Hands down, without a doubt, the best Thai sanctuary in Egypt, and I lived in Thailand, so I know what I'm talking about. Must experience. Wether you're celebrating, or just catching up with friends, do it over impeccable Thai food! Birdcage is certainly the most authentic Thai experience in this part of the world. The Chef is a genius. He... More

I stayed at the SemiRamis Intercontinental in Cairo with my family and decided to try the Bird Cage as we do like Thai and it was right inside the hotel. Having being spoiled by the many fine options in NYC, we didn't know what to expect in Cairo. Very happy to report that the Bird Cage was every bit as... More

Don't miss out on the papaya salad and the shrimp konafa, A MUST. The only downside to my overall experience is that the lobby's music is a bit distracting and irrelevant to the restaurant's atmosphere.

We had dinner here on our last night in Cairo. We walked right in at around 8:30pm on a Friday night. The restaurant was moderately busy but still had plenty of open tables so we were seated right away. The restaurant is relatively small and the decor is elegant, matching the style of the hotel lobby as a whole. Service... More

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
