The Cairo restaurant scene is well known for its abundance and variety of dining opportunities and an impressive selection of gourmet offerings. Yet even with this supreme selection on tap, Japanese restaurant Kazoku stands out as an exceptional gourmet destination with its exquisite, original menu and fabulous design all in the most elegant of settings.
Kazoku opened in Cairo in 2015 and very quickly became a highly successful and much-vaunted dining destination in the city. The Japanese restaurant is the brainchild of Baku Hospitality, one of the leading providers of hospitality services in Egypt. Its founder Ayman Baky’s philosophy is to work only with the very best creative and innovative professionals in the catering industry. He handpicked the talented team which means the restaurant has reached the heights of gourmet excellence and has become one of the trendsetters in Cairo’s culinary scene.
The restaurant is situated in the heart of New Cairo in the First Settlement of the Swan Lake Compound. It’s the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, set in secluded, palm tree-lined surroundings with an outdoor pool. Its sleek minimalist design offers a range of seating options to choose from, including the bar area, dining salon, lounge, sushi counter, and outdoor seating for relaxed al fresco dining. The chic interior is atmospherically lit and the fine, carefully chosen decor and ceramics reinforce the Japanese theme throughout.
The authentic, contemporary Japanese menu offers the most delightful of innovative dishes. Celebrity Chef Reif Othman is the mastermind behind the restaurant’s culinary excellence, providing a wide variety of dishes and a fabulous sushi selection for a complete sensory experience. Highly recommended dishes include the Miso Glazed Black Cod with Honey Miso Sauce; Chilean Sea Bass, Oven Roasted with Jalapeño and Ginger Sauce; Roasted Lobster with Chili Ponzu Butter; Grilled Wagyu Beef with Seaweed Butter, Smashed Potatoes and Lemon Ponzu Mayonnaise.
No visit to Kazoku would be complete without sampling some of the superb drinks and cocktails that have been specially compiled by renowned Beirut-based mixologist, Walid Merhi. And the relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere is completed by the exclusive playlists which have been composed by the maestro from Spain, Jordi Carreras. All creating the perfect mood in which to enjoy a chilled evening out and some truly special food with family and friends.
This is why Kazoku has been chosen by the experts at Luxury Lifestyle Awards as one of the winners in the category of Best Luxury Restaurants in Egypt. It is the second time the restaurant has received this accolade.
