Notable for its art gallery and fine Asian decor, the food at this tourist trap is overpriced. Come for the decor and its contemporary art exhibits, which change monthly. Tourists pile in to sit at widely-spaced tables in the wonderful carpeted dining area. Tapestries, mashrabiyya screens, elegant columns and a gurgling fountain add the finishing touches. A small gallery displaying contemporary work by local artists lines the entrance hallway. Touted as "Continental-Egyptian" cuisine, the menu offers little of the latter. The restaurant has a long-standing reputation for mediocre food, but few come here for the menu anyway. Alcohol is served.
