Sachi: Making Fine Dining Experience a New Attraction of Egypt
Egypt has been attracting tourists from all over the world for many years. Ancient pyramids, river walks along the Nile, dream holidays on the seashore all year round have long been the main visiting cards of this amazing country. But lately, the capital of Egypt, Cairo, has been gaining the status of a new star for connoisseurs of fine cuisine and gourmet experiences. The restaurant and bar scene has been seeing new names, among which one of the brightest is Sachi, this year’s winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of The Best Luxury Restaurants in Egypt.
The charming backstory behind the creation of Sachi is closely tied to the family values that are important to all the projects of Ayman Baky, the restaurant’s co-founder. He and his wife, Tina Antaki, founded the first Sachi venue in 2014 in Cairo, and it was a kind of dedication to their beloved children, whose names make up the restaurant’s name and who are the main source of happiness and inspiration in their lives. At the same time, the word “sachi” means “child of joy” in Japanese. This warm attitude is transferred to each visitor of the institution, who is accepted as a family and provided with maximum comfort and care.
The story of one of the leading gourmet restaurants in the Egyptian capital began in the Heliopolis neighborhood, where Ayman Baky decided to bring his extensive experience in the hospitality business to open the first neighborhood fine dining restaurant. From the beginning, he set himself the goal to provide the highest quality service, so the Sachi team includes only the most creative and innovative chefs, bartenders, and music creators from different countries. Professionals who have achieved the greatest success in their fields have shared their talents with Sachi to take Egyptian hospitality to the next level.
Today Sachi is known in Egypt and beyond as an elegant and upscale dining Mediterranean fusion restaurant. The menu is a Mediterranean-Asian curated menu inspired by travels around the world. Using quality ingredients, the chefs create exquisite authentic dishes with clean flavors. You can find dishes from Japanese, Greek, and other national cuisines in the list of available dishes. The menu includes a variety of beef plates, homemade chateaubriand with pepper, béarnaise or bordelaise sauce, butterflied chicken, accompanied by sun-dried vegetables. If Japanese cuisine is your weakness, the experts of Luxury Lifestyle Awards recommend pleasing your taste buds with unparalleled sushi and sashimi with the salmon tataki and shrimp quinoa.
Sachi Heliopolis was the brand’s first, but not the only luxury restaurant. A year after the highly successful launch of the first establishment, Ayman Baky expanded the business and opened Sachi by the Sea, a seasonal restaurant and beach bar in Egypt’s North Coast at Hacienda’s compound. With the arrival of the holiday season, a party atmosphere begins to reign here, led by the best DJs from Egypt and the Middle East. A menu of dishes prepared with fresh, local ingredients is available to guests, and the bar features unique cocktails prepared by maestro bartenders.
The expansion of sophisticated hospitality continues: a new Sachi restaurant is coming soon in Sheikh Zayed. The discerning public will enjoy dishes from three cuisines – the central kitchen, the sushi counter, and the robata grill.
