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

Best lebanese restaurant all over egypt - if u really looking to eat at a nice special place - u must go there! Main dish is the best ever - where taste is incomparable - chef uses most fresh tasty ingredients. Try it once & u will not forget it.

We loved the cozy setting and good service. Food was delicious. We had ordered fattoush, falafel and chicken fateer. Complementary drink after the dinner was amazing. We will definitely go there again.
