    Loved the food and the atmosphere. It was the first time I'd tried fatah, and I loved it. The service is inconsistent though. Was great the first time, poor the second.

    Great Egyptian food and atmosphere. The shisha smoke-filled room, elaborate decor, friendly staff, and classic Egyptian cuisine will make you feel like you stepped back into Egypt’s glorious past.

    Haven't been in over 8 years.. Food still tastes great but service is terrible. My favs: Besara & sharkaseya. Most other appetizers are good but I would avoid the sausages and the veal liver ...

    Great authentic setting, tasty Egyptian cuisine. Sharkaseya is a must try, sha'reya with moza bettelo is recommended. Stuffed pigeon was basic. Serves drinks.

    Hate parking in Zamalek? Abou El Sid has a vallet so you don't have to worry about finding a parking. I even leave my car there when I'm going to close by places like Diwan.

    I’ve been shocked, once I entered the staff were fighting with a small family; children with an old man; and they called’em by inappropriate names. They were bad, so I felt it would be unsecured for’s

    Nice decoration, bad service, wasn't impressed by the food, my expectations were high as I've heard they serve the best Egyptian food in Cairo. For me It's a 1 time experience.

    Horrible! Spicy sausages were good, the other 6 dishes terrible. Meat tasted old, sauce like liquid plastic. No word about the minimum order. Our Egyptian friends were shocked how this place declined.

    Great food!!! Terrible service. The waiter asked my girlfriend not to get to close to me and even asked her to move on the opposite side of the table so she would not be too close to me
