It would be 20 years since I last visited Radio Cairo and we were blown away once again with the service, the food and the ambience of this restaurant - what a pleasant surprise to find that it's still in the same place and that the standard is exactly as I remember it. The food is amazing, the flavours coming... More

My friends & I have been to Radio Cairo many times. The food & the atmosphere are fabulous & the service wonderful! I love the international menu with Cajun Shrimp a must & South African Lamb dish a favourite. This is a must restaurant if you are on the North side of the Harbour.

10/10 - food, wine, service, atmosphere. Cannot wait to go back. It's been a long time since I ate 'Shake your head in disbelief with your eyes closed' good food. Not mega cheap but then we did have cocktails so fair enough. Waiter suggested beer and wine which were both exactly what we were looking for and went really well... More

Wow, we have been here before but tonight was the best. The waiters were funny, cheeky and quick, the food was unbelievable, ribs, chicken wings, vegetarian pastry and prawns all amazing and, the general atmosphere was just too good! We had the best dinner experience for a long time!

We had this restaurant on our bucket list and we were not disappointed. We just wanted a nosh and had the crab appetisers and really enjoyed it. We want to go back and try their lamb dishes. Comfortable and very good service

Doesn't look like much outside and the inside has a strange layout, it all contributes to a fun experience. This place has a great energy and delicious food with African flavours. Benn here many times for a bite before a show to just because we can't get anything else like it locally. Definitely give it a try!

Had fun here recently with the better half. Service was friendly and informal - they had some great suggestions for those unfamiliar with the menu and put some thought into a matching wine. The ribs are great - even if eating them on a reasonably small table proved a bit of a challenge. Pleased to report though that dignity was... More

Great food, great atmosphere, super friendly staff. What more could you ask for? I have to make one recommendation and that is the African Mint Tea Ice Cream.
