It's crowded and noisy, the tables small but this restaurant never disappoints. 30 years we've been coming here and every meal has been a rewarding experience with unusual african food with intricate flavours inventively and discerningly blended. Add to that a large comprehensive selections of wines and beers from around the globe and efficient cheery service. What more could one... More

Fabulous experience here. Such a variety of meals to choose from across the African continent (and others). I had the tak tak sardines to start followed by bbq jerk pork ribs (not necessarily african!). Range of different breads, rices to accompany your meal. Great cocktails as well - all in all the best restaurant we encountered during our stay in... More

I have always driven by this place, it is always very busy and I have heard good things about it but I'm sorry to say I cannot understand why. The food was very average and tasteless, we understood been a Friday night it would be busy but really? The first diners in our party received their main meals with others... More

first time to radio cairo and a great surprise was in store as we were a little bit apprehensive, there was no need to worry as the lamb shanks that we all had were an absolute delight as was the service from the staff and i have no hesitation on recommending radio cairo to all my friends,

We are regular visitors to this restaurant, as it is nearby. Love the variety of delicious food, well-priced. Drinks list is also pretty good. If I had one criticism is that staff can occasionally be a little slow, but overall this restaurant gets a big recommend from me.

As soon as you walk in the door you get a feeling this is going to be a good experience. There is a good vibe, with music being pumped out in the back ground, waiters moving around the room, the busy bar and the aroma of spice. The food is North African leaving a tingle on your lips. Very delicious.... More

Visiting Sydney and went for a late Radio Cairo Sunday dinner after a movie at Hayden Orpheum which is just across from Military Road at Cremorne. Looking at the menu I almost got goose bumps; incredibly the menu is a replica from at least 15 years ago with the good old BONGO bread; Negombo Harlmassa (W.A. whitebait with sweet hot... More

Approach this place as if you're having dinner at the home of a well-travelled Auntie. Your Auntie has painted the walls too brightly because she's a yellow person (from her time in Africa) and clutters them with knickknacks gathered on her travels. Her place is packed to the brim with furniture because she loves to entertain, so you'd do well... More

RADIO CAIRO is my expression of cultural diversity at it's most positive.
I'm of Sri Lankan (Wijeyekoon), Irish (Kennedy), German Jew (De Worms), Portuguese (Perera) and English (Martin) origin!
The "Spice and Human trade" organically created me and the cuisine at RADIO CAIRO
People and food from China to South Asia to India to Europe to Africa to Caribbean to Southern Americas centred in
Slave Island, Kandy and Jaffna Peninsula, Sri Lanka.
