The food at the restaurant was not bad but as with everything else in the Sofitel, staff seemed uninterested and were not at all attentive. It is a terrible thing to say, but the truth is that I have received a far better service at fast-food restaurants. I will not eat here again.

Best location especially the outdoor tables in a sunny winter day.food and service are very good but the price is steadily increasing every couple of months without any justification

Located in the middle of the Nile, Kebabgy can easily claim to have one of the best, if not the best, view among restaurants in Cairo, luckily, the food rises up to the venue! Sitting literally by the Nile, we were served freshly baked traditional Egyptian "baladi" bread along with salads. We ordered lentil soup as appetizer which was promptly... More

I have been to Kebabgy for lunch. The nile view seating outside is more than stunning. Mrs. Amel who made for me the reservation and escorted us to the table was courteous and very nice. The food itself was average but the meal was overrrrrrr pricedddddd compared to the quality of food offered. The oriental band there played very nice... More

Kebabgy is a must visit! Located at the Sofitel El Gezirah hotel on the south end of Gezira (Zamalek) island, you must sit outside at Kebabgy and enjoy the panoramic Nile views. Don't bother with the entrees, focus on ordering lots of hot and cold mezza to enjoy with their amazing homemade homestyle Egyptian 'balady' bread and then order some... More

We were disappointed with this restaurant. Lovely setting with gorgeous views of Nile. Food was poor and nothing special. Customer service was frustrating. We felt meal was overpriced and did it reflect the positive reviews we had read. “I don't like” I don't like either the food ,nor the staff , neither their attitude , no customer service at all...

Kebabgy is located at the Sofitel hotel. You can sit inside or outside. The outside seating offers a great view of the Nile river. The food is generally very good. The fresh baked bread is excellent. The service is generally good except during Ramadan where the Iftar dinners can get very crowded and the waitstaff have trouble keeping up.

This is a "bubble" restaurant, right on the edge of three or four stars. The view and the service pushes it over in the positive direction. The staff managed to remember a food allergy and provide a dessert that met the requirement without a second prompting. The group dinner we had included all the standard Egyptian food items, and all... More
