Looks like this place is a bit overestimated in the reviews.Food we had was very normal,as it is in any lebanese restaurant around Cairo.Hot dish(grilled meat) was under any expectation.It tasted like was grilled a few days ago and heated in microwave for us.The desert we took wasn't fresh as well. The serving guys were kind having fixed idea to... More

If you are looking for tasty Lebanese cuisine, then Sabaya is your place. The chef delivers the Lebanese taste you''d expect from this cousin which when coupled with the ambiance of the place offers a relaxing atmosphere for you to indulge in great food and time with friends. Staff is very friendly and tentative.

After visiting trip advisor's restaurant list several times and reading reviews, we came looking for the best in Cairo! Don't get me wrong, it is nice and very good food, but certainly not the best. It doesn't even have a view on the Nile! The staff are the best thing I have to say. So, yes, if you like Lebanese... More

Sabaya may be rooted in Lebanese tradition, but Chef Nasser Makhoul is willing to branch out with contemporary flair. Mezzas are the magic of the menu, with hot and cold options including Kebbe Nayye, Stuffed Vine Leaves, Hommow Bil Awarma, Makanik and Cheese Manaqish. In accordance with Lebanese custom, you’ll be brought to the lounge for after-dinner tea, sweets and conversation.Location: In the Semiramis InterContinental Cairo Hotel - 2nd level Services: Lunch | Dinner
