7 Days 7 Ways Restaurent in Luxor

Post by Windygale2 »

hello everyone can anybody let me know if this restaurant has now reopened?
on our previous visits last year it was closed but have heard that maybe that is now not correct.
used to love the stella! the food was always good quality and Ashraf the owner was friendly company.

Any info would be much appreciated
Thanks Tony

I remember this place was opened and managed many years ago by the two Johns. The place was a hive of activity, had to book or wait for a table most days. The food was well priced and of good quality. Typical English fare. Many people moan about having English food served up in the restaurants here, but this place sold it as fast as it could produce it. And yes, it is fair to say that there was a lot of what are typically termed as Who2's favorite guests, the kiss me quick brigade. The real spenders that know how to have a good time.

When they left for a new venture, the place slowly deteriorated to what remained to be for several years, a dive. Inconsistent quality of food, bad service and a lack of cleanliness. I know nothing of the last three years history of the place so can't comment. The success of this restaurant, and others like it, were all based on tourist numbers, not necessarily on the reputation of the establishment its self. Bums needed seats, so they filled the places every night.

With the exception of the Indian, I have grown tired of sitting down, reading the menu, choosing what I fancy only to be told ''we not have.'' Or seeing a waiter rush out to buy ingredients that they obviously do not have at a speed that would indicate to the casual onlooker that the place may be on fire. Thus producing an even longer wait for your choice to be served.

I do not go out much, a personal choice, but do look forwards to my Thursday night out with my friends. Just to see some fresh faces each week, chat and laugh. I also utilize this night to do all my shopping. But now, having suffered several months of black out's every Thursday, I do not bother eating. It is too uncomfortable with a sweat saturated shirt, even your undies get drenched with the sweat. I am seriously considering not to bother anymore, get my shopping done during the daytime.

Last week we fancied a change of venue, so paid a visit to the Italian on the same street. Sods law kicked in, they had a power cut but the Indian didn't, just several doors away.

That's a very silly one liner.
