The only way to describe this restaurant is absolutely perfect. From the decor to the food nothing can be faulted. The nearest quality I could find is Rick Steins and worth travelling to Luxor just for the fantastic food and ambience. I have never been to a restaurant before where ever detail down to the cutlery has been thought through... More

A charming place with an excellent hostess who chatted to everyone individually. The decor is lovely . The food a choice of English or Egyptian. Good to did for a. My fish and chips has a modern twist being bass and my husband's individual lemon meringue pie was glorious. A must eat experience whilst in luxor .

We agree with everyone's positive review on this dining experience. From the moment you walk in you forget about the craziness of the streets. The service is top notch and there is no better food. The mutton entree was delicious and was the chicken Kabos for the appetizer. Of course we tried the lemon pie, marvelous. Perfect ending to our... More

I found this restaurant by chance and not because I checked it out on Tripadvisor. I asked someone coming out what it was like and he said he always ate there when in Luxor. I now know why. It is very clean, the food is nothing short of excellent, the beer is nice and cold, and there is a friendly... More

Discovered The Lantern Room maybe 5 or 6 years ago and have enjoyed eating here on every visit to Luxor ever since. Debbie is front of house and her husband, Nasser, is the chef. Beautiful menu, with daily specials, beautifully cooked, presented and served! I highly recommend the ambience, food and service! All taxi drivers know where it is!

During my recent visit to Luxor, I had the pleasure of eating dinner at Lantern Room 2 or 3 times. The restaurant is clean and tidy - always a cool and calm respite from the heat and overall chaos of Luxor. The food is fantastic - always well-prepared. One night I enjoyed the prawn appetizer and the cottage pie...followed by... More

Debbie makes everyone welcome which is great because we have walked out of one Luxor restaurant because of this. The food is lovely with a wide choice and reasonable prices. Will definitely be returning. Nice atmosphere as well. Well done Debbie.
