You come here for the grilled meats and the location! It's located right on the Nile, with beautiful views of the city. The food is excellent Egyptian fare of koftas, kebabs, and salads. The bread is made fresh, on site.

Kebabgy is a must visit! Located at the Sofitel El Gezirah hotel on the south end of Gezira (Zamalek) island, you must sit outside at Kebabgy and enjoy the panoramic Nile views. Don't bother with the entrees, focus on ordering lots of hot and cold...More

We were disappointed with this restaurant. Lovely setting with gorgeous views of Nile. Food was poor and nothing special. Customer service was frustrating. We felt meal was overpriced and did it reflect the positive reviews we had read. “I don't like” I don't like either...More
