The Moghul Room Tips (4)

Moghul Rooms: indian experience

I know it s a posh and fancy restaurant but it s not that expensive!I had a fantastic dinner at the indian restaurant, i haven t tried the other one.However the food was not unbeatable , it was more the ambience, the candeliers and the live music, soft but touching, that made it a great dining experience.

Al Rubayyat: Exotic Food and Entertainment

The Al Rubayyat at the Mena House Oberoi is a delight not to be missed for many reasons.

The restaurant is situated in the old part of the hotel and the surroundings are both palatial and exotic.

Service is good (though not excellent, as one might expect it to be) and the floor show is spectacular. The show starts late, so if you are dining, book for a late sitting. As I recall, the floor show did not start until about 10pm.

The food was very good indeed - perhaps some of the best I had eaten in Egypt. The surroundings are very upmarket, the settings silver service - but something is missing, and I cannot quite put a finger on it.

When I checked into the hotel I asked to make a reservation at this restaurant, as I had read that it could be difficult (even for residents) to get a reservation here. The supposedly helpful desk cleark indicated that there was no need for residents to reserve, even for the assurance of a good table. This was very poor advice indeed. On the night we sought to dine here (our last night in the hotel and in Cairo) a medical convention had booked most of the tables in the restaurant and we were refused a sitting on arriving there ( I must remind you that on checking the previous night I was advised that no reservationwas required). When I protested they found me a table behind a pole, making it difficult to see the floor show. Thankfully those at a neighbouring table vacated early, and we could clearly see the floorshow when we moved to their seats.

yes I'd go again, but I'd book early.

Really wonderful food. The butter chicken is sublime.. Really wonderful. To top it off; Live Music! The singer was incredible and very authentic - just as the food was. Doesn't matter where you stay - (I wouldn't stay at the Mena.) YOU SHOULD EAT HERE.
