Paprika is a decades-old institution, dating back to the 1970s; a cozy restaurant overlooking the river Nile and serving oriental Egyptian cuisine along with international dishes. The restaurant feels upmarket and smart, with coveted views over the river and soft jazz music played in the background. The food is hearty and satisfying; try the mini kofta in Daoud pasha sauce or one of the house specialties, beef goulash. Finish your meal with a dessert, the om ali or the crème caramel are both fine choices.
