Wanted to try something new so we settled on an Egyptian meal for Easter Sunday night - we were not disappointed! The restaurant was pretty quiet when we first arrived, but soon filled up with lots of customers. It was obvious that the restaurant is understaffed - so please be patient with the wait staff! It is a big restaurant. The portion sizes are massive, we ended up ordering 4 mains to share amongst 5 and even that we were struggling to finish. Each dish was cooked in individual clay pots and we were given sharing plates. The Sayadia was the best! The fish fillet pieces, calamari and prawn were fried in a batter that was so crispy and tasty even after it was baked on top of the bed of rice. This dish was so tasty and seasoned to perfection. It is a baked dish so the top is dry and crispy almost while the bottom is still moist. Another top dish was the Lamb Shank Fattah! So worth it because it comes with a massive piece of lamb shank that has so much meat that fell right off the bone. The rice was cooked with pieces of angel hair and was so tasty and oily from all the lamb bone broth. I love the pieces of fried bread they added on top, the crispiness gave the dish a great contrast in texture and really enhanced the flavour overall. The Kawarah dish came with a seperate bowl of what i believe is bone broth, super starchy, sticky and tasty. The rice dish was already pretty soupy and wet, the slow cooked Buffalo trotters were so gooey and soft. It is very similar to beef tendons but way softer! Came with bones from the trotted that was super flavourful and sweet. Rice was also super yummy and paired beautifully with the fried bread! The Moussaka tasted very similar to an eggplant + beef mince lasagna - without the lasagna sheets. It was baked with tomato purée and topped with béchamel sauce, so it makes sense why it tasted very much like a lasagna. Not bad, it was tasty but not my favourite. Overall experience was great, new and interesting new flavours! 📸 Kawarah, Tagen Super Sayadia, Tagen Moussaka, Lamb Shank Fattah See less

Terrific service, fantastic food, fun atmosphere, and great value for money put this as one of my best rated overall restaurants. We had an early family dinner on a Satruday night in Ramadan. When we arrived the staff helped us with our pram and we had a nice table in the corner We choose the banquet and added in pasta for the kids and Ee ordered barramundi as an extra dish - and there was no doubt it was worth it - so good! The wraiting staff had just the right balance of attentiveness and good humour. We felt very spoiled. See less

Pros Good smiley service. Cons Super Expensive with small portions. Ordered *mumber (18A$ for 3 pieces!!!) *Molokheya JUST the soup (14A$ even though i was quoted 10A$) *Tageb lamb roz (28 A$???!!) Wasnt properly cooked. Found out that the rice turned out to be risotto which is the righ cooking for it. Fair enough. But, can you mention its risotto rice in the menu !!!! Wouldn't have Ordered it. Also an extremely disadvantage thing is that half way through my food some new table decided to order shisha (hookah) and i had to tolerate this while eating. This was in the outside area. Like... i dont smoke why did i have to go through this!!! As for the sahlab drink, well, just hot milk... See less

Not my first time to dine here and certainly not my last! The food is so delicious and flavors are authentically spot on. Making my own Turkish coffee was a first and a lovely experience. Thank you once again x See less

This is by far my favourite restaurant on Lygon St. The quality of both the food and the shisha is 5 star, the building has been renovated beautifully and both the indoor and outdoor seating spaces are gorgeous, adding to that, the service is incredible. I have been back 7 or 8 times in the few months that it has been open and every staff member on every occasion has been friendly, attentive and kind. This is a winner if you're looking for somewhere impressive to take people, I could not recommend this restaurant more. See less

My ten year old twins and I had a delicious meal at Cairo Nights while we were visiting Melbourne in December 2021. We had never had Egyptian food before and our waitress Mia made everything so simple and easy for us to choose, especially for one of my boys who is very fussy. I loved the calamari and my boys went nuts for the chicken wings. Great service and atmosphere. I highly reccommend for a casual meal or a romantic date. See less

The order comes in around one hour. The price is so high. We order Kabba exander, it is full oil, and green salad has chilli 🌶. Malkoia is the best . I never 👎 think to back for them. See less

Looking for good Egyptian food and halal food on lygon street, then this is the place. We ordered entree, main and some drinks. The food you see on the table was good for 3 of us. We’d to do a takeaway from this as well, so you can imagine the quantity. >Best of all the food was lamb fattah. >Chicken wings were amazing too. >Tagen prawn is more like risotto. >Hawashi was okayish.
