This restaurant has a beautiful view and great shisha and delicious dessert. Too bad it took the staff 45 minutes to even offer us menus. It seemed to be a common theme at the hotel during our stay - understaffed/or staff that were not interested in serving particular types of people.

Had lamb and chicken grilled which had a lovely presentation over fire and very tasty. Lovely views of the Nile from every table. Service was attentive.

This place has one of the best views of the Nile river in Cairo. Stick to the mixed grill and you should be fine. Service is ok but definitely could be better...

Beautiful location with tables right next to the river and the ladies making bread just inside the entrance was nice to watch. The service is not good. It took time to be greeted and offered a table. After about 10 minutes, one of us stood up to go find our own menus. And then it took another 15 - 20... More

Hi, I'm writing you here to complain about the horrible service my husband and I received at the kababgy restaurant today. If it wasn't that we just arrived from the airport and were truly starving, I wouldn't have thought twice before leaving. Due to the cairo traffic we arruved an hour later than our reservation time and were directed to... More

Their mixed grill is the best I've tried in Cairo. And fair priced. But the best thing is the place - take a seat in the evening and you will be blown away due to the location.

Good selection and good service. We had a reservation and were promptly shown to our table. The selection is good and if you like grilled meat this is the place. It is part of the Sofitel Gezirah complex and the view over the Nile is nice with a slight breeze which makes it even nicer when hot.
