I just LOVE Koshary el ta7rir. I made all of my friends try it and they all loved it too. I am not that into koshary, though It's just irresistible for me. However, prices are high compared to portions and to other competitors too.

Cheap restaurant with their star dish consisting of lentil, rice and pasta topped with tomato sauce and fried onions. Probably the right thing after a hard day's work in the land of your feudal lord, its just fit for peasants, not something you go to enjoy during a visit to Cairo.

Nice place, tasty food They have another branch in nasr city. Koshary is a traditional old food which Egyptians admire. I hope you will enjoy the food and the atmosphere.

you will like it if you want to eat fresh koshari especially the red sauce and the dakaa sauce and good view in the down town but likely to go there at night after 5.00 pm you will like the atmosphere

You can only order one thing here, and that's koshary. A very cheap dish containing lentil, rice and pasta topped with tomato sauce and fried onions. a hearty meal, but this is not the place to sit and enjoy dinner. Just eat and go.
