Concierge.com's insider take:
With so many Cairene hotel restaurants cranking out workaday Italian, French, or international fare, the Grand Hyatt scores big by devoting one of its ten dining rooms to Egyptian cuisine with Lebanese and Moroccan influences. Dishes like moutabel (purée of grilled eggplant with sesame and lemon), mombar (homemade lamb sausage), and shish tawouk (grilled chicken marinated in yogurt, tomato, and garlic) are all top-notch. The restaurant offers one of the most atmospheric dining experiences in town; as well as an indoor dining room, there's a riverside terrace covered by a pavilion, which is lit by lanterns at night and enlivened by wandering minstrels playing traditional Takht music. The pavilion is also where the restaurant's traditional clay oven is located, so terrace diners are surrounded by the delicious aroma of fresh-baked bread.
