If there's one place you have to eat while in Egypt, it's Tutankhamon in Luxor. Situated near the banks of the Nile you have a fantastic view over the Nile and Luxor, with Luxor Temple right across the river. The food is excellent, especially the chicken curry with apple, banana and coconut.

Dropped in here for lunch having not read anything, but the owner was lovely so we gave it a shot. Food was a delightful surprise. The menu changes every day, we got bread, dips, a spinach and hummus tagine, and a vegetable one, plus chicken curry with apple, banana and coconut. Yum!! Would absolutely recommend. We sat in the bit... More

After a tiring day trip visiting the valley, we were done by 4pm and went to the banks to cross to the east bank for some late lunch. My wife suggested we take a stroll along the West Bank corniche to check for any restaurants. And then we spotted Tut Ankh Amon - a sleepy restaurant in the sleepy town.... More

The food was amazing, authentic and the best wee had in Egypt. We tried other places in Luxor and Cairo and the home made food at Tutankhamon was by far the best. Don't even get me started on the falafels. Wow. If you are going to Luxor make sure you visit Tutankhamon's. I am vegetarian and Mohammed had always something... More

Came here for New Years Eve Dinner, and wasn't disappointed. Due to Egypt's lull in tourism recently, we had the entire place to our selves, and were seated on outdoor tables by the nile rather than on the roof, which was under some construction. We had the daily special of chicken curry with apple banana and raisin, and it was,... More

Good Egyptian food with a gourmet flair. The service was friendly and the view is wonderful. My taste in foods however runs very different from the usual Egyptian cusiene but this was good. The only thing I didn't like was a wait. We were hungry and we almost thought they had forgotten us. When the food came we were fine... More

This restaurant is listed twice on Tripadvisor as both "Tut Ankh Amoun" and "Tutankhamon". Same restaurant. It is located on the West Bank nearby the public ferry (just to the south of the dock). It is the first of many restaurants you encouter which overlook The Nile. It is also the best of them. The owner was a chef at... More

No, not the kind from the 1970s - this is a wholly different proposition. Some of the best food I have had in Egypt and in one of the best settings in a shaded riverside setting on the west bank of the Nile. As others have said, the portions are large, so go there hungry and with time to enjoy... More
