Restaurants Eat Out

  • Fattoush Restaurant Wassily wrote: Well, I always go to dandy mega mall and of course every time I go, I have to go to the food court and chose something to eat. So when I smelled the food of fatoush when I was passing by, I decided to eat there. I took the menu and I ordered shawrma sandwich. It was delicious and incredible. But the main problem in food court that you have to serve yourself. The prices are reasonable and affordable. I enjoyed it there so I went there again to eat kofta and shish kebab. It was delicious and amazing. They serve Fantastic Lebanese food. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • Turkish House - Turkish Sweets themind wrote: "Baklava Kings", yes this is one word to describe them as they serve more than 16 kinds of Baklava: one for each kind of nuts. Some are small and some are the usual square size. But don't be fooled thinking it's just about size. They do taste different. Also, you can try their chocolate Baklava for a new taste, it's not better than the original but it's new. Cream Baklava, however, is the best for my taste (the big sized one) and its a must try if you buy from there. Of course there's all other kinds of oriental desserts like Basboosa with or without nuts, different kinds of Konafa, etc., but they're nothing out of the ordinary. I didn't like their Basboosa, but Konafa is good. All in their entire best thing is Baklava followed by Konafa. Prices are a bit higher than expected (since its a small, not so famous shop), but it's unique and deserves it for the quality they present. So no worries there, as it’s the ordinary prices found in Maadi. Tip: they make the rarely found Cheese Konafa, but it's a special order (not to be found ready in their store), so you'd have to request it before you go there. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Testa Rossa Cafe Mohamed Salah wrote: A nice cozy lounge within the complex of El Salam hotel. A good place to have a Shisha and a cafe latte or some soft drink. The nice thing is that there is no minimum charge even at the weekends but the place gets crowded easily, so if you wanna have a nice seat on a comfy sofa then you should go before 7 PM. Not so fond about their service though. More >>
  • Costa Coffee AdoniS wrote: One of the most delicious coffee cups I have drunk in my life... I am talking about coffee latte... I didn't try the other coffee types yet because I can not stop myself to drink latte :) Besides, waiters are always smiling.. They have really good sweets.. The view is so nice.. More >>

Clubs

  • Ace Club newtocairo wrote: Ace Club has recently changed their lunch and dinner menu. The menu now features a delicious club sandwich served with chips and a selection of baked potato options. On Sundays and Wednesdays, try their homemade fire-oven pizzas for less than 35 LE. The pizzas take a while to bake, but are well worth the wait. On Mondays and Thursdays, try the chicken shawermas.

  • 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 >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Dream Park momo wrote: I love you so much because you are the only place in the world where I want to go when I want to have fun and spend a fantastic day cheering. All your games are fantastic and make me happy just seeing them. The rocket game is unbelievable and also the death train, wow. You have so many games that I can't finish them all. My family and I wait until a vacation day so that we can spend it at Dream Park. You are easy to reach. I am waiting for your new games, you are the best. More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • 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

  • Finesse Gym Sha Sha wrote: Finesse is a full-service gym focusing on helping women lose weight. It's the combination of available options that makes this place work. Body composition analysis, nutrition counseling, circuit training, personal training, vibrating plates, sauna and ultrasound sessions. The staff is well trained and the facility is for ladies only, a plus when you're trying to lose some pounds and maybe feeling a bit self-conscious. Membership prices are competitive and the location is great with lots of parking available. 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

  • Dr. Hisham 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 >>
  • 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

  • Dar Al Fouad Hospital Family man wrote: I have used Dar Al Fouad hospital a few times for their check up program. It is a whole day of tests where you get checked from head to toes. It's kind of like preventive maintenance for your health. The check up is not cheap (app. LE 4,500 for the day) and the biggest issue for me are the delays. The tests themselves are thorough and you get a complete medical file after app 14 days but most of the time you sit around waiting for a doctor to become available. The last time I had to go back after 1 week to do some additional tests and I was scheduled for 3 pm. At 5.30 pm I was still waiting and I ended up leaving without having the tests done as they kept telling me 5 more minutes for almost 2 hours. My time is as valuable to me as their time is to them. I have never understood why time management is not better enforced in many businesses. However the hospital is well equipped, clean and as I mentioned the tests are thorough. If they now could get their timings to match it would be great. More >>
