These Egyptian Restaurants Made It to MENA's Top 50 List for 2024

Zooba, Sachi (both Cairo and Giza branches) and Kazoku are amongst the best restaurants in Egypt according to the MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants List for the third consecutive year...with new additions. The restaurants were meticulously selected by a highly influential group of over 250 jury members based on a plethora of criteria, including the culinary finesse demonstrated in their cuisine, the degree of originality, and the overall dining experience.

These Egyptian restaurants have managed to leave their mark amidst the MENA region’s saturated F&B industry, cementing themselves as beacons of culinary excellence. Being accorded the distinction of being one of the top 50 restaurants in the region is a remarkable accomplishment, given the formidable competition and stringent standards for inclusion.

Khufu's 

Giza Pyramids, Cairo

#5 BEST RESTAURANT MENA

A new contender, ladies and gentlemen! Khufu’s is notorious for showcasing Egyptian cuisine at its absolute finest, in the most conventionally Egyptian environment possible. It is, to many, a pride and joy.

Kazoku

Swan Lake, New Cairo

#12 BEST RESTAURANT MENA

The star of a certain video that signifies a turning point in Egyptian pop culture, Kazoku has cemented itself as a date spot for years to come. Its contemporary Japanese dishes are, of course, a delight.

Sachi

Park St. Sheikh Zayed, Giza

#15 BEST RESTAURANT MENA

When that one girl on TikTok said she wasn’t for the ‘Sachi & the Machi,’ and half the Egyptian TikTok population agreed with her, The List most certainly did not take note. The spot’s dependably delicious Asian cuisine and spritzy cocktails have wowed the committee once again.

Zooba 

26 July St., Zamalek

#24 BEST RESTAURANT MENA

Once again, Zooba proves its excellence on a regional, if not international, level. With its quirky twists on traditional dishes, the spot is constantly surprising us with out-of-the-box creations. It’s a high risk, high reward game and we love the thrill.

Sachi

Cairo Cleopatra St., Heliopolis

#33 BEST RESTAURANT MENA

A little further east, another Sachi is making splashes in the regional world of food. Offering the same Asian delicacies cooked to perfection, paired with the same electrifying cocktail selection, this Sachi in a sultry, dimly lit environment the TikTok kids would describe as being “mob wife core”.

Izakaya

Palm Hills, Sheikh Zayed

#38 BEST RESTAURANT MENA

When looking for fusion, go no further than Izakaya. The restaurant specialises exclusively in Nikkei cuisine, which is a crossing point between the Japanese and South American cuisines. Think sushi, but a little bit more intense.
