Dusit Thani is less than 10 minutes by Uber. A bit on the pricey side, the Benjarong restaurant offers authentic Thai cuisine. Make sure to book in advance and ask about dress code. A less expensive option but competitively similar is Bua Khao in Maadi (about 45 minutes Uber ride) http://www.dusit.com/dusitthani/manila/dining/benjarong/

Fresh, tasty seafood cuisine. Nice sitting area upstairs. The restaurant is located in Concord Plaza on the Teseen Street - about 10 mins away by Uber. We recommend a fish called "Aros" which is the equivalent of Sea Bass to be grilled (singaree method). Also fried calamari is a definite must try.

One of the populars restaurants in New Cairo to grab a steak ! Appetizers are high on the must try list . Beware though, it is on the pricey side - for Egypt. If you can manage, make your way there during weekdays to avoid crowds. Prior reservation is required.

If you enjoy Lebanese food, this is a good stop. Strongly recommend the Chicken Tawook and Fatoush salad. Beirut restaurant has two branches within New Cairo. One is 5 minutes away located in Cairo Festival City's "The Village" food court. And the other is located in Rehab about 20 minutes away. We recommend the one in CFC by the water fountain. Good food, good service and good view. Beirut Restaurant also offers breakfast.

Great first stop to get a taste of Syrian food. Al Aseel is known for its 'Shawerma'. Pick your choice between chicken or meat wrappers. Also recommend their roasted chicken. It can be ordered in a meal box along with fries.

At first glance, the sitting spells less than impressive. But once you have ordered and tasted ... The burgers here are larger than life, heaped with fixings of onions, lettuce and beef bacon- the Western bacon BBQ burger is a messy challenge, while the colossal burger is so enormous only the very brave should try finishing it. They do serve breakfast but cant say much as we have never tried it ourselves. This is one of the few restaurants that does not factor in a service charge, so be sure to add in the extra tip yourself.

One of the wonders of the world! Strongly recommend arranging a guide to accompany you. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giza_pyramid_complex
Built between 1356 and 1363 by the Mamluk ruler Sultan Hassan, the scale of the mosque is so colossal that it nearly emptied the vast Mamluk Treasury. Historians believe that the builders of this mosque may have used stone from the pyramids at Giza. The Mosque of Sultan Hassan is one of the largest mosques in the world, measuring 150m in length and covering an area of 7,906 sq m. Its walls rise to 36m and its tallest minaret to 68m. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosque-Madrassa_of_Sultan_Hassan

When the Ottoman Muhammad 'Aliassumed power of Cairo in the 1800s he had all the Mamluk buildings of the Citadel razed and the complex entirely rebuilt. The mosque is classically Turkish in style, reflecting its Ottoman origins. The cascading domes, slender minarets, constellation of hanging globe lamps, richly decorated ceiling and spacious interior all recall the great mosques of Istanbul.

The Hanging Church is also referred to as the Suspended Church or Al-Moallaqa. It is called the Hanging Church because it was built on the southern gate of the Roman Fortress. Logs of palm trees and layers of stones were constructed above the ruins of the Roman fortress to be used as a fundament. The Hanging Church is a unique church and has a wooden roof in the shape of Noah’s ark. From the 7th century to the 13th century, the Hanging Church served as the residence of the Coptic Patriarch. Al-Moallaqa has witnessed important elections and religious ceremonies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hanging_Church

One of the world's greatest monuments to medieval warfare. Resembling a typical early medieval fortress, with large imposing gateways, towers and high defending walls, the Citadel is one of Cairo's main attractions and probably the most popular non-pharaonic monument in the Egyptian capital. The prominent fortress houses three mosques - of which the impressive Mohamed Ali Mosque - a carriage museum, a military museum, and a garden museum, just to name a few, and they are all worth a visit.
