Restaurants Eat Out

  • Mei Shi Restaurant Mohamed Salah wrote: A disappointing experience is the least i could say, we went for this restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. It was 8 pm on a Friday night and the restaurant was almost empty just one table was occupied. The restaurant looks very basic and does not have any identity, it looks pretty much like a breakfast restaurant in a hotel where you go an eat from a breakfast buffet, with all these white round tables and green chairs packed next to each other, i would never think it is a Chinese restaurant by walking into it. Now let's get to the worst part, the food, it's bad and overpriced, you can order from both Mei Shi Chinese or Azure swiss restaurant, we ordered the starter combo (75 LE) whcih consists of some fired calamari, spring roles and chicken which was not better than frozen stuff that you get and cook at home, we also tried mozarella salad (50 LE) which was tasteless and came in a very small portion and dumplings soup... We ended up paying 260 LE... the best thing there was the bread which was so fresh. Did i mention that the stuff were not so nice too? they looked weird in a way or another. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • 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 >>
  • TBS - The Bakery Shop Family man wrote: I had heard about tbs from a friend who raved about their croissants so when I found myself in Zamalek in front of the bakery I just had to try it. I went inside the store and was immediately overwhelmed by a great variety of freshly baked products. Besides the warm croissants which were among the best croissants I have had here in Egypt I also bought several different types of bread and buns. I love bread but it has to be real bread. The rich bake soft stuff that you can chew even without teeth is not my idea of bread. Bread has to be crunchy from the outside and full of flavor from the inside. If it has grain and nutritious elements all the better. It not only tasted better but it is also much better for you. The bread from tbs is real bread. The kin of bread you crunch into and smile as the flavor fills your senses. tbs stands for The Bakery Shop or The Best Selection. Best croissants in Egypt. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Cilantro Wassily wrote: Cilantro Gam3et el Dowal is my favorite Cilantro of them all. It's cozy and friendly. Service staff is very friendly and helpful; they will always help you in anything you need. Menu is great with a lot of variety and it has the best value for your money. Place is clean, so you can eat and drink their with a clear mind about their hygiene. I have never had anything but a pleasant and joyful experience there. Totally recommended to anyone who has a great taste in coffee and needs an excellent place to enjoy his coffee and other awesome drinks. More >>
  • Cafe Supreme noha wrote: Cafe Supreme is an amazing coffee shop, with an elegant atmosphere, that is both sophisticated, yet friendly. The menu has a lot of variety items of all sorts, that would satisfy almost any taste. The dessert assortment is amazing, and the waffles are the best you'll ever taste in Alexandria. Staff working there is super friendly, and when asked for recommendations, they sure know what they are recommending. So either you want a nice cup of coffee and a snack, or you are aiming for a full course meal, Cafe Supreme is an excellent choice. More >>


  • Ace Club newtocairo wrote: ACE Club made recent changes to its menu, services and outdoor seating. A new chef was hired, so there is a new breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. A couple excellent additions include the Cobb Salad, ACE burger and club sandwich and Potato Skins served with sour cream, onions and cheese. There are new tables and more comfortable chairs in the outside area, as well as two new flat screen TVs. More >>
  • 25 January Village soliman wrote: Not the best but amazing place for weekend vacations in Ismailya. It's a quiet and clean place. Its location is a great advantage as there are lots of coffee shops in this area. I'm not sure if civilians can stay there, but if you have a relative or a friend that is a police officer, he may help you to reserve a room there. You will really enjoy your stay. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Al Azhar Park newtocairo wrote: This inner city manmade oasis boasts four five-star restaurants offering spectacular views and excellent cuisine. The Lakeside Café, overlooking Mohamed Ali's mosque, offers light meals, snacks, desserts and coffee. The Ayubid Cafe takes in the entire expanse of foliage and greenery serving café-style food. Alain LeNotre lives up to its Parisian tradition of fine pastries, adding an oriental touch of Lebanese dishes and the panorama of Old Cairo. The more formal Citadel View Restaurant specializes in Oriental cuisine served ala carte or buffet style. Service in all venues is polite and professional. More >>
  • Al Azhar Park medo wrote: it has a great view you can see most of old cairo you can see salah el den castle , old mosques and if you go at night you will see a horrible view it will be with spcial light you will feel as if you are in el moqttam. and it is so cheep to go there you have to pay only a ticket for 5 L.E and i think it is just to keep their services such cleaning and this is the most thing i like there anyway if you want to get rest and have something to eat or drink there are many cafe shops and a wonderful restuarant with a view as if you are inside a lake it is an artificial lake and by the way their food is great . but i think it has something missing i wish to find it an amusement park for the kids as i have a daughter now :) and i like about al azhar park too the security there they help you anytime because the park is wide and keeping eyes on children too i think they have a great management their.

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Galaxy Cinema Wassily wrote: Cinema Galaxy is the real home of the best movies ever... with a great price for the 10 am and 1 am sessions and 30 L.E for other sessions, with sessions up till 1:00 am. It's a great place to enjoy your favorite new movies once they are released in Egypt. The cinema itself is organized, with a great cafeteria where you can buy your favorite snack for the movie... POPCORN and other products. The Cinema halls itself are very clean and very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and they are always happy to help you with any problem you may have. The sound isolation is very well designed (since I am an architecture student, I pay attention to these things) so you don’t feel echo or sounds from another movie next to you. One of the best Cinema places in Egypt. More >>
  • Golden Stars Cinema Mohamed Salah wrote: Well i think its the best cinema because it offers the best experience. first no one under 18 allowed... So there are no kids in the cinema! AMAZING!! The seats are so comfortable and the spacing between them is more than enough even for a chubby person... I have to say that if i want to go to cinema i don't just check for the movie names, i check for the movies that are being displayed in the golden stars cinema. More >>

Fitness Centers

  • Fibers Club Family man wrote: I have been a member of Fibers now for 2 months and let me start off by saying it is a good gym. The equipment is very nice and they have lots of cardio machines (most of their equipment is from the brand TechnoGym). It is a brand new club and it shows that everything is still new. They have spent quite a lot of money on the decorations but they skimped on some areas which shouldn't make that much of a difference for example the garbage bins they have set up through out the gym. Most of them are already broken because they are of poor quality. If you spend millions on a gym then spend the last few thousand on decent garbage bins. The downside is that it has a low ceiling and the view from the gym to the outside is not very inspiring. All of the cardio equipment has built in entertainment which is nice and they have a good selection of app. 20 TV channels with Eng and Arb programs. Remember to bring your earphones. Because the gym is still relatively new it is still nice and empty so you can get a good workout done without waiting for the machines to become available. They have a small pro shop where you can buy supplements and Cafe Greco has a tiny branch inside the gym but a recommendation would be to offer protein shakes instead of cake or coffee. All in all one of the better gyms in Egypt. More >>
  • Worlds Gym besso wrote: I work out there...it is awesome....They offer a perfect atmosphere for exercising...i just hope if they open much earlier so people can go to practice before work. 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 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 >>


  • El - Ezaby Pharmacies fido wrote: El Azaby pharmacies is among the best pharmacy brands in Egypt. They are well stocked with both local and imported products (imported products can be very pricey, if you are new to Egypt, do know that the made in Egypt version is usually just as good for a lot less money). Conveniently, El Azaby deliver 24/7 for free. 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 >>
  • 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 >>
