“Amazing Koshary!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Our tour operator (Ahmad from Egypt Tours Portal) gave us a choice of two options for lunch during one of our sightseeing days in Cairo, one of which was Abou Tarek. We decided to try it out given it is a traditional Egyptian dish and the best compliment I can give it is that I am never satisfied with a non-meat meal apart from for breakfast but Koshary at Abou Tarek was extraordinary! This is a wonderful dish cooked absolutely perfectly - we tried it again somewhere else and it just wasn't the same.

If you're in Cairo, you have GOT to try Koshary at Abou Tarek.

“Takeaway heaven”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A very worthwhile visit when you want Egyptian food at its best.
Make sure that you are hungry because the portions are not small.

“Must try it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Good value for money and an experience itself. Once in Egypt who wouldn't want to try this?
It is very cheap,and very tasty. The restaurant has 2 floors, on the base floor there is the take away bit and mostly only Egyptian man sit, the first floor is mainly occupied with Egyptian families. top floor is the best and this is where the tourists were seated. The service is amazingly quick, only koshery as a main course and it comes in 2 sizes: medium or large. The rice pudding desert is not as great, but also worth to try once.
