Cairo Schwarma

Reading Time: 3 minutes


Cairo Schwarma is situated in Lansdowne in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town (Update. They have now moved to Seapoint. Address at the end of this article). They are a muslim owned restaurant that has been serving good quality food since 1994. They are located 3km from the Cape Town CBD.


Our Experience:

Cairo Schwarma is like a little piece of Egypt in Cape Town. From when we entered we experienced the warmth and friendly service by all of the staff. They really take pride in their service and make the customers experience as good as they possibly can. The seating area is large and comfortable.

We ordered a Lamb and Beef Schwarma on a Laffa which is a wrap as well as a chicken boss burger together with some chips.

The Schwarma’s are made in front of the customer which is really nice. You can see everything come together which adds to the experience. The owner, Mohamed, is very involved and ensures everything is running smoothly and the service is nothing short of excellent.


You can order your food in 3 flavours, mild, medium and hot. We took medium for all as we had the kids with us. If you prefer spicy food we would recommend going for the hot option. The food was served with a separate bowl of chillies which were absolutely amazing and provided the kick I was looking for while the kids could still enjoy the medium spiciness.

The lamb and beef schwarma’s were delicious. The hummus in the schwarma really enhanced the taste. The burger too was divine. It has 2 pieces of fillet chicken. It was very saucy which I liked a lot.The chips had a delicious spice and had a nice crisp to it.



There is a wide variety on the menu which also includes pizzas and grills. They also have some amazing specials at the moment, you can get 4 chicken/beef schwarmas for R150 or 4 chicken burgers for R100, which is great value for money. They also have a security outside the premises during Cairo Schwarmas trading hours. Together with the amazing service and delicious food you definitely want to try them out if you haven’t tried them yet. You can also order Cairo Schwarma through UberEats and Mr Delivery.
