“Food is not good but beer is cheap”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

It seems when looking at people at Sindbad's that they go there for beer. So go I. In past years whenever I tried food it's not good, last time my luch was mostly rice and chicken was so very small piece of bony chicken there was nothing to eat. Sindbad might be cheap but so is most of Luxor and you get more chicken and better food in some other local place. But I do enjoy my beer here. Luxor temple is near but you don't see much anything from the trees which make garden-like feeling though. You just need to check where you sit as all those birds do make a mess! Service is average, perhaps sometimes even terrible. Toilet is really horrible, keep lots of napkins with you - or if you can wait go to toilet somewhere else!

“good price beer and wine with stunning view of luxor temple”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

food was fine - we were told by an Egyptian friend that they call stuffed pigeon 'egyptian paella' and was a good description - more rice than anything else. but the veg moussaka and babaganou (sorry for spelling) were good. wine was partiucalr surprise and surroundings were wonderful with the illuminated temple. yes there are a few cats around and it is a bit basic but was nice place to sit and relax once the guy who owned the shop at the entrance had done with giving gifts!

“Ice cold in Luxor, and pretty cats!”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

OK - it is not the most luxurious cafe on the lane, but it is great fun! Food is very nice, and reasonable - especially the tahini and the aubergine dip. Stella is delicious and yu can sit and look at Luxor temple. Hassle is kept to a minimum, and one has but to admire the persistance of the shop owner in flogging table cloths and t-shirts! A shisha is a whole 5 LE - nd although they looked a bit askance to start with - women don't smoke them usually, they seems to calm down after a bit! We sat there every ay after sight seeing and enjoy every second of it - miss it already! ( One can also observe the shady old biddies husband hunting from the Egyptian talent... and see some very local 'characters' disporting themselves.
