Description: The Salahadeen Feast - 15 different local dishes served over 3 courses - an experience to savor and remember!
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Salahadeen offers a set menu, which includes three courses with 15 dishes of fresh home-cooked Egyptian food to share. Most dishes consist of vegetables, and the vegetarian options are not cooked in a meat broth as in so many other places. The food is served as if it were an Egyptian home – knives and forks are offered but guests are encouraged to eat in the Egyptian way by dipping bread in the various dishes. Dinner starts promptly at 7pm, but the bar opens for predinner drinks at 6pm; alcohol is also available in the restaurant..

Great Restaurant at Mara House. The food was very delicious and served very Arabian style. The restaurant décor is also done in a very Egytian/Arabian style and filled with wonderful custom made wooden chairs with beautiful tapestries on the wall

This is not on my scale a "feast" but rather an honest meal that helps beginners like me understand how to enjoy Egyptian food: Two soups are served first, and after that a large plateau of 12 hot and cold mezze and one hot meat dish. Everything was very good but the chicken tagine was particularly tasty. I had tried tagines before without being bowled over but the way it was served here, with all the different mezze available as sides, worked really well.

Mara's house itself is very impressive, the rooms are very well-decorated and with great atmosphere. Perfect setting for such a meal. Also a carefully selected range of handicrafts made me wish we had come earlier during our trip to Luxor.

We will definitely return to Mara's when comng back to Luxor.

We had a wonderful evening at Salahadeen @ Mara's house - the food was to die for (many thanks to the chef and kudos to his enthusiasm!)! This was the best dinner experience we had in Luxor, and we strongly recommended it. The place is in a non-touristy area of Luxor - which we found interesting and insightful to see.

Dining at Salahadeen requires a bit of preparation as they are open only if they is a sufficient number of guests. So best is to get in touch with Mara before your trip to Luxor, e.g., via e-mail and suggest a couple of dates that may work for you, or call while you are in Luxor. We found all this uncomplicated and very much worth the effort!

A 15 course meal of Egyptian food in a real Egyptian decor and ambiance!
A memorable night at Mara House restaurant.
If you happen to be in Luxor on one of those nights it is offered, don't think twice
