Tried Nile Cafe after reading reviews. All had lunch gyro special, two with lamb, two with chicken. Not disappointed. Best lamb gyro I've had in years. All ingredients fresh, tasteful, and tatziki sauce was best I've ever had (and I don't like cucumbers). Even the...More

We have been looking for a good Mediterranean restaurant with a great health rating and were lucky and very pleased to find Nile Cafe. Their current health rating is 99, which is outstanding. We both had the lamb gyro and it was fantastic with just...More

Nile Cafe is clean and tidy, sanitation rating 96.5 at my second visit, but it's not inviting. Their menu is what one would expect, but somehow just seems flat in comparison to other middle Eastern places along the same route. Chicken Shwarma is OK and...More

The pita bread was served warm & thin the way pita should be. The cucumber salad is excellent. Loved the fried kibbeh and gyro meat. I believe the rice is saffron rice. The prices are fair when you consider the portions. Can't wait to go...More

I went during Ramadan when their head chef was fasting and so the meal was not quite perfect. But they made up in their willingness to please. Their feta and jalapenos appetizer with pita bread is amazing. I also had the Tabouleh salad with beef...More

It's not bad but I expected a lot more of this Mediterranean restaurant. The Falavel lacked flavor and even though I took the Nile special menu the food was merely enough to fill me up.

The food was fresh and tasty, seasoned well. Greek salad was rather sparse for the additional cost. Gyro was good, not great. Queen of the Nile platter was good, 3 meats, vegetables and rice. Pita bread was soft. Price was a bit high for a...More

If you're driving down Walnut street from downtown Cary through CrossRoads, there are going to be plenty of options for Mediterranean food, all of which are very good. However, if you keep driving down to Tryon St., you'll reach the best: the new Nile Café....More

When Egyptian natives, Ehab and Sahar Hassan, started catering for friends and family over thirty years ago, they never realized they would open a restaurant of their own one day. Nile Cafe Mediterranean Restaurant & Bakery features well-known Egyptian specialties like Koshary, famous Mediterranean dishes, as well as specialty cakes and Mediterranean desserts handmade by Sahar. The Hassans are hugely popular in the Egyptian and Middle Eastern community for their food, especially for weddings, parties, and celebrations. The Hassans bring over thirty years of pastry and catering experience to Nile Cafe.
