Sachi, found in the centre of Cairo, always impresses with its winning combination of assured sushi, serene décor and glamorous atmosphere. Chef Ashour Desouki is at the helm in the kitchen. The chateaubriand for two, a premium cut of South Africa beef tenderloin, is a showstopper. Served with a side of roasted vegetables and a choice between peppercorn sauce or shallot vinaigrette, this sharing plate sees diners flock from across the city and internationally. Flavours from the Mediterranean also feature here: there are small bites and appetisers aplenty, including a Stracciatella salad with burrata cream, and excellent shrimp cooked table-side for added theatre. The cocktail options are designed to go hand in hand with the mains. For a burst of fresh flavour, opt for the Apple Martini or Thyme Gimlet.
