Good Egyptian food with a gourmet flair. The service was friendly and the view is wonderful. My taste in foods however runs very different from the usual Egyptian cusiene but this was good. The only thing I didn't like was a wait. We were hungry and we almost thought they had forgotten us. When the food came we were fine... More

This restaurant is listed twice on Tripadvisor as both "Tut Ankh Amoun" and "Tutankhamon". Same restaurant. It is located on the West Bank nearby the public ferry (just to the south of the dock). It is the first of many restaurants you encouter which overlook The Nile. It is also the best of them. The owner was a chef at... More

No, not the kind from the 1970s - this is a wholly different proposition. Some of the best food I have had in Egypt and in one of the best settings in a shaded riverside setting on the west bank of the Nile. As others have said, the portions are large, so go there hungry and with time to enjoy... More

Mahmud (Ihope that is how to spell it) was friendly and suggested the chicken curry with banana and apples, a... More

On the West Bank very near to our hotel, Nile Valley Hotel. The chicken curry was tasty, not too hot with lots of accompaniments.

A small restaurant that does not have a menu so lots of tourist just pass by. Conveniently located close to the ferries on the West Bank it has an outside eating area overlooking the Nile and a roof terrace too. There are usually only two dishes - dish of the day and rosemary chicken but all food is freshly cooked... More
