Situated on the ground floor, Xodó offers the best Brazilian ambience and carnivore-based menu in Cairo, while Nairu will serve some of the most exotic cuisines of Asia.

"Xodó" is the Portuguese word for an expression of a feeling of love, and that’s what will happen when guests try Chef Guilherme Reis’s menu, with its promise to deliver authentic Brazilian cuisine including the best bespoke grilled meat in a churrascaria concept. Master of craft Chef Reis has beautifully curated Xodó’s carnivore-based menu in which he has incorporated traditional Brazilian flavours.

Although Xodó menu is ideal for meat lovers, it’s diverse, vibrant and will suit the all palates,” says Chef Reis.

Popular appetisers and salads include the bolinha de quejo, a deep fried pastry filled with a blend of mozzarella, blue cheese and chili; paõ de alho grelhado, grilled garlic bread with chicken liver pate; and salata de horta com camaraõ, fajita-marinated prawns, greens, goat cheese crumbles, red onions and caramelised walnuts with raspberry vinaigrette. From the grill, Chef Reis recommends the linguiça de carne com queijo, Australian veal sausage with cuiabana cheese (for two). Desserts include the South American pudim de leite condensato, the Brazilian home-made condensed milk flan; and the sorvete de frutas tropicais, the home-made tropical passion fruit, guava or sweet corn ice cream.

Xodó’s interiors feature teak wood adorning the floors and walls, giving the restaurant a rich and warm ambience. An open mise-en-place will greet guests as they enter the bar area where guests can sip on the best signature Brazilian cocktails while enjoying the panoramic view of the Nile.


Walk into Nairu, which translates from Nile in Japanese, and guests are greeted by a richly-coloured, teak-wood doorway and patterned floor that, during the day, perfectly complements the light and airy atmosphere from the guests' panoramic Nile view. Further immersing into this fascinating region is the colourful street-art hand-painted mural showcasing colourful, rich and storied Asian history and culture.
