Having been to Egypt, I was thrilled to finally discover Fava Pot with its Egyptian dishes. The people are delightful, and sit outside if you can. The interior is very very cold and very very loud, so keep that in mind. It is a small...More

Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It's casual (you order at a counter, and a waiter brings your food to your table when it's ready), but nicely decorated. We ordered a 3 appetizer plate--eggplant, koshary and babaghanoush--all three were yummy and beers. For main dishes, we...More

I ordered the gollash, hawawshi, and Kunafa with cheese and found all three lacking. The gollash flavor was not great and it appeared to have been made hours prior to serving, the hawawshi was at least hot but the bread was chewy and un appetizing....More

I had read a review in the Washington Post and was anxious to try it, having visited Egypt some years ago and enjoyed the food. I ordered the Koshary bowl and found it good but huge. Contrary to some others' comments, I thought the red...More

My wife and I lived in Egypt and when we read about Fava Pot in the Post, a visit was planned once the baladi bread oven was installed. The freshly baked bread was delicious and plenty available. For an appetizer the baba ghanoush was one...More

Cute, small place, not fancy, but clean and nice. Hostess was very welcoming and, later, attentive. Food was top notch. We’ll be back! The koshery bowl as an entree comes with choice of chicken, falafel or kofta (ground lamb and beef). The chicken on it...More
