Amoun Restaurant, Luxor

Sharaia el-Karnak
East Bank
Egypt's insider take:

Locals and visitors alike wrangle for an outdoor table at this plain but popular eatery in the heart of the Sharia el-Karnak Tourist Bazaar. It's an ideal place to watch the pedestrian parade go by and enjoy simple Egyptian dishes. The food is well prepared if uninspired, covering enough bases of Egyptian and Mediterranean cooking to satisfy everyone. Dishes include skewered grilled meats, chicken, fish, lots of rice dishes, and even pizza. Amoun also stays open late, until midnight or so. Its neighbor El-Hussein—virtually identical, but with food and service a notch lower—catches a lot of the overflow. Neither establishment serves alcohol.
