THE BEST PLACE TO EAT IN LUXOR! Food is fantastic - service is great and the fruit juices are just the best. Pick and mix your starters and main courses are fantastic! And it's still cheap

Enjoyed a very lovely evening meal. The duck (batt baladi) was delicious. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Thanks!

My meal here with friends was very disappointing and not for the first time. The house itself is very special and the mezze to start was beautifully served, however the main course was sadly lacking. I had some kofta, nicely presented but very greasy. The koshary to accompany it was lovely. My partners lamb on the bone was tough and... More

I like the way the restaurant looks. The food is excellent, and the service is more than excellent. Special thanks goes to Ragab.

I would like to say that we were part of a group of seven people and this review reflects my option only. Out of the seven people four had a pleasant experience. This is my third visit to the restaurant in the last 2 years, the first visit was just myself and my partner it was a bad food experience... More

I tried this on my first night in Luxor and wasn't disappointed. The staff are friendly, the food fresh and tasty and the location upstairs, a great place for enjoying a meal. I wish I had gone back before I left, but was determined to try some of the other restaurants in the area. Great selection of Egyptian food. A... More

This restaurant is reviewed highly in all the guidebooks and, as foodies, we were really excited about our meal there. Sadly it did not live up to the hype. The interior is, on the surface, quite special - but as we went to sit on a bench/sofa, it was covered in thick dust. The waiter said he would clean it... More

While I give thumbs up for the atmosphere at Sofra, we were unimpressed with the food. Spices all seems to be toned down to suit less adventurous eaters, and we didn't see a single Egyptian eating there. I can understand that some visitors would prefer blander food, but checking with us first would have saved us some disappointment.

We ate here twice, the food and service was so good. Traditional Egyptian dishes were delicious. A restaurant with comfort, character and good prices. Highly recommended. Sadly, not many customers due to current slow down in visitors.
