Jamboree is in the centre of the souk near to the New Om Kalthom coffee shop. It used to be elsewhere but unfortunately the building was pulled down whilst Luxor seems to be going through a 'demolition' stage. Yes if you are walking you have to get past the insistent souk sellers but for me it was worth it! You could of course get a taxi to drop you off in a side street adjacent to the restaurant and eliminate most of this or walk around the outer perimeter of the souk then cut down the side street.

There is stairs up to Jamboree so bear this in mind if things like this are a problem.
On entering the restaurant you are in the air con indoors dining area. To the left is the outdoor dining which was nicely set out. Views overlooking the souk kept us entertained for a while! Menu consists of egyptian and english foods.

We ate there a few times over our 2 week holiday. Loved the meat moussaka, chicken, tagen and the sea bass(very tasty). Rice was cooked well and tasted delicious. Salad bar is available and there is quite a bit of choice. The tahina was also very good. Portions were quite generous and I was never able to finish any of my meals.

Pricewise - Just for an example one night we had chicken, moussaka, salad, bread, rice, 2x soft drinks, 1 ice cream total cost was 87le. Beer was 15le, wine 20le glass and most soft drinks 7le.

Service was very good and the waiters always checked everything was ok with your meals.
Toilets were always clean. I actually asked to see the kitchens and was shown it with no hesitation. Happy to say it looked very clean ;-)

Happened to talk to one of the owners one night (without knowing he was initially) and he told us that he is hopefully going to make the top level of the restaurant into a coffe/shisha bar. Would think this would be nice if he pulls it off.
Would definitely recommend at least one visit here.
