Two new Indian restaurants in Cairo

Ahram Online, Sunday 4 Dec 2011

To truly feel you are in a new and impressive ambiance and just to try something new, both recently opened restaurants will do the trick


Indian is the flavour of the day with two new restaurants opening last month in Cairo!


The Fairmont Heliopolis & Towers on the airport road, as usual, offers a classy experience. The décor in their newest addition, Raj, is rather imperceptible, since the Fairmont's impressive, large, sleek lobby steals all of the attention. This is precisely what makes a night out at any one of the restaurants in the Fairmont Heliopolis lobby a unique experience.

The chef, Arvinth Elangovan, and his team are viewable from your seat through a wall-to-wall glass window. Anything with a coconut sauce is good here!

Another new restaurant, Asha’s, is on the Corniche in Giza, on the other side and a bit past the TGI Friday's boat. Although tasty and they pay special attention to perfection - maintaining temperature, not overcooking, crispiness when fried, etc. - it is still outshone by its Asian-food neighbour, which is getting rave reviews.

For reservations: +2.022.3761.8808


Both restaurants are on the rather expensive side.

Ahram Online will offer a more in-depth review of Chop Chop, the new, mixed Asian restaurant next to Asha's - it is surely worth it!
