The staff here are extremely friendly and accommodating. I asked to dine away from other diners due to work calls and Covid and they very kindly set up a table in a quiet spot. The food was fresh and served promptly. Special thanks to Hossam...who was most helpful with menu recommendations.More

We had the Beef Bao buns and Mangolian Beef and Sweet&Sour Shrimp. Never better! Highly recommendable. Also the waiters (e.g. Hosam) are excellent informed and able to explain the ingredients of the dishes.

I went to Nairu and had Hosam as our waiter. He was incredibly nice and helpful, and I am personally gluten free and he was so so helpful for me choosing a meal. They label everything on their menu in regards to allergies which is...really appreciated because it’s hard to find asian food that is gluten free. The food was AMAZING. Sushi melts in your mouth. The fish is so fresh. Apparently the Mongolian Beef is the best thing here, my mom recommends it. Definitely give this place a visit, best food I have had in Egypt while I’ve been here. We got a reservation at 8:30, the place is super clean, and we ended up leaving at 10:20, so not bad considering we had drinks, appetizers and then our main course. Staff is so nice, speaks English very well.More

Excellent service. The waiters were very helpful and professional. They provided detailed explanations for every item on the item. Sushi was perfect, except the fish amount in the rolls could’ve been more relative to the rice. Dessert was amazing, especially the chocolate cake.

Real authentic asian food! They have japanese, indian & chinese! We will surely come...back! I highly recommend this restaurant! Try to go also in the morning or when the sun's still up to enjoy the view of the Nile River 💛More
