If you love indian food, this place is a must.... Oct 22, 2009
We arrived around 6pm without a reservation. The front doorman laughed at us when we explained this to him, but he still pointed us to the restaurant to try. We walked in and the place was packed even though nearby restaurants were empty with waiters trying to convince people to come in. We decided we would try since places aren't that busy without being great.

We checked in with the head waiter. He told us he would try to squeeze us in within a couple of hours and told us to have a drink in the lounge while we waited. We ordered our first drink and started listening to the harp player and immediately the head waiter came and got us. We finished our drinks and went and got our seats in the restaurant.

It took us a few minutes to decide on what we wanted, but once we got it the food and wine quickly started coming out of the kitchen. The waiters plated it for us at the table and were constantly keeping an eye on us. Top quality service.

The atmosphere was good. It is a small restaurant and there was a live 3 person band playing some music not too quiet and not too loud. Very great atmosphere.

Now for the food. We had one lamb, one beef, and one chicken dish. Some rice, naan, and desert. Everything we ate was the best we've ever tried. The only indian restaurant we can compare this to in terms of quality was ViJ's in Vancouver and they have a completely different style of cooking.

If you love indian food, don't miss this place.

This Indian restaurant is in the Mena House Oberoi Hotel at Giza.

Now, if you visit Egyptin the summer, allow me to say, no matter how good your physical constitution is, a day going through pyramids, street markets, anything in 45 degrees Celsius heat will sap any energy out of you. As such, if you return to your hotel, you would certainly not want to venture anywhere to find food.

Thankfully, for us who stay at Mena House Oberoi, there is this particular Indian restaurant in it which serves very delicious fare. Ignore the fact that it is definitely pricier than what you find outside, at the end of a Egyptian summer day, any food near you is good, and any good food near youseems to becomethe most delectable dishes fit for the gods.

This restaurant is highly recommended in its own right, but it is especially good for dining after a tough day of travel.
