Restaurant Mohammed information
Mohammed’s is a blast of old-time Luxor, a simple, family-run restaurant attached to the owner’s mudbrick house, where charming Mohammed Abdel Lahi serves with his son Azab, while his wife cooks. The small menu includes meat grills, delicious chicken and duck as well as stuffed pigeon, a local speciality. Stella beer is usually available as well as Egyptian wine.
With an outdoor terrace and laid-back atmosphere, it is a great place to recharge batteries in the middle of a day exploring temples and tombs, or to linger in the evening, but call ahead to make sure it is open. They can also organise a picnic in the desert or on a felucca upon demand.
