The food is very tasty and the portions are quite fulfilling, although not huge. Very well prepared and presented. Staff was very helpful in explaining ingredients and how the name for each dish had derived. I enjoyed very much the process of washing hands with the gardenia scented water! Definitely complete the dinner with the deserts.The Osmanly deserts are from... More

A beautiful Turkish restaurant on mezzanine floor of the Kempinski Nile Hotel in Cairo. From the platter of cold mezze as starters to delectable grilled kababs and koftas as main course food was excellent,

This is not the problem with only Osmanly restaurant. All restaurants in Cairo have the open buffet syndrome during Ramadan month... Continuous heating of food and making huge quantities leave food less tasty and over cooked... Recommended, if you have a budget, in months other than Ramadan.

I have been to Osmanly before with a friend of mine. The service there was excellent, the waiters were helpful and efficient. The food itself was ordinary and there was nothing special about the taste. The portions were too small and the food was expensive for the porttons. The restaurant itself was nice, the atmosphere was good and I liked... More

Although the space here is a little awkward and cramped with pillars in odd places I enjoyed the food. It's nothing revelatory but food is generally good and interesting take on accessible Turkish fare. Worth a try if you are staying in the Kempinski (I would recommend it over Blue) but I don't recommend going out of your way for... More

I heard about this Resturant from tripadvisor and reading the reviews made me very curious to go. In brief what ever you read it will beat it. The food is deliciously balanced with a top notch quality of service. The total bill it a bit expensive, but you pay for what you get. it's a must try.

My wife and I ate here twice during our recent stay in Cairo. We were very impressed. The service was very good and the food delicious. The dishes were all very refined with good portion size and balance of flavour. On the second visit, the waiter spilled a small amount of a drink on me, but the spill was quickly... More

We stayed at the Kempinski and decided to eat in one night - what a great decision. The restaurant is top notch in service without feeling stuffy. We had a very relaxed dinner, beginning with champagne cocktails and a delicious appetizer of grilled seafood. For our entrees, my husband had an eggplant dish and I had grilled shrimp and scallops... More
