I had a dinner with a friend and we picked Osmanly. My dinner experience was amazing and I felt they gave me a personal treatment with the Maîrte D' attending to us and making sure we get a full understanding of the menu and the special dishes. Compliments from the chef kept pouring as we were dinning, and the food... More

We found the food very tasty and authentic. The appetizers were in particular flavorful. The waiters were attentive and friendly, and brought treats from the chef during our meal. They were helpful in recommending our entrees, and appeared to be quite familiar with the menu. We will definitely return.

The food is very tasty and the portions are quite fulfilling, although not huge. Very well prepared and presented. Staff was very helpful in explaining ingredients and how the name for each dish had derived. I enjoyed very much the process of washing hands with the gardenia scented water! Definitely complete the dinner with the deserts.The Osmanly deserts are from... More

A beautiful Turkish restaurant on mezzanine floor of the Kempinski Nile Hotel in Cairo. From the platter of cold mezze as starters to delectable grilled kababs and koftas as main course food was excellent,

This is not the problem with only Osmanly restaurant. All restaurants in Cairo have the open buffet syndrome during Ramadan month... Continuous heating of food and making huge quantities leave food less tasty and over cooked... Recommended, if you have a budget, in months other than Ramadan.

I have been to Osmanly before with a friend of mine. The service there was excellent, the waiters were helpful and efficient. The food itself was ordinary and there was nothing special about the taste. The portions were too small and the food was expensive for the porttons. The restaurant itself was nice, the atmosphere was good and I liked... More

Although the space here is a little awkward and cramped with pillars in odd places I enjoyed the food. It's nothing revelatory but food is generally good and interesting take on accessible Turkish fare. Worth a try if you are staying in the Kempinski (I would recommend it over Blue) but I don't recommend going out of your way for... More
