Description: Everything about the Birdcage is pure Thailand, from the exotic water feature at the door to the authentic etiquette displayed throughout your meal. What will really transport you across the continent; however, are the sizzling sounds and enticing aromas from the open kitchen, where Chef Narong creates Thai specialties such as Garlic Pepper Shrimp, Cashew Chicken and Crispy Rice with Peanut Sauce.Location: In the Semiramis InterContinental Hotel - 2nd level Services: Lunch | Dinner

“the best asian experience in middle east!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Birdcage was the most amazing food I've had in years. When I first saw it on tripadvisor, I didnt think much of it despite the amazing ratings but we were hooked. We went there a dozen times before we left Cairo. Its the best place at the Intercontinental hotel!

We visited The Birdcage on our second night in Cairo from our hotel out at Giza. We'd read good reviews and were not disappointed

“I look forward to returning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I visited a friend in Cairo, Egypt during September of 2012. While he introduced me to delicious Egyptian cuisine, I was able to introduce him to Thai cuisine while dining at the Birdcage during my stay at the Semiramis InterContinental Hotel. The food was superbly prepared, the atmosphere very pleasant and the service polite and efficient. My Egyptian friend was quite impressed and we returned to enjoy a second meal at the Birdcage during my trip.
