As others have noted, the restaurant isn't open every day so it's best to call ahead and make a reservation. That said, the decor, the splendid food and the overall atmosphere make it an unforgettable meal in a marvelous little out-of-the-way neighborhood of Old Luxor.
With its splendid soups and salads with marvelous entrees, dinner with Mara at Salahadeen will be one of the highlights of your trip to Luxor--it certainly was one of mine.
It's located in the wonderful "Mara House" which would now be my top-recommendation for anyone thinking of visiting Luxor--an easy or carriage ride from anywhere you'd like to go. The rooms are beautifully decorated little "suites" and the staff is extremely fine. You might start with drinks on the rooftop and continue from there--or ask for an after dinner beverage overlooking the old town...
Your hostess, Mara, is a splendid Irish mystic whose taste and judgement is impeccable. Her "Mara House" is the "private Egypt" of which I had dreamed and her hospitality was marvelous!
She can also provide any tour of the area that you might wish--from Abydos to Karnak--and arrange for an airport pickup should you need one. The service is excellent!
Enjoy the experience--but remember to call ahead as it takes all day to prepare one of Mara's Egyptian feasts!
