Vegetarians are very well accommodated. We had a fantastic lentil soup 👌🏼, followed by a series of dips, small plates warm pita, and an excellent vegetarian moussaka. One portion sufficed for two. We came back a second time, and hope to return again.

El Hussein is the best restaurant in Luxor. There is a set menu, which is very good value and consists of Soup and a main course served with Bread, Rice, Salad and Vegetables. The restaurant is very clean with excellent service. Highly recommend a visit.

It's the best food i had in Egypt in terms of local food, however it was the priciest compared to other local restaurants. There is another one, almost same quality, called Oum hashim , also good but cheaper.

The meal was more than enough to fill us up. It was good but the chicken and lamb were a bit dry for my tastes. The service was friendly and good..nice staff.

Recommended by tour company, and as always wherever you go in Egypt prices are hiked for tourists, though to be fair this does not only happen in Egypt. Anyway we had a window seat upstairs watching the world go by. We had lentil soup with lemon, it was really really tasty, we were offered more but we refused as we... More
