This restaurant has an Egyptian buffet with gourmet Egyptian food. It was very clean and beautifully presented. The food was delicious and there was a great variety. There were soups, breads, salads, sauces, dips, meats, and different types of rice. My husband loves the dessert bar. Staff was courteous, attentive, and accommodating to my allergy. They even provided me a grand fruit salad as my dessert option to accommodate my allergy. I highly rate this restaurant and it’s staff. I would return should I ever visit Cairo again!
