Description: Cairo Kitchen is a new restaurant concept in Egypt that serves up traditional home-cooking in a fresh, contemporary setting. We offer a menu that combines some of the classics of Egyptian home-cooking and the country’s ubiquitous street cuisine, with an original salad bar that takes a fresh approach to local produce, serving it in new and creative ways. We’re paying homage to Egypt’s rich culinary traditions by proposing a new way of presenting and serving these “golden oldies” while staying true to the traditional recipes and ingredients. With bold interiors created by Egyptian architect and designer, Hassan Abouseda, the restaurant is a modern twist on Egypt’s traditional culture.

“Lots to chose from”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Cairo Kitchen has a variety of food to chose from. I like that you can craft your koshari with different ingredients like brown rice. The salad bar has lots of side items. The date cake was tasty as well; it looked a bit dry, but was just right.

One note: I don't speak/understand a lot of Arabic and the guy taking the orders was speaking really fast in Arabic ... I ordered the rotisserie chicken and got a side of green beans. The chicken was 28 LE which is expensive for just chicken. I asked about it, but there was a language barrier. Seems the chicken comes with two sides, but no one told me that. They gave me a partial refund; meaning I only paid for the chicken. However, had I known, I would have preferred to have the two sides.

“Tasty Egyptian food with fun, modern style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Cairo Kitchen offers traditional Egyptian food with quality ingredients in a bright, cheery atmosphere. Prices are much higher than the street food version but still in a reasonable range for the middle class and expat crowd. The selection of bottomless traditional cold drinks is a very nice touch. They don't have every traditional meal; for example, fuul and tameyya are not on the menu. But every dish I've had there has been tasty and there are daily specials.
