Best if you speak Arabic or French as his English is limited but well worth the effort. If yu give him notice, he will even knock up specials like duck a l'orange.

We had a nice visit to Tutankhamon restaurant. The owner was very friendly and spoke to us in French, even though we're Irish, it was nice to converse in French with a bit of English thrown in,

No menu, just whatever the chef created that day. We were served by three generations of the family which gave a lovely family feel. The dish served was a beef with rice and vegetables followed by a dessert of fruit.

Unfortunately the roof top was closed for renovations so we were seated across the road on the bank of the nile. This was nice watching the boats at night.

Must be the best place to sip a drink and have lunch or dinner after an exhaustingly hot day among the ruins and tombs. We did so twice, and were treated both times to a terrific, real Egyptian meal (yes, real vegetables and great meat) and for desserts (we were the only guests at the time) a nice conversation with the staff. It's near the ferry, so you'll have to shake off the usual hasslers, which gets to be routine pretty quick in Luxor. But once on the roof terrace, with the sun going down and a shimmering view of the Nile, you'll want to stay for hours...

My family has lived in Cairo for 4 years and today's visit to Hag Mahmoud's Tutankhamun Restaurant in Luxor has treated us to the best Egyptian food we've ever had. Every dish on the table was fresh, flavorful and ample for my hungry crowd. Our favorites included the main dish of chicken curry with banana and pear, spicy meatballs, and gourmet moussaka. Before running his own place, Hag worked in the kitchens of several top hotels in Luxor but probably got most of his culinary flair from years cooking for the French archaeological facility. His place overlooks the Nile and is a block south of the ferry landing on the West Bank's Rue Gauche. Family run and Hag's adorable grandkids serve and bus the tables.
