The Cairo Opera House opened in 1988 and was a gift from Japan.

Restaurants Eat Out

  • Little Buddha Mohamed Salah wrote: Little Buddha is the most elegant club and lounge in Hurghada, unlike other clubs they have a strict door policy about the dress code (dress to impress) and restricted couples only. The place inside is huge and usually full, so you don't get a table unless you have a reservation, otherwise you can stand there all night which i don't mind doing actually, who wants to sit in a club anyways? The nice thing about Hurghada night life is that they have special nights for each place all around the week, and Little Buddha is no exception. Wednesday is there Ladies night day, which means free entrance and 2 free drinks for ladies. Their ticket costs 100 LE including 1 drink, so if you go there with your girlfriend you will end up paying only 100 LE and getting 3 drinks! An even better offer they have, go there for lunch on a Saturday (from1 to 5 PM), get an appetizer, main dish, desert for 99 LE and get one free entrance ticket for the night! What a great offer they have... 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 >>
  • 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

  • Gelateria Roma Cafe momo wrote: Nice cafe and sitting there is very comfortable and enjoyable. You will like it very much. Although cafes have spread very much in Egypt; one can find them wherever he goes, but are a very few numbers of them that one likes and is keen on visiting it because he likes spending time there and Gelatria roma is one of them. You feel there that you are in the warmth of your own home and at the same time you are with your friends enjoying your time. The food there is very good and its quality is very high and the services are good and you feel respected from people working there. Also prices are very fine, not too expensive, although it is a high-class area. More >>
  • Gelateria Roma Cafe Mohamed Salah wrote: Roma cafe is not just another ordinary cafe in Nasr city. It's a place that has its culture and its nice crowd. This is one of the few places where you enjoy watching premier league and EUFA matches with really passionate people about football, you'll find that everyone has his team that he supports madly! At night, Roma has a nice relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy a shisha, grab a sandwich or pizza. There is an outdoor setting where there is no TV or Music so you just enjoy talking with your friends and indoors you can watch TV or listen to music. Their shisha (20 LE for fakher including Lay) is more than perfect; you get wel3a every 10 minutes without asking. Food is good as well, the bacon burger (50 LE) is a gourmet burger comes served with homemade fries, onion rings, fresh vegetables and coleslaw... Little bit expensive but well worth it. Service is good and fast, waiters are so friendly, they know customers by name and customers know them. Bathroom is clean. Parking could be a problem but they have a valet parking you can leave your car key to the "Sayes". 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

  • 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 >>
  • 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.

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Cairo Opera House Marie Lou wrote: I love going to the Opera House, although I'm sure it does not have the grandeur of its burned down predecessor the Opera House complex is most imposing. I check the English language news paper to see what's playing, when, as soon as I arrive in Cairo. So far I've seen the Cairo Opera House Company perform Aida (very good), a concert of ancient Arabic music (fabulous) and a Broadway, very, very, off Broadway I should think (meh). The acoustics are good, the view from every seat excellent and the lounge spacious. The only problem is to get out of the parking lot when the performance is over, try to park as close to the exit as possible. More >>
  • Kiroseiz Cinema soliman wrote: Good cinema but not the best. They do not show 3D movies. The location inside Kiroseiz resort makes it a perfect choice for resort residents. I watched "Sami Oxide El Carbon" there. It was funny and nice to have a cinema near your place of accommodation. They gave me a free ticket since I was a Kiroseiz three corners resort resident.

  • 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 >>

  • 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

  • As - Salam International Hospital Sherif wrote: This is one of the best hospitals in Egypt. It's very clean and has a parking for your car and is very organized. 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 >>
