Muhammed NazlanNairu Chef de Cuisine
With posts in Bahrain and Kuala Lumpur before coming to Cairo, Chef Muhamad Nazlan learned the art of sushi making at a young age and went on to perfect his Thai and Chinese cooking skills over the years. At Nairu, Cairo's first Pan Asian restaurant and lounge, he introduces guests to the vibrant flavours of Thai, Japanese and Indian cuisine.
“It's an exciting opportunity to introduce such diverse, rich cuisines that have unique flavours to Cairo guests. Our ideal setting – a modern Asian setting overlooking the Nile – and our vibrant menu surely create the right recipe to make this one of Cairo’s trendiest dining scenes.”
More Dining Options
