I have eaten at Sofra four times since being in Luxor for a month. I like the authentic decor and antiques, which you just don't get in other well-reviewed Luxor restaurants on tripadvisor. Even the napkins are nice! It is a relaxing oasis of calm away from the hussle and hassle of Luxor's streets. The waiters are charming and even though service can be slow, this is probably all part of the relaxed feel of the place. It is also much more reasonably priced than some of the restaurants catering for westerners. At first I thought 'this place would be perfect if it sold wine', but on second thoughts, it probably keeps the lager louts out, maintaining quite a sophisticated yet unpretentious ambience. It is well worth a visit, especially if you are open-minded about trying Egyptain cuisine....you won't find chips on the menu! Oh and they serve the best strawberry juice in town.
