Restaurants Eat Out

  • Mori Sushi Family man wrote: I recently had lunch at Mori Sushi in Downtown mall in Tagamoa Khames and as always Mori Sushi was a great experience. The outlet has just recently opened but their food is as always consistently good. We ordered a large variety of sushi, rolls, sashimi and everything I tasted was delicious. Unfortunately however there seems to be a trend to deep fry sushi now (which in my opinion kind of is an oxymoron - raw fried fish hmmm?) or add cream cheese to everything. As far as I know the Japanese are not big cheese eaters and it does not go well with Sushi. Despite my little pet peeve I found some really nice dishes and we all ate with good appetite. My kids like the salmon so we ordered lots of salmon rolls and salmon sushi whereas I like to experiment a bit more and ordered a variety of fish and combinations (not fried though or with cheese :)). It is relatively expensive so for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids you should expect to pay at least LE 500 but you eat healthy and the fullness feeling you get is light. Highly recommended More >>
  • BUAKHAO fido wrote: Bua Khao has been around for at least a decade now which says very much about its repeat business. It's a small restaurant with so so decor but with a certain charm serving traditional Thai dishes. They serve local beer and wine. The service is good and the food is served relatively fast ... so if you're hungry, there isn't much of a wait after you order. It's not the best Thai food I have had but the value for money at Bua Khao is bang on ... you can dine there for less than most Maadi restaurants of a similar caliber. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • Cakes House Marie Lou wrote: Egyptian friends knowing that I like pastries took me all the way from Maadi to Heliopolis to the Cakes House. I may like sweets but nobody likes them the way Egyptians do, the place is lined with counters full of cakes, pastries, cookies, tarts, candies there is even a section (albeit a very small one) for diet confections. Great place to get hostess gifts of chocolate, in boxes, baskets even as a bouquet made out entirely of chocolate. I ended up coming home with a luscious almond tart and a box full of arabic pastries, a whole lot of which I nibbled on the way. More >>
  • So Sweet soliman wrote: That's what I call a special pastry, may be it's not the best in Ismailyah, but it's really special because you will enjoy the great weather of Ismailya while enjoying a gateau piece :D The prices are really affordable. In my experience, we were five people and paid around 60 EGP for 6 gateau pieces and 6 cans. If you want a really amazing gateau, you may want to try "Zanobia". More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Rox Cafe Crinckle wrote: The place has a great Sheesha with a lot of varieties. I used to hang out there every day for four years, I guess. But I changed after they opened an underground space with a d-jay and some kind of Gulf stuff, so I quit. More >>
  • Grand Cafe' newtocairo wrote: The open-air atmosphere is what makes Grand Café such a popular restaurant. Grand Café offers several branches throughout Cairo. If you desire a Nile view, try either the Maadi or Giza locations. In Maadi (favored by expats and locals), enjoy lunch or dinner on a terrace by water and in Giza (favored by tourists), on the deck of the docked Americana boat. Choose from a delicious selection of shishas, mezzes (appetizers), grilled platters and fresh juices. More >>


  • Greek Club lovesART wrote: Traditional Greek bouzouki music, vintage decor and an outdoor patio accompany Greek and Egyptian fare at this go-to tavern. This popular restaurant and bar is open to the public (entrance fee and minimum charge for non-members). Greek Club undeniably serves the best Greek salad in town, with crumbly feta cheese adorning a plate of fresh, colorful vegetables. The menu also features Egyptian standards like shish tawouk and kebabs served with generous portions of crispy fries. Local beer and wine served. Closed during Ramadan. More >>
  • 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 >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Kee Action Sports - Paint Ball Sal wrote: Great Sport and the best of all is the fact that they have 2 fields to play in. You must play the 2 fields or visit the new 3000 SQM New Field @ Al-Obour in Al-Obour City. More >>
  • 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 >>

  • Gold's Gym - Zayed Rofa wrote: A huge gym … Fully equipped. The therapeutic aqua pool is interesting, the Jacuzzi is large in size and it is very relaxing having a training session in it... Really worth a try. The gym allows privacy for female customers by having separate training room. The place has a nursery for customers with children which is really helpful for parents. Also one can meet a lot of celebrities in the gym. Trainers are professional, cooperative and follow up with customers by phone all the time. More >>


  • 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: 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 >>
