There isn't much to choose from, as their menu is limited, but the quality of food is great. Nice place to try some authentic Egyptian fare. The service is amazingly fast. The place gets quite crowded and one may to wait for a while, particularly if you're in a big group.

The price was two to three times more expensive than ordinary Koshari resto. The taste was hmm almost same. The service was worse than others. Finally, it was disappointed...

It was our first time to Cairo and wanted to try the famous Kushari plate. Abu Tarek was on the top list of recommendations and we surely visited the place. I had a super delicious kushari and trying to learn the recipe to cook back home! Hope to return there again..

This was around the corner from my hostel and was a great dinner option. You only need to say "small, medium or large" to place your order. Great option for budget dining around the Egyptian Museum.

It is highly recommendable to experience and be part of the typical local... More
