“Really tasty and a very nice service”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

In a quite cozy place with a very friendly and helpful service Sabaya serves very tasty and delicious Lebanese food. The best Middle Eastern food I have ever had. First of they treated me with a fresh and nicelooking salad, then the appetizers (Tabouleh, Fallafel and grilled haloumi) was supertasty. I then had two mains, both very good.
In all it was clean, very tasty and good food. I am very glad I went here and defiantly recommend it.

“Great food and service.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We ate at the Sabaya restaurant during our stay and enjoyed every single morsel of our set menu meal. We tried Egyptian wine with our dinner and were very pleasantly surprised at how good it was never having tasted it before. The meal represented good value for money and the service was great.

“Lebanese Cuisine In Cairo”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Had a great afternoon meal at Sabaya. The service was exceptional and the prices were very good. My meal consisted of an appetizer of spinach wrapped stars with a middle eastern spice and minced meat kaftas in a tomato basil sauce. Both were really good. The restaurant has an authentic feel to it. Seating is on chairs and couches in the Lebanese style and the restaurant is airy and light. Would definitely eat here again.
