Sabaya may be rooted in Lebanese tradition, but Chef Nasser Makhoul is willing to branch out with contemporary flair. Mezzas are the magic of the menu, with hot and cold options including Kebbe Nayye, Stuffed Vine Leaves, Hommow Bil Awarma, Makanik and Cheese Manaqish. In accordance with Lebanese custom, you’ll be brought to the lounge for after-dinner tea, sweets and conversation.Location: In the Semiramis InterContinental Cairo Hotel - 2nd level Services: Lunch | Dinner

The food was good but not extra ordinary. If you are staying at the Hotel, then try it. No need to make a special trip. Do not order fish as it was not worth it. I have had better Lebanese food for a much better price.

One of the best places to have fine dining at. Service is amazing and waiters are cheerful and always friendly. Every time I went there, they always offered us desserts for free complimentary from their side. I highly recommend it.
