“Not quite hitting the mark”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place was recommended by the rep at our resort as being somewhere to try authentic Egyptian food (or English if we preferred). For me it was rather a disappointment. The place was empty when we arrived (but it could have been a little early in the evening) so the waiter was very pleased to welcome us in. Conversation was nearly impossible due to the enormous air-con machine placed a couple of feet away from the table - at one point it blew over a half-empty water bottle! Dishes arrived decorated with hollowed-out onions with birthday cake-size candles in them, stuck in a slice of courgette. Is this something traditional? The staff were attentive and very friendly but I'm not quite sure what the restaurant is trying to be. The owners of Snobs are clearly very proud of their chef (there were newspaper cuttings on the walls about him) but it's almost as if this restaurant is trying to be a meeting place for ex-pats who might very occasionally try something a little spicy, rather than offering the visitor a real taste of Egypt.

“Good people good food!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I'm a firm believer that when food is prepared by someone who is happy and passionate about their cuisine that the meal tastes better. This is certainly the case at Snobs. The team who work there are simply lovely, you almost feel that you get to know them personally and this great atmosphere comes through in the cooking. When you read the menu at Snobs you know you can relax. My husband and I like to try the more authentic dishes but our teenagers are a little less adventurous but (here comes the cliche) there literally is something for everyone here which makes choosing your evening restaurant in Luxor a breeze. Snobs every time! Thanks guys.

“Something Special”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is a Resturant you must NOT miss when in Luxor. Whether on Holiday or visiting friends this is well worth the time taken to enjoy the Lovely Food and Attmosphere. They have an exciting menu and you'll be tempted by much more than a couple of dishes!!

From local cuisine or English food (if you must) also there is a vegetarian option. Their Lamb dishes are Divine!!

Lovely desserts, fabulous Teas of Coffees to complete your meal.. I have reconmended to all my friends this great resturant, and can't wait to back and try more of their delicious food.
