We'd had the luck to be in Cairo a few times and always looked forward to KOSHARY!! So it was a delight to find such an excellent rendition so close to home. Portions ample and very fairly priced and staff was great and accommodating. In...addition to the simple and authentic selections on the menu of Koshary by Misteka, the "Common Kitchen," where they are located, is a great place with many other food stalls there too. Think of a food court without the surrounding mall, rail station, or airport. Just a food court by itself. Clean, bright, and welcoming.More

Having IBS makes it very difficult to dine out, however, after I tried several platters at Koshary I was hooked!! I enjoyed the meals without any GI issues. My daughter and I loved the falafel, the patties, salad and dressing options specially the Avocado.. I...can’t stress on the different Dips Thank you KosharyMore

My husband got a gift certificate here, so we went here for lunch. The menu is all dairy and gluten free. We each had a bowl of koshary. With mine, I had a bowl of mushroom soup. It was tasty and very filling. This restaurant...is located in a big room that has other restaurants too. You order at the counter for one of the restaurants, and then there is a common seating area.More

I went here with my friend recently, we had previously traveled to Egypt together and had koshary there. The koshary we had at this place was so flavorful and delicious. I would definitely come back and as a vegetarian it is a perfect place to...eat.More

I got a very nicely priced small bowl and was shocked how delicious it was! I was expecting it to be okay, but it was much better than anticipated. Friendly, helpful staff.

I was so excited to hear that an Egyptian food joint opened in Maryland as I previously had to travel all the way to Virginia to eat koshary. I am happy to say that this place is the real deal! The koshary is exactly how...I remember it from when I visited Egypt last year. Also, it's vegan!! The option to add falafel to the meal is a great touch as well.More

What a nice change from the usual typical food choices that are in the area. The menu is simple but you can build it as complex as you want. The base, toppings and finishing touches are all healthy, vegan, gluten and dairy free. Her signature...sauce is delicious, I don’t know how she perfected the fried onion but you can always ask for more. You can exchange one item like chick peas for more of something else like the Fried Onions! I usually get the falafel balls which costs a little more. The mushroom soup was also just right, no overwhelming spices and you can get your bowl of koshary with a Salata Baladi which is chopped fresh vegetables and herbs and a choice of her homemade sauces. The location as others have mentioned is in The Common Kitchen in Clarksville that is shared by a few other businesses. Seating is limited but it is like eating street food in doors with all the flavors to enjoy.More

Was running errands and stopped at Koshary. The homemade mushroom soup caught my eye. (I love mushrooms!) The proprietor suggested topping the soup with a traditional garlic cream. Delicious!!! Certainly was a wow moment for me. Immediately recommended the soup to other customers as they...approached the counter. Look forward to trying other Egyptian temptations in the near future at this food court kiosk.More

You have to understand that this is about 4 or so food vendors sharing a common space (Clarksviile Commons). Seating (metal tables and stools) is very limited in the common area as mostly takeout oriented. We did the Koshary by Misteka as well as another...vendor (separate review). The food choices are very limited but with the ability to tailor your entree. Our Koshary bowl (Egyptian street food) with falafel was tasty but too salty for my wife. Don't recall them selling beverages but there is a cold water dispenser in the commons. It's worth the venture just to expand your culinary horizons. No ambiance again as its vendors sharing space and stuff. Hopefully you will not have to wait too long in line. Prepare to be a bit patient. It's like a street vendor stand but indoors.More
