It was my second time in 10 years going there. It is a nice place to stop by and have tea or coffee. One thing i didnt like about it, it is overpriced.

We went there with our friends, it was amazing atmosphere with Arabian theme. You will have the best shisha and drinks with perfect service. Not advised for kids cause of the smoke and the band is good not perfect.

Hi, I believe it's open all days from 9 AM till 3 PM. Just try to avoid Fridays, if possible, for i'm not 100% sure it's open at the same hours. You pay a ticket of 2-3 pounds for Egyptians.
