“Clean and Safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Koshari is a great, local meal...but as a foreigner, you must be careful. Al-Tahrir Koshari is clean, safe, inexpensive and delicious. We've been to two locations: downtown near Tahrir Square and on Al Nasr Street in New Maadi. Both are consistently excellent, but the downtown location has a little more local charm.

“Super-cheap, authentic national dish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is a chain restaurant, but they serve up generous portions of kosheray, Egypt's national dish. Available in three sizes, a small is plenty for most people; a medium would feed two people. We accidentally ordered two mediums; I regretted wasting half of mine, but I was stuffed. The bill for two mediums and water came to 16 LE (about $2). This is a great place for budget travelers to get a reliably tasty meal.

“Comfort food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Egypt's national dish. I loooooove koshary and having tried a few different places, I find this one without a shadow of a doubt the very best. A pile of macaroni, spaghetti, rice, chickpeas and fried onions covered in tomato sauce and sprinkled with hot sauce and a dressing of garlic & vinegar may not sound like much, but OMG it is so good! Very indulgent as it is a major carb fest, not to be enjoyed too often for those of us who have to watch their weight... But well worth the extra calories!
