This is more of a lunch than a supper restaurant. There is a communal table with some bar-type seating on the side which is ok if you come expecting it. The food was very good and the restaurant had a happy, modern vibe. The hawawshi...More

Zooba doesn't serve any alcoholic beverages so for a good plate of Koshary and perhaps a salad or a sandwich with some fresh juice and some dessert, you can go up to 80 or 90 including service and taxes. I would recommend... More
