Secret Garden is a wonderful place to chill for a couple of hours after the hustle, bustle and heat of Luxor. Great food, good company and added bonus is free wi fi. Would recommend to any visitors to or residents of Luxor.

Please take our advice and never ever visit this place. The patron who is English is so rude and imagines that she is running the Savoy grill as having ordered our food-merely sandwiches- we were told to sit at the table. We made the point that we would be more comfortable in easy chairs- I am 85 and was told... More
