My guide took me there for authentic Egyptian cuisine. It is a huge and clean restaurant where prices are transparent and you are comfortably there to just try out on the dishes that they offer. After the Karnak temples and thus not too close to Centre of Luxor, the food is great- the staff too and the cost is more... More

Our guide took us to this restaurant 3 times. Their lentil soup and fish in main course was delicious. They also served various side dishes. The second time we went they served more dishes as we had returned to them. One of my family members broke a glass on the first visit but they were so calm about it that... More

Tried this on recommendation by a guide. The service was impeccable and the food unbelievably fast to arrive. The ordering is simple as it is a set menu with soup, salads, bread, dessert all included. The choice was very wide from mixed grill to fish or pigeon. The pigeon and chicken were excellent. Would come back again.

Very clean restaurant, do not let the outside turn you off. Excellent Egyptian dishes served in large portions for a reasonable price. We ate here several times and were not disappointed.

In the centre of Luxor this was the restaurant of choice by our local Egyptologist guide Ayman and we were not to be disappointed by his selection. Straight away we could tell, despite the rather deceptive exterior, that this was a preferred restaurant amongst local Egyptians as well as tourists who know where to eat well. The upstairs seating gave... More
