares a fresh batch for us and it tastes just like it does in the states. Also, the bathrooms are very clean and modern. Make sure to bring a jacket, as the theater is freezing!

Fitness Centers

  • Gold's Gym fido wrote: I've been exercising at Gold's in Maadi since 1998, so fair to say it's a pretty good gym. The weight lifting equipment is good and relatively new. The music is always dependent on the front desk clerk's personal taste though ... in my case i sometimes have to listen to hip hop or rave music at 6 AM... not really my thing at 6 AM - management should agree on an appropriate type / selection of music for all times of the day and make certain that staff stick to their rules. The cardio equipment is on the older side and is not well maintained and the cardio built in TV screens are notoriously renown for not working ... when you step onto a cardio machine you never know what to expect ... screen may be burnt, volume not working, the channel you like to watch everyday is all of a sudden gone and nobody seems to understand how the satellite system works. They open very early and close very late which is good. On a final note, they could learn something about customer service; i go early in the morning and there are extra rooms such as the circuit room which i would like to use and when i asked if i could, the front desk clerk said "no". So i said "well why not?" so he said "because it's not open in the morning" and i replied "well i pay the same fees as others and i would like to use it too" ... anyway, a pointless discussion which did nothing other than irritate the heck out of me. In the end the clerk said "if you want to complain, write a complaint". More >>
  • Samia Allouba Gym, Dance & Fitness Center Rofa wrote: I went to the gym for training with my wife.. We enjoyed the experience.. We had a trainer for a starting program and for follow up. He was helpful and the reception staff were all friendly. The center is clean. The health club part is small but good. More >>

Spas

  • 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 >>
  • 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.

Doctors

  • Pain Clinic 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 >>
