“Amazing! You will not be disappointed.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Sadly, I'm a procrastinator when it comes to my reviews but thanks to my handy notes I can still RAVE about how wonderful this dining experience was during my time in Luxor.

First off, how nice are the owners? They're wonderful.

I had the Chicken Tagen (lovely!) and the Lentil Soup (I wanted to lick my bowl)

Please visit if you're in Luxor. You will not be disappointed.

“This restaurant is a must visit- your assured of a great evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Once discovered, people always come back, travelling from as far as from the Karnak Sofitel. Why?
That’s simple: Customers know they are going to receive a warm welcome, good service, excellent value and a wide range of beautifully cooked options of Egyptian & European cuisine.

Vegetarians are well catered for here with multiple choices

Owners Mahmoud and Laura will go the extra mile to ensure you have a great evening here.

As an added bonus you may make some new friends here, as many good people who don’t frequent the local bar scene are regulars here

“Stick to the European menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

You could have very different experience here if you are trying different menus. I had an Egyptian meal and found it dry and bland. My partner, however, enjoyed his food.

“A surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We very much enjoyed eating at The Jewel of the Nile. The service and food were good and the price very reasonable. The total bill for 3 people was a little over £20. It was surprising to find that the owner had gone to the same school as me in Berkshire. It was a pleasant dining experience.

“Lovely staff great food a bit random but exciting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

A short walk from the Steinberger and Sonesta hotels, down a slightly scary back street, this is well worth a visit. Laura was charm personified and even though we waited a long time for our main course - it was very busy and popular - she was in the middle of organising a fabulous cake for one of the guests so it was completely forgivable. All the kitchen staff rushed out with gongs and saucepans and spoons to sing happy birthday - a slightly mad event but loads of smiling and genuine warmth!

The food was lovely - good value - we'd definately go again!
