“Beautiful Food in Beautiful Surroundings.”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

4 of us ate in these beautiful gardens and we were not disappointed when the food arrived.

It was perfectly presented, very well cooked Egyptian food. We were delighted by the entire experience and will definitely return.

No alcohol served but we were allowed to bring our own wine.

Just up from the local ferry on the right, highly recommended.

“Best Egyptian food I ate.”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

Authentic well cooked and presented. Restaurant is run by a charming owner in a beautiful setting. The menu is small and changes slightly. I can recommend kofte? in sauce, great french fries together with a selection of rice and vegetable dishes and to drink cold hibiscus tea.
To get there take the public ferry [1 LE, opposite the Luxor Temple] As you get off the ferry you can see the restaurant ahead a few minutes away past a few stalls.
Having eaten at an upmarket restaurant in Luxor paying triple the price for an inferior meal, I returned to African Garden several times.

“Best food at best price”
Reviewed 31 December 2012

We went here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. We went away very happy both times. For a family of four we ordered two tagines and it came with salad, deep fried aubergine or home made fries, rice, bread, a vegetable dish and fruit for desert all for the price of the tagine. The juices were of the most generous size we had at any place in Luxor. All for LE110. The juices were LE10. Amazing value and yummy to boot. It has a nice garden too.
