and to top it all, a long list of exotic beers. On the day Tusker (Kenyan) was the happy hour one. We thoroughly enjoyed the 'popcorn' made from spicy shrimps as a nibble, as well as the lamb dishes: Moroccan barbecued and Tunisian lamb shanks that melted in the mouth, yum! Portuguese tart with an Abyssinian coffee was great too.... More

The food here is absolutely unreal! I used to come here many years ago and am glad to see nothing has changed with the quality, on a Friday night the place was packed and the food was as delicious as I remember. The only negative I have is that it all happened so fast! We ordered 8 dishes to share... More

We had an early dinner after a late afternoon movie. Love the menu and the food is so tasty. It's fun to go somewhere different to everywhere else. Definitely worth a visit.

Dinner Sunday 1 Jan - Wonderful and professional service, from the friendly booking and throughout the evening. Wait staff came exactly when appropriate with perfect timing. Food interesting, although entrees may be nicer than mains - spicy lamb, great dhal, excellent rotis, OK whitebait. Local beer delicious too.

Lovely food at Radio Cairo but the very best thing on the menu are the Lamb Shanks - delicious, tender and a decent portion. This dish never disappoints. A tad crowed but a great little restaurant for a quick meal.

I love this place where you can eat a great selection of African and Jamaican dishes, influenced by Eastern spices and ingredients. It is spicy, mostly meat but fish and shrimp as well, the pertions are perfect and there are some 40 varieties of beer to choose from.

The cuisine at Radio Cairo is sensational! I'm so sick of eating Italian, Thai etc in my local area and Radio Cairo offers a fusion of African, Moroccan and Egyptian flavours. So refreshing to go somewhere different. Food comes out quickly every time no matter how busy they are. The kitchen is exposed which I love because I can see... More

Friends took us here because it was one of their favourite restaurants, and I can see why. A blend of African, Cajun, Caribbean, Indian and East Asian cuisines, the owner clearly knows her food, and what works together. It's a popular venue, and it is best to book. The banquet is a fantastic deal (requires 4 people), and they don't... More

RADIO CAIRO is my expression of cultural diversity at it's most positive.
I'm of Sri Lankan (Wijeyekoon), Irish (Kennedy), German Jew (De Worms), Portuguese (Perera) and English (Martin) origin!
The "Spice and Human trade" organically created me and the cuisine at RADIO CAIRO
People and food from China to South Asia to India to Europe to Africa to Caribbean to Southern Americas centred in
Slave Island, Kandy and Jaffna Peninsula, Sri Lanka.
