“This is another "Take me back to 1960s Egypt!" spot and the decor is unchanged. It's a strange place, one that has vibe, ambience inside as if you are sitting in a garden. Try the feta or the molokhaya. Also, the stuffed artichokes with meat and béchamel is a good appetizer. Also located in downtown Cairo. ”
