Ayadina Lebanese Restaurant’s Ramadan Buffet: Peak Lebanese Hospitality

Within a long list of Lebanese restaurants in Cairo, Ayadina Lebanese Restaurant has consistently graced the top spot for years. At Ayadina, prepare yourself for the Lebanese experience of a lifetime, where the essence of Lebanese hospitality and culture unfolds on every single plate.

There are various branches throughout the city, in Madinaty, Korba, Nasr City, and 6th of October City. We tried their Madinaty branch, located in Open Air Mall—which has several parking lots! Obviously, this branch’s prime location means plenty of perfect parking spaces await you.

Embracing a tranquil ambience, Ayadina pairs light and dark colour schemes to exude an intimate, homely atmosphere. Indoors, your eyes will immediately notice, not to mention admire, the tree standing tall and flourishing its yellow, green, and white foliage. If you want to enjoy the cool breeze and spend your evening outdoors, you will enjoy the serene greenery overlooking the restaurant.

Adding to this homely ambience, the servers will greet you with classic Lebanese hospitality, welcoming you with a warm smile and prompt, attentive help when needed.

During Ramadan, their iftar buffets boast a wide array of Lebanese goods. They switch between three different buffet menus every day, but all their menus are equally extensive, with several options for everything from the soups and salads to the main courses and desserts.

Their shrimp fatteh is a must-try this Ramadan—with its layers of crispy, golden-brown pita bread, its foundation of delicately seasoned and perfectly cooked shrimp, and its tangy garlic yoghurt all add a refreshing contrast. As a side dish, you can’t miss out on their tabbouleh, which includes fresh veggies and a symphony of flavours that makes for a fragrant and refreshing salad. To end your authentic Lebanese experience at Ayadina Lebanese Restaurant, tantalise your senses with their sweet, creamy mafroukeh – it’s to die for!

There’s obviously so much more to feast on at Ayadina, and all of that would cost EGP 850 per person—including the services and taxes—which is a relatively moderate price for such an extensive buffet that you can indulge in for hours on end.

With all this in mind, Ayadina Lebanese Restaurant is nothing short of memorable, inviting, and charming. Do not let Ramadan pass this year without trying their iftar buffet at least once!

Their shrimp fatteh!
