A must try place. Kushari is delicious and this was the best we had I'm Egypt. Packed with locals, it's a cultural experience. Kushari is all that is served (its a rice, macaroni, lentil combo that comes topped with a flavourful tomato sauce which you can add garlic vinegar and chilli sauce to) and its dirt cheap.

The restaurant is narrow, but three stories high. It is full of huge fish tanks and fairly energetic Egyptian music is playing in the background. There is only one dish...koshary (many spellings) and it is DELICIOUS. We paid $2 each for quite a large plate. Our waiter was so helpful--explained how to prepare the chick peas (with lemon juice) and tomato sauce (with hot sauce and vinegar), then sprinkle on the onions. We have teenage children who loved the food too...we will definitely go back for supper each night we are here!

The best thing is that I don't have stomach problems..
Too expensive for all sizes!! It has Air condition which is very rare for shops selling koshry ;)

It is simply the best traditional koshary, it is even better than home made one even from professional mothers. What is really missed is a green salad for healthy food.
