Connoisseurs of haute cuisine in Egypt had the fortunate opportunity to appreciate the elegance of Japanese culinary much earlier than the European gourmets. The abundance and variety of restaurants representing the traditions of Japanese cuisine can surprise even the most sophisticated connoisseurs of the gourmet scene. But even with such a wealth of choices, Kazoku stands out and finds ways to pleasantly amaze and offer something new. Going beyond the traditional cuisine of the Land of the Rising Sun, this high-end restaurant offers a sophisticated atmosphere and an exquisite menu that has received acclaim from sophisticated diners and industry experts alike. Thus, Kazoku was named one of the Luxury Lifestyle Awards winners for the second time in the category of The Best Luxury Restaurants in Egypt.
Kazoku appeared on Cairo’s culinary map in 2015 and has become one of the most successful outlets of Baku Hospitality, one of the leading providers of hospitality services in Egypt. The founder of the company, Ayman Baky, is determined to work only with the most creative, talented, and innovative professionals in the industry. Following this principle, he gathered the Kazoku team, which allowed the restaurant to offer services of the highest quality and become one of the trendsetters on the national culinary scene.
The restaurant is located in the heart of New Cairo, in the First Settlement of the Swan Lake Compound. The secluded location, palm-lined surroundings, outdoor pool – the whole area around the venue disposes to a pleasant, relaxing time and a break from the bustle of the city. From the first seconds in Kazoku it is impossible not to notice its sleek minimalistic design and variety of seating options in different sections. You can choose from the bar, the dining salon, the lounge area, the sushi counter, and outdoor seating. The chic interior of the restaurant is highlighted by the competent use of dark light and perfectly chosen fine pottery, which emphasizes Japanese motifs.
Kazoku’s vibrant environment and the menu of authentic contemporary Japanese cuisine are setting new standards for the art of dining. Celebrity chef Reif Othman is responsible for authentic Japanese flavors. He is the mastermind behind the innovative menu with a wide variety of dishes and contemporary sushi options for your full sensory experience. It’s impossible to taste all the gustatory gifts that the restaurant’s team has prepared in one go. However, if you are lucky enough to visit Kazoku more than once, the Luxury Lifestyle Awards experts recommend not missing the opportunity to enjoy such culinary masterpieces as 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.
The tranquil atmosphere of Kazoku would not be complete without the excellent menu of drinks and cocktails, carefully compiled by Walid Merhi, the famous Beirut-based mixologist. And exclusive harmonious music playlists composed by the maestro from Spain Jordi Carreras create the perfect sound background and provide the perfect mood for a cozy chilled out evening with your loved ones.
