A really nice, quiet restaurant just a stone's throw away from the craziness of touristy downtown Luxor. It was very quiet and the food and service were excellent.

Authentic local food, great pricing and wonderful staff. The restaurant is a little off the beaten track, but it definitely a must. You will most likely go back for a second (or even third) visit.

Without a doubt, the best place to eat Egyptian food in town! Exquisite details and friendly staff. Garden is a better option for lunch (not too hot in summer time)

This restaurant looked promising from the outside but once we went upstairs to the dining area, it seemed just as dusty as outside. Don't come here if you expect air condition because all they have are old fans circulating dirt all over your food. I...More
