nice set meals

It was a nice lunch after a gruelling morning through the tombs and temples. Usually,set lunches can be boring but at El Hussein, a set meal consists of so many platters plus the main. The kofta was so goooooood!

We wanted to go to Sofra but our guide insisted we come here for lunch. The restaurant is situated in a small independent building. On the ground floor the staff was busy packing lunch boxes for the staff of a hospital. The second floor is occupied by the restaurant. We were the only diners throughout. The place offers set menus... More

We liked the food. Service was fast and waiters were friendly. Portions were big. We had set menus. Actually one set menu may be enough for two people.

Good selection of both European and Egyptian dishes served with a smile. Limited selection of drinks as can be expected but, if you wish to bring your own - no problem.

Here i have eaten just an ordinary meal, which was ok, and nothing to negative to remark on, but on the other hand not special. Soup as a starter, then the usual salad, humus, bread,.... As a main i had grilled chicken, again a ok but not special (served with rice and fries).

stayed at Hilton Luxor and took dinner 3 times there during my 10 days stay. There are 7 or 8 set menus and each comprises of 3 kinds of salad or pickles, main dish and sweets. That is why I like this restaurant much besides the taste itself. The price is, including one drink and tax and service charges, around... More

Any driver or any tour guide who takes you here gets commission, so your bill is considerably higher because of this. Each meal was 85 then they add their own tip and tax. We payed over 350 for two meals and drinks and our driver got a nice chunk. The food however was very tasty, very Egyptian, and the service... More
