SHARM EL SHEIKH, EGYPT--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2014) - Egypt has plenty of delicious food of its own, from koshari to ful, but sometimes locals get a craving for something different. At this 5-star hotel in Sharm El Sheikh, diners can enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine, including sushi, sashimi and teppanyaki, at the award-winning Kona Kai.

The only teppanyaki restaurant in Sharm El Sheikh with an authentic Japanese menu, Kona Kai highlights the skills of its talented chefs with live-cooking stations, where the sound of sizzling flames and fast-moving blades adds drama and excitement to eating out.

The Sharm El Sheikh luxury hotel restaurant features popular all-you-can-eat, fixed-price sushi menus on Tuesdays and Fridays. For 248 LE, enjoy miso soup, 10 pieces of maki mono, nine pieces of nigiri sushi and a choice of fried ice cream, fried banana with ice cream or fruit salad with ice cream for dessert. A second menu, available for 310 LE, offers slightly different sushi options with six pieces of maki mono, eight pieces of sashimi and five pieces of nigiri sushi. Fixed-price teppanyaki set menus are also available, ranging from LE 261 to LE 373.

A small but carefully selected beverage menu includes sake, local and international beers and wines by the glass.
