Ad Duqqi Restaurants

  • Enormous helpings and so delicious

    You could easily walk past this cafe, as you enter through a small gap in a hedge. On one side of the path are French Cafe murals and the restaurant inside is fantastic. Long windows run the length of one wall with a view onto the cafe scenes. Another wall also has similar scenes . Comfortable banquettes face glass topped wooden tables, and the...

  • traditional Egyptian food

    This new restaurant has a local flavour. The seating is low with low tables that I found awkward because my legs couldn't get under the table. The decor is brown and cream chequered, the ceiling brown imitation mashrabiya. Carpets are on the floor and the waiter wears local dress.The clientele when we were there was almost equal local and...

  • Steak Bar

    This is another new restaurant in Michel Bakhoum St , Duqqi. You enter through an old-looking wooden door and follow a black brick road. On the red 'pavement' are tables with black glass tops, and chairs with red covers. The waiters wear black with red aprons. The walls are decorated with posters, traffic lights, and house numbers.The menu is very...

  • coffee shop

    This branch of the international chain of coffee shops is new in Duqqi. On the ground floor are 3 or 4 tables looking out on to busy Mossadek Street. We sat here, but there is more upstairs. It is clean and new and the service is good. A few newspapers are placed in a rack for customers to browse through.Opening hours are from 7am -2am I had the...

  • Italian, anyone

    This is a new restaurant opened in 2004. It is stylish and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Service is good- but so far there are few customers. We were given a free drink and free dessert to encourage our custom.The food was plentiful, and we were given a doggy-bag to take home what we couldn't finish.Although a bit expensive by Egyptian...

  • typical Egyptian dessert

    UPDATE : In June 2008 on our return we found the cafe had closed down, and had been replaced by another establishment. The restaurant is one of those dimly lit local cafes where people meet to play board games like draughts and backgammon, smoke shisha, and have a snack. The smell of the shisha is attractive, if you like it, or else can be a turn...

  • shawarma wraps - yummy

    This is a shawarma place where you can either have a takeaway or a plate. It can be quite busy so that you may have a short wait, as it is very popular because the food is so good.. The chicken shawarma is tastly, but I think I prefer the beef shawarma, which comes with some pickles and just has the edge over the chicken. Both are good and come in...

  • pasta, pizza and plenty more

    This restaurant is usually very busy at lunchtime and in the evenings. It is not brightly lit inside , but has a lot of interesting old prints, objects and posters on display. The service is very good, and the helpings are enormous, and very rich. I've tried many of the main dishes and salads [Greek salad and also the tomato and mozarella salad]....

  • Passez moi le menu

    Very classy restaurant above its own patisserie and ice cream shop.The basket of different breads keeps you going while you wait for the meal to arrive. Well worth waiting for too.There is so much to choose from, all of it excellent. Onion soup and veal escalopeIt just is good.


Ad Duqqi Shopping

  • fruit and veg

    The area in Duqqi called Suliman Gawher is a typical local market. Fruit, vegetables and fish were on sale the Ffriday afternoon we ventured in. There are narrow roads and old buildings, but the produce sellers sit on the ground or on old chairs and display their goods. Fish sellers have carts, and cats congregate in expectation.Prices are a...

  • Bahsyer

    I found this shop by coincidence in 2002 and ever since I shop for all my souvenirs and home accessories from it.I believe it has better prices than most touristic places(such Khan El Khalil)though the prices are fixed,,but it`s very well priced,it serves locals not tourists only.It has another branch in Sharm El Shiekh too. I bought...

Ad Duqqi Warnings and Dangers

    by uglyscot Updated Jul 31, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There has been so much development and so many changes in the past few years. Many of the original villas are being demolished and high rise apartments are going up. This is because of the influx of professional Iraqis leaving their country for asylum abroad.
    Shops and business seem to change every few months. We used to get great Chinese takeaways from a cafe called Panda. A year later it was a shop selling fancy dress costumes. In the 6 months I was away [Aug 2006- Feb 2007] it had turned into a Mobile Phone shop. This is normal. My favourite hairdresser's is now a pharmacy. A good stationer's is now a painting and decorating shop.

    So tips may become obsolete very quickly.
