“Average experience - Ramadan open buffet”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is not the problem with only Osmanly restaurant. All restaurants in Cairo have the open buffet syndrome during Ramadan month...
Continuous heating of food and making huge quantities leave food less tasty and over cooked...
Recommended, if you have a budget, in months other than Ramadan.

“An average experience.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

I have been to Osmanly before with a friend of mine. The service there was excellent, the waiters were helpful and efficient. The food itself was ordinary and there was nothing special about the taste. The portions were too small and the food was expensive for the porttons. The restaurant itself was nice, the atmosphere was good and I liked the decor

“Good food, nice ambience, strange space”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Although the space here is a little awkward and cramped with pillars in odd places I enjoyed the food. It's nothing revelatory but food is generally good and interesting take on accessible Turkish fare. Worth a try if you are staying in the Kempinski (I would recommend it over Blue) but I don't recommend going out of your way for it.

“Service is very good and the ambiance is nice”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

the restaurant offers Turkish cuisine, I went there with my wife and we had 2 appetizers and 2 main dishes and one dessert, the food was good, but nothing special. the service is very good and the ambiance is nice, but the prices were very high ( around U.S.$100 for 2 persons with no alcoholic beverage). the restaurant is in the first floor but with no Nile view, but the decoration is nice.
