Japanese Food in Heliopolis

The best Japanese food in Heliopolis area. The place is very nice with its far eastern interior. The location in City Stars complex is good for families in Eastern Cairo.

We went for my birthday and it did not disappoint! The saki was smooth, the rolls were delicious and the service was on-point. Don't miss the spicy tuna rolls or the salmon sashimi! Expensive, but good.

In the basement of the Intercontinental, just behind the grand staircase, there is a small entrance that leads to a great experience. You have to *want* to go to Shogun, because on your way, you are offered no less than four alternative dining experiences. I ate at the sushi bar, and ordered the Kobe (15 pieces of mixed sushi and... More

The food was amazing, the chef did know how to entertain his guests at the table, only downfall was that the portions were too big to be able to enjoy the meal

We had 6 pm reservations and were seated right away. The place only had 1 other family when we went in but was filling up as we ate. Eileen was super attentive to our needs. She even let me try the miso soup and brought out the regular "just in case". My kids wanted to try the marble soda and... More
