We have pleasant time here. Abdoul and Mido the owners are the rare nice people in Egypt, especially in the touristy Luxor. They teach us how to play backgammon. Their food is good and they obtain the ingredients from their backyard farm or obtain from nearby small farms. They have internet access so we can share our picture of Memnon,... More

We have visited this restaurant many times during our stay in Luxor, and each time we have been met by Abdoul and Ali both very nice gentlemen, After the usual greetings we have enjoyed some very good and tasty dishes. With a unique view of the Colossus of Memnon just across the road from the restaurant while you enjoy your... More

Paid a return visit to this lovely restaurant last night. As usual, the food was excellent - tahina to die for, chicken curry, rice, vegetables, salad and a free pud of bananas in syrup. This is Egyptian cooking as it should be, simple and full of flavour. The free kharkaday drink was so good, we had two. To sit at... More

Memnon (not to be confused with Dreams of Memnon next door) is located across the road from the Colossi of Memnon on the West Bank of Luxor. We had popped in one lunch time for a few colas and decided to head back for dinner and ended up wishing we had gone earlier in the holiday and more often!!!! It's... More

To sit in an open fronted restaurant looking out onto the floodlit Collossi of Memnon for an evening meal is an unforgetable experience. The menu is varied,the smple dishes are delicious and the low prices amazing..My meal cost the £E36(around £3.30),and included a free fresh fruit dessert. and kharkaday drink..The service was prompt and friendly. I will return on my... More

We were staying in an apartment not far away ( villa Bahri )and our hosts brought us here - we had some of the best food of our holiday and the view was something else.

We've tried a couple of restaurants around and can tell you, if you appreciate genuine smiles, calm and helpful people and homely atmosphere just as much as you appreciate good meal, this is the place. We've seen the kitchen and can confirm everything is freshly prepared, no stocks that have been waiting for us in the fridge. There's also an... More

The restaurant is directly opposite the Colossi of Memnon - an awesome view especially at night! When you arrive you'll be given a drink of either fresh lemon with mint or iced karcady. Then just leave the food choice to them! You'll get an assortment of salads, vegetables and meats, and also a dessert but way beyond the standard set... More

We have been in Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan and Luxor...and this is by FAR the best Egyptian food we have eaten. Incredibly fresh...I would say that everything comes straight from the garden...lot's of fresh herbs...including basil. Favorites were the Aubergine salad, Kofta, baba ghaoung and vegetable tagen. As you arrive, they bring you a lemon-mint drink that is incredibly refreshing after... More
