Description: 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 Chef Narong creates Thai specialties such as Garlic Pepper Shrimp, Cashew Chicken and Crispy Rice with Peanut Sauce.Location: In the Semiramis InterContinental Hotel - 2nd level Services: Lunch | Dinner

“Excellent Thai food in a great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I had one of the best meals almost ever in this place. The service is very good polite fast with lots of grace the food taste was very rich right from starters, soup to the main dish. It is a little bet expensive but being part of Smeiramis Intercon. you can tolerate that. The atmosphere is very good also for a different dining experience in Cairo do try it.

“Okay”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

All basic menu items which you would expect for a Thai / Sushi restaurant. Service is adequate. Nothing special, but good for Cairo standards. Don't expect too much.

“Little dark, but nice ambience”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We had Sum Tam and Vegetarian Pad Thai, which was very nice and reasonably priced. The service could be slightly better.

“Great atmosphere, but very average food”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The atmosphere is above par, but the value of the food is not worth your money--its very expensive for very average thai food. the spring rolls aren't anything special but are very expensive--i've had better in other places.
We went for the afternoon--and there weren't any other customers--so we had great service.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

If you like the Thai cuisine, this is the place for you! I ESP loved the Pad Thai and green/red curry.. The beef/chicken satay is really good too!
It's a pricey, but by far the best authentic Thai in Cairo!

Warning: this place is just not for you if you don't like Thai, they won't have anything else on the menu that you will like.
