Great Lebanese kitchen with excellent service and atmosphere, what I can say is that the taste was really authentic. The only problem is that they don't have any more branches....

Probably because it is in what used to be the top hotel in Egypt. But in terms of food nothing special at all, and I can name 4-5 Lebanese restaurants in Egypt that would serve more tasty food. Needless to say that it is even more expensive than Fayrouz and Taboula which are also in 5 star hotels. Wouldn't go... More

Sabaya is actually one of the best if not the best Lebanese restaurants in Cairo. The food is typical and so delicious, the ambiance is classy and comfortable and the hospitality is great. I have to say that this place gives a memorable dining experience and I highly recommend.

Staff here were so attentive, looking after us for the entirety of the evening, including realising that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary so brought over a cake with candle. Food was lovely, great range of hot and cold mezze, chicken livers in pomegranate sauce were especially good! Seafood mains were fresh and great portions. Will definitely return.
