About
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 Thai specialities such as garlic pepper shrimp, cashew chicken and crispy rice with peanut sauce are created.

The food at Birdcage was great, fresh, good ingredients, great seasoning, and so was the service (appetizers are included, waiters are very welcoming and even ask you about your preferred spicyness). The restaurant is located in the intercontinental hotel, totally suited also for solo female...travelers.More

After a long day of sightseeing and lots of walking, we went to Birdcage for dinner which was only a short walk from our hotel and is located inside the Intercontinental hotel. We did not have a reservation but were seated promptly as the restaurant...was not very busy. The food was decent, a good change if you want a break from the local cuisine, we had the sweet and sour chicken, spring rolls, beef noodle soup and rice noodles. The service was below average. we had to send back the noodles because they got the order wrong and we had to keep summoning the staff to refill water, bring the missing food. Also my dish arrived 10 minutes later than everyone else's on the table. Also note that this restaurant like many in Cairo allows smoking. I may give it another chance.More

NIce environment, atmospheric, very polite staff. The service was quick. The plates were tasty. We didn't like the spring rolls but generally we were satisfied with the taste of the plates we ordered.

The best Thai food outside of Thailand. Amazing service, fresh ingredients and quite a reasonable cost for a five-star hotel experience.

I believe there are a couple of vegan meal options, yet I'm not quite sure if there are vegan desserts! I've tried their herb soup, it's purely vegan and it was amazing, highly recommended :)
