You come here for the grilled meats and the location! It's located right on the Nile, with beautiful views of the city. The food is excellent Egyptian fare of koftas, kebabs, and salads. The bread is made fresh, on site.

I stayed at Sofitel hotel so I automatically went to this restaurant when I arrived late night. The food was great and the seating was beautiful.

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.

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

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...
