Restaurants Eat Out

  • Pyramids Take Away meshmesh wrote: It is an amazing restaurant with the best offers ever, that place has the very best prices and the most delicious food ever, yet the fries are not always that good. But the food is clean and always fresh and tasty. They are open late so if you feel hungry at around 1 am or so just give them a call and you will not regret it. It is a very good place to order food from, fast delivery and amazingly respectful employees. It is located at the end of Mostafa el Nahas street, the best place to order food for anyone who lives in this area. More >>
  • Brioche Doree Family man wrote: I was in Dandy mall and noticed that there was a new restaurant open on the ground floor near the main entrance. They also have their main place on the first floor just up the escalator. Brioche is more well known for their pastries and croissants rather than regular lunch food and I think with our order this was also the case. I had the tuna sandwich on rustique bread which is the kind of bread with a crunchy outer and rich inner filling. The fillings were good although in my opinion too sparse. With this great bread you need a richer filling so they should add more tuna, salad, onions and tomatoes otherwise the bread becomes too overpowering. My wife had a chocolate croissant and based upon the fact that she ordered another one to share with our daughter I am assuming it was delicious. The coffee was ok but not that great actually. I have definitely had better in Cairo and the service was polite but slow. I would recommend going there for dessert or a small piece of pastry but for lunch there are better options available.

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • El Domiaty Pastry 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 >>
  • Abdel Rahim Koueider omneya wrote: One of the best places I have ever been to, it is very quiet and beautiful place. This place is characterized by its desserts & ice cream beside that they serve nice pizza, croissant, and also fresh juices. There are tables inside and outside the shop, you can take your order wherever you prefer, its prices from moderate to expensive to fit every budget, so if you want to have a nice day at the end of the month you can go to Abdel Rahim Koueider.

  • Costa Coffee ahmedfk wrote: Costa Cafe chain is very popular in Egypt and it succeeded in attracting a large number of customers, that's because of the good service it provides and the good food and drinks as well. They have a diversity of sandwiches; they have beef, chicken and seafood that are served in a very reasonable price. Costa Cafe has many branches in the main areas in Alexandria and Cairo. The cafe provides Wi-Fi network which is really good. Another thing which made this place special is the drinks it serves as they have all kinds of juices and coffee. More >>

  • Ace Club Sha Sha wrote: Ace Club has the atmosphere of a pub with good food, good drinks and a nice crowd most of the time. Prices are very reasonable. There are pool tables and a couple of teams play from there in the BCA League. A nice place for a gathering- large or small- with the garden area available for large groups and a place for kids to play around. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Dream Park Wassily wrote: Dream park is the best place for entertainment!! With amazing games and hangout places, Dream Park is the dream place for every child, teenager and grown up. The biggest amusement park in Egypt, on the road of faoyum, inside of another piece of dreams, is dreamland. My favorite food there is Ali baba fried chicken. As for the games, my favorite is the discovery. One of their newest games and of course, everyone’s favorite, the rocket.. el saroo5 and of course the very scary and heart-taking, Death train.

  • Family Land Sha Sha wrote: Family Land does have a lot to offer. Some shopping, kids activities and rides, restaurants, a ladies only weight loss center and last, but not least, the cinema. Movies shown represent both Arabic and English titles, as first run as can be expected here. The theaters are reasonably sized; the larger ones can get kind of loud when crowded. Cold drinks, popcorn, snacks (the usual stuff) are available in the lobbies. More >>

  • Renaissance Wonderland Cinema momo wrote: You are a fantastic cinema. You exist in a place where after one is very tired from playing, he can watch a movie to end his wonderful day with an amazing film. Your chairs are very comfortable. They make one feel relaxed while watching the movie. Your system is very nice. Also, your employees are very helpful and respect your clients very much. Your ticket price is very suitable for all people and your services are very good. I love going to you with my friends. It is very interesting. 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 >>


  • 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 >>
  • 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.

  • 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 >>


  • Dr. Hisham Atta Family 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. More >>
  • Dr. Sherif Hamza md wrote: Dr. Sheriff is a good surgeon, however, he did a surgery to my mother and during the surgery burned her, third type burn, and released her from the hospital without telling us. This type of doctors should not practice. I will not recommend him to anyone. More >>

Hospitals & Medical Centers

  • American Hospital ZAk wrote: My wife tried this hospital, giving birth to our son, it was recommended by the family doctor. The hospital is clean, the staff are efficient and well trained, the prices are above the average although it's very reasonable comparing to the quality. A few downsides of the hospital are: some rooms are not the best conditions depends on the class you've requested, also, the location might be a downside, unless you live in Heliopolis or/and in New Cairo. The upsides: the price are very reasonable, the staff doctors are great, whether the delivery staff or the follow up doctors. Also, the children’s follow-up unit is great. They instructed my wife on how to deal with her first child in a very professional way. Overall highly recommended. More >>
  • 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 >>
