overpriced menu geared for tourists

The food has little choice in the form of set menus and overpriced. I can see mostly foreigners when we went for lunch. The food is decent though. They added a tax of 20% to the bill quoting city tax. But it is suppose to be 10% only in Luxor.

It's quick and edible, but there's no vibe. Just feels like a quick place to feed tourists. I wish we hadn't listened to our guide on this one.

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.
