Cairo Kitchen is a new restaurant concept in Egypt that serves up traditional home-cooking in a fresh, contemporary setting. We offer a menu that combines some of the classics of Egyptian home-cooking and the country’s ubiquitous street cuisine, with an original salad bar that takes a fresh approach to local produce, serving it in new and creative ways. We’re paying homage to Egypt’s rich culinary traditions by proposing a new way of presenting and serving these “golden oldies” while staying true to the traditional recipes and ingredients. With bold interiors created by Egyptian architect and designer, Hassan Abouseda, the restaurant is a modern twist on Egypt’s traditional culture.

It is a small local restaurant featuring Egyptian dishes. I had Koshary- it was good, but not the best I've had. My husband had the shish kabab. The meat was thinly cut and dry. It was inexpensive.

We needed good food quickly and that’s what we found here. We had a selection of salads and they were all really tasty. Service was good, prices were good. I’d recommend it.

We had a quick meal here one weekday evening. There was one other couple in there so not cramped as others have experienced. We had straightforward veggie Koshary and drinks which was good with nice crispy onions. Service charge and taxes were combined and came...More

I am a great fan of Cairo Kitchen since its establishment. Fast forward a few years. On a week day decided to walk in to figure out if they still operational? It does not even look like it’s open for business. Sadly, the salads are...More
