Top Go to Chinese restaurants in Cairo

Chinese is one of the most popular cuisines in the world; it’s definitely super popular here in the Arab World, in general, and in Egypt specifically. It’s easy to guess why; it’s usually not very expensive, it’s steamed or stir-fried, so healthy and non-greasy, and for most people, it tastes amazing. The mouthwatering sauces drenched over some steamed rice with your choice of protein will definitely make your taste buds dance out of happiness.

There are endless choices when it comes to Chinese restaurants in Cairo, from food carts, fast-food franchises that make Chinese food, to proper fine-dining places that are specialized in the delicious cuisine. Since tomorrow marks the Chinese new year, here’s a list of Chinese restaurants that are on top of their game in the city of Cairo!

Chill Dine-ins


Via Peking

Let’s start with one of the best Chinese food restaurant chains in Egypt. Peking was established back in 1962, and it has maintained high standards of quality and taste ever since. I usually dine-in there rather than order the food online, but I have recently tried their delivery service and it was amazing as well. The food was hot, the packaging was neat, and the portions were more than enough.

Joy Luck

Joy Luck is one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants I’ve ever tried. The food is super cheap, freshly made, and very yummy. Moreover, the place is very humble and cozy, making the experience unique and memorable. Their noodles with beef and chili is a must try by all means.

Lan Yuan

Lan Yuan is located in the heart of Maadi on Road 9. It is a very chill place to head to and crack open a cold one with the boys, but apparently, their food is even a better reason to go! I’ve never tried their food until recently, and I instantly fell in love. I tried the noodles soup with seafood and it was out of this world, and the lemon sauce chicken is also amazing.

Genghis Khan

Genghis Khan is definitely on top of its game when it comes to scrumptious Chinese food. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is also chill. If you head there, you should definitely try the sweet and sour chicken and the yummy vegetable spring rolls.

Premium Fine-dining

8 Restaurant

Via Four Seasons

8 Restaurant is hands down one of the most luxurious destinations for Chinese fine-dining in Cairo. Located at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza, probably the most expensive and classiest place in Egypt. If your partner is into Chinese food, I can’t think of a better place to have an unforgettable date-experience.

Asia Bar

Asia Bar has been blessing diners in Cairo since 2005 with the most premium service you can find in the capital. It has an awesome central location with a magical view by the Nile. In addition to their unmatched Chinese food, Asia Bar’s sushi is on a whole different level!


Via Trip Advisor

L’Asiatique is located in Le Pacha 1901, and it’s one of the best and oldest Asian restaurants in Cairo. They have different Asian cuisines, but their Chinese is a must try! It’s a bit pricy, but with every bite, you’ll know why it’s totally worth it.


Wok and Walk

Wok and Walk is the ultimate Chinese food experience in a box! They have branches in different parts of Cairo and it’s a quick and delish choice if you want to have Chinese food on the go.

Maharaja & Zenzen

Via Mahraja & Zenzen

Maharaja & Zenzen offers a wide range of Asian cuisines such as Thai and Korean food, but their Chinese food definitely stands out the most. I’m in love with their sweet and sour shrimps and their dumplings.
