During our trip to Luxor we picked the oriental food option for lunch and we had it at EL Hussein. The guys are very friendly and smiling, the service and the food quality were very good. We had Sheish Kabab and it was very tasty.

Our driver and guide arranged lunch here and we liked the lentil soup so much we had seconds. The small plates of salad were also nice and the lamb not too spicy. The fish had a lovely batter, not too thick and my husband enjoyed the grilled chicken. We enjoyed lunch so much we went back for dinner.

I wish I had decided not to revisit this restaurant as the entire experience was awful. It no longer lives up to its former reputation and I strongly suggest you give it a miss. The menu remains the same as over a year ago, but you will be lucky if they can offer you even 1% of what is on... More

We had a really nice lunch at El Hussein while on our tour of Luxor. We were welcomed by the staff with a smile and we had a nice table. Our guides arranged our lunch menu and have to say, it was all great! The lunch started with a nice homemade soup and then many little plates were brought to... More

The idea of trip advisor is for us all to give each other help & advice,i love luxor & the people but this place is an insult, you should first read the bad rievues on this place because the bad things people say about this place WILL happen to you, regarding your bill and the tax they try to put...

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Luxor when I want to have a traditional meal. The lentil soup is exceptional and is the best I have tasted. My friends had a variety of meals and were all very happy with the quality and taste of their food. The kitchen was happy to prepare a vegetarian meal, which was... More

Our tour guide decided to bring us here to have a taste of authentic Egyptian cuisine. It was pretty good enough. It was tasty but not that I would be looking forward to visit again. It found it weird that they were not giving a menu. Instead, the waiter just described the food in front of me. I trusted our... More

Avoid This restaurant primarily caters to van- and bus-loads of tour groups visiting Luxor coming in mainly for lunch, and so expect poor / mediocre food and service and high prices leading to poor value for money. We went as it was 10 minute walking distance from the Hilton Luxor where we were staying, and given a Fodor's guide recommendation... More
