The setting is OK, service is attentive enough and trying hard to do it right. Prices are what you expect in a place like this. But, alas, the food isn't all that special. The mixed grill was poor, mostly overcooked and badly presented. The appetisers were sightly better but very middle of the road.

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
