Really nice koshari

Cheap, tasty, lovely service and great place for a quick lunch. I love this carb fest dish and while lots of places sell it all over Cairo this is one of the best places to taste it ( except from a few street sellers who blow everyone out the water)

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.
