We dined at King Tut for diinner- the lovely polite owner could not do enough for us. We were one of only 2 tables filled that night which was a great pity. The food was tasty, well prepared and well priced. It was on the main drag and I would definitely eat there again .

This is a first class restaurant offering a wide variet of food, the majority of which we sampled during our two week stay. Staff excellent and we were made to feel at home. If not on the menu just ask and they will do all they can to accommodate you.
