Sat on the terrace which is beautifully decorated and full of atmosphere. Authentic furniture and menus, with friendly and welcoming staff. This was probably the best Egyptian meal we had on our trip. Food was delicious and reasonably priced.

What a pleasant surprise! The only unfortunate aspect was that I discovered this on my last of three days in Luxor, or I would have gone there more often.
