The newly‑opened Egyptian‑themed Pyramisa puts a spin on multi‑concept restaurants by housing a dance studio, bar and restaurant all under one roof. So when we came here one Sunday evening, we were full of curiosity. Walking in, the establishment was empty and we were greeted with a blank stare by a lone waiter with whom a stilted exchange transpired. “Are you open for dinner?” we asked. “Yes.” “Can we get a table for two?” “Uh, ok,” came the reply. We proceeded to seat ourselves and soon settled for the appetizer of mix hot platter ($20), which comprised chicken wings and three other unidentifiable items. When we asked the waiter to explain the dish to us, he just shrugged and said he did not know anything. After sending him off to find out more, we got our answers. One was the sambousek, which was pastry stuffed with feta cheese; the next was the fattayer, a spinach samosa; and finally the falafel, nuggets of deep‑fried chick peas. We didn’t really enjoy any of them, including the chicken wings, which were bland. Our main, the meshawi, a mix of grilled lamb, chicken cubes, beef and prawn; was not too impressive either. While the pieces of meat had been heavily marinated, they were neither juicy nor tasty. The dessert, the uma Ali baked bread pudding ($9.50), was the only decent part of our meal—it was sweet and smooth, with bits of raisins and what tasted like dried fruit. The food could definitely be better, but unless the service improves by leaps and bounds, we won’t be back.
