Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • Fino Bakery Sha Sha wrote: Fino Bakery has lots of great breads and rolls, along with many delicious cakes, pies and other baked sweets. Their cheesecakes are absolutely awesome! Everything is fresh daily and there's a small cafe upstairs where you can enjoy a coffee with something delicious to eat. And it's easy to find with plenty of parking. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Grand Cafe' Mahy wrote: Any time of the year, Grand Cafe is an exquisite place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the Nile scenery, especially at sunset. The Cafe has a modest menu of traditional Arabic food, but I usually don't eat there. I go with friends, and watch felucas sailing on the Nile. It makes a great place for a pre-dinner drink. Spring through Fall the cafe is mostly an open air terrace with comfortable tables and booths. This place is popular with expats living in Maadi (the expat center of Cairo), as well as with tourists.

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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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 >>

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 >>
  • Eve's Gym wrote: Eve’s gym is a relatively small gym for women only. My wife has joined this gym only two months ago. Eve’s Gym actually was opened around 3-4 years ago, it has a good reputation but is not famous as other gyms some of which were opened later than Eve’s. It is located in a street parallel to the Military Academy where most of Heliopolis residents use to go jogging daily (a good location to attract customers). The most unique thing about Eve’s gym is that Music is not allowed there, a benefit my wife really appreciated. Eve’s gym staff are all females even the owner. They are all friendly. At Eve’s, the trainees’ are all supervised by professional trainers at all times. Eve’s provide machines exercises, steaming, and aerobics. The subscriptions’ fees are lower than other well known gyms. The opening hours from 07:00 am to 10:00 pm. 7 am is great for working women or those who have children at school but 10:00 pm is very early and does not suit most of the trainees especially in summer time. My wife tried hard with them to extend their working hours but they refused because the trainers are leaving far and they must leave at 10:00 pm so that they can arrive at their homes at around 11:30 – 12:00 at midnight.

Spas

  • 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.

Pharmacies

  • Haytham & Salah Pharmacy Sha Sha wrote: This is a really convenient pharmacy for shopping if you're at the Grand Mall. It's quite large and has just about everything you'd expect to find in one of the pharmacy chains in North America. The drug counter has knowledgeable staff who speak fluent English (if you require this) and offer advice and suggestions relative to what you're buying. More >>
  • Seif Pharmacies Wassily wrote: مجموعة صيدليات سيف مجموعة كبيرة منتشرة في كل مكان وبصراحة مش بالضرورة أشترى منها الأدوية لما اكون محتاج كنت بأشترى منها أو من اى صيدلية قريبة من خط سيرى لحد ما أصيبت اختى بمرض خطير وكان الدكتور المعالج طلب لها نوع مسكن للألم ونوع تانى كالسيوم بمواصفات خاصة وطبعا بدأت رحلة العذاب مع المتوفر والغير متوفر واللف على كل الصيدليات اللي في طريقي واللي مش في طريقي لحد ما دخلت أحدى صيدليات سيف وهى اللي في شارع شبرا دخلت ومعايا الروشتة وأسم الأدوية المطلوبة والغريب أن الدكتورة قرأت اسم الأدوية وقرأت اسم الدكتور في الروشتة وأنا حسيت أنها بدأت تهتم وتسال عن حالة اختى ودة خلاني أحس بالإنسانية وفجأة قالت لي إن الأدوية المطلوبة غير متوفرة مما اصابنى بالإحباط لكن وجدتها تتكلم في التليفون بالفروع الأخرى وبتسال عن الأدوية المطلوبة لحد ما أكدت لي إن الأدوية موجودة فى فرع أخر وأما اذهب بنفسي لاستلامها من الفرع أو الحضور بعد ساعة لحين حضورها من الفرع , بصراحة أنا حسيت إن الدنيا لسة بخير لأن سعر الأدوية مش غالى وأكيد مكسبها مش كبير وأنها ممكن تقولى انها مش متوفرة وخلاص لكنها اهتمت وحاولت بجهد لتوفير الدواء والأكثر من كدة أنها نظمت معايا الجرعة المشتراة هاتخلص امتى واجى بعد أد ايه لشراء كمية أخرى لعدم انقطاع العلاج , الشكر والدعاء لها .

Doctors

  • 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 >>

Hospitals & Medical Centers

  • El Nil Hospital philipe wrote: Excellent hospital in comparison to other hospitals, private or governmental. I hope every hospital in Egypt is like this hospital. 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 >>
