We have just got back from the new Peking Chinese restaurant in Katameya downtown - they have moved from 7 stars mall.

anyway the food was great - lovely place to eat:clap2:

we also love the Italian at the JW Marriott and the Indian at the Karvin.

any recommendations of good places to eat

I find Thai Elephant in Zamalek to be pretty good. I like much of the Jo Sushi menu too. It's relatively cheap. The Maki is really good (especially Volcano maki) but the sashimi is not so much up to par. I got something at Aubergine resembling Weiner Schnitzel the other day that was one of the best meals I've had in Egypt. Still, that menu is also a little hit-or-miss.

These are all places I like to walk to from my apartment in Zamalek.

I haven't yet found a restaurant with a "go there, order anything off the menu, you'll love it" rating yet.

Thai Elephant is at the intersection of Mohamed Mazar and Ismail Mohammed. The ambience is great and the food and service are pretty good too.

I only go to Aubergine after 8 when the upstairs is open. But I like smokey loud bars, with good food. Those without are easy to find in Egypt and will be fine for me often. We may have a different taste when it comes to favorite spots.

Never smelled wet carpets there. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised, just because.
