Cairo 360

A lot of people think negatively about eating out in Ramadan, mainly because of the exaggerated prices. Some restaurants serve you the exact same dish, plus soup and a Ramadan drink, but add something like 100 EGP to the original price of the meal. This leads people to prefer eating at home rather than paying much more for what they’ll get. So, to those people, we say don’t despair, Cairo 360 is here with a solution, and we’re presenting you with 5 of the best restaurants that offer affordable Iftar in Ramadan.

This place serves up excellent Iftar dishes and the service is super friendly. Their prices are quite reasonable, especially since there are no service or tax charges.

For Iftar and Suhour, you can enjoy a different ambiance and good food. Their drinks are also quite refreshing, we especially liked their sobia drink.

Avitchii: Unique Decoration in Open-Buffet Iftar

Located in Sky Center Ville, Avitchii looks like a small shop, but inside, things are much more spacious, and much livelier. Their decorations are quite interesting, and you can enjoy normal tables, high tables, or open air seating.

Avitchii serves up a diverse open-buffet option that is sure to fill you up with delicious food, all for a reasonable price.
