“Impressive menu”
Reviewed May 17, 2011

The snow crab ceviche could be the best thing I ever ate. Some tables have a nice view overlooking the nile. Good place to withdraw from the city.

“Delicious and memorable meal”
Reviewed January 25, 2011

A group of 6 of us stayed at the Fairmont Nile City for a total of 5 nights. Due to long, busy days, we often returned to the hotel exhausted. One evening we opted to eat in Saigon Bleu rather than go out again.

We could not have been happier with our meal. The service was perfect and attentive without being fussy. The food was outstanding. The duck with foie gras was so good that we were sorry we didn't have time to eat here a second evening. We are still talking about how delicious it was. That evening we sampled several dishes, including the duck, rack of lamb, pho and an assortment of other Vietnamese inspired dishes. All were delicious.

This is not an inexpensive dining venue, but on a par with Fairmont restaurants in the US. Perhaps a bit pricey for Egypt, but certainly the quality of food and service are justified. It was the perfect touch after a long tiring day in Cairo.
