I don't think Buddha Bar is associated with this location anymore. It is just called The Bar now. Went on a Friday night, me and my two friends were the only ones there. we stuck around for an hour, but since one other group came, we left. The manhattan i ordered barely got the glass wet. Real disappointing.

Good setting, could add a cool Dj like Bushido in Bahrain? Food is good, service excellent? Wine list could be extended on more French wines

Nice typical Buddha bar offering nice sound and good view. At the moment quite empty as tourism seems very slow in Kairo. But nevertheless a nice place to be.

Having been to various Buddha Bar locations internationally, I was expecting a staple of quality. I found NEITHER at this Cairo outpost. There was LITERALLY NO ONE there on a Saturday night. I was incredibly confused. Then I realized, the in crowd had migrated to "Blue Jazz" a ship on the Nile that rocks the part all night long. Sorry... More

Went there with a colleague from work to relax and have some drinks and possibly dinner. The drinks were fine, but nothing extraordinary. We eneded up having dinner, in a completely empty restaurant with little atmosphere. No hype, no frills, just a normal Buddha Bar...

The location is nice , in a Nile island although was a bit of a drive to get there and many bottle necks in the way. The decoration and ambience is nice in the Cairo standards but not matching the other Buddha Bars in Bahrain and Dubai The wine list was rather poor with so many bottles out of stock... More

This is an iconic restaurant. We actually visited in March 2010, before all of the political turmoil. It was a beautiful restaurant with great drinks and music. The vibe is chic international jet set. The view of the Nile is mesmerising and can't be duplicated. Hope to go back someday.
