Great food and service. Recommend try something out of the box when it comes to Lebanese cuisine such as the grilled sea food, stuffed pigeons or our favorite sea bass fish kosbareya. The flavors are amazing, you will sweep everything off the plate.

The restaurant is on the 2nd floor inside the hotel; nice, clean and quiet. I had a grill fish and it’s probably the best grill fish I have ever had. Highly recommend!

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
