It's a cozy place with great plates from Lebanon! Tasty food, quick service and friendly staff! Pittas with hummus, kebab with garlic and yogurt sauce, chicken with rice, halloumi pitta and fattoush salad all really well cooked. Great experience. Recommended, especially if you stay in the hotel!

Had a great dinner at Sabaya last night. The food was authentic Lebanese with a large selection of different options available on the menu. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. Many thanks to Ahmed and Hany for making us feel so welcome.

Bread with hummus. Excellent. Raw lamb - to die for. Veal, charcoal grilled - too tough. Cab Sauvignon - Egyptian - giving the Australian and Californian ones a run for their money. Great service from Hany, Walid and Mohsen

Sabaya may be rooted in Lebanese tradition, but Chef Nasser Makhoul is willing to branch out with contemporary flair. Mezzas are the magic of the menu, with hot and cold options including Kebbe Nayye, Stuffed Vine Leaves, Hommow Bil Awarma, Makanik and Cheese Manaqish. In accordance with Lebanese custom, you’ll be brought to the lounge for after-dinner tea, sweets and conversation.Location: In the Semiramis InterContinental Cairo Hotel - 2nd level Services: Lunch | Dinner
