What can I expect? Sachi offers an escape from the noise of the city with its serene decor and elegant dining room. The room is replete with comfy chairs, while the low-hanging bulbs and sleek black tables add to the intimate and glamorous atmosphere.
On the menu: Small bites and appetisers such as beef tataki with sweet soy and mushroom, and octopus carpaccio served with a ginger infusion and lemongrass head up the menu, sampling flavours from the Mediterranean coast. Guests travel from afar to try the Chateaubriand steak for two: a South African beef tenderloin served with roasted vegetables and your choice of three sauces.
And to drink? A towering wine rack in the restaurant’s dining room showcases Sachi’s impressive selection of drinks, while the bar can whip up a refreshing cocktail. Opt for the apple martini or thyme gimlet as the perfect accompaniment to an evening meal.
Who’s behind it? A pioneer in the industry, restaurateur Ayman Baky has over twenty years’ experience in hospitality. His own brand, Baky Hospitality Group, was launched in 2013 and operates venues across Egypt.
Other ventures: Founded in 2014 in Cairo’s Heliopolis, Sachi represented the beginning of Baky’s gastronomic empire. The restaurant has since been joined by two sister branches: Sachi by the Sea on Egypt’s northern coast and Sachi Park Street in the Giza governorate. The latter makes its debut on the MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 list.
