The Legacy & Tradition



® Damas


A Family Tradition

Our Founder, Mr. Zuhayr Ramadan


Founded in 1956, Semiramis is a family owned and operated company.

The company is located in Damascus, Syria and Cairo, Egypt.


Mr. Zuhayr Ramadan, also known as Abu Saadi, established Semiramis pastries in 1956.

At nineteen Mr. Ramadan was already considered a Master in his field. His first shop was located in the old city quarter of Damascus.


Later, Mr. Ramadan moved to the Salhieh Market before settling in the current location on Abu-Rumanneh in 1978. In 1995 Mr. Ramadan rebuilt the shop from the ground up, reopening in 1998. A nearby state of the art production facility was completed in 2000. In 2012 his son’s initiated the next phase and opened a new facility in Cairo, Egypt.


His commitment and dedication to quality earned him the reputation as one of the finest pastry makers in the Middle East. Semiramis continues to produce exquisite pastries and sweets using Mr. Ramadan’s original recipes.


Mr. Ramadan's sons have continued to manage all aspects of the business. They have kept true to their heritage and family tradition of quality and excellence. They have expanded the reputation of Semiramis pastries and sweets throughout the world.


Although many have tried to imitate us, Semiramis remains the "Gold Standard".
