It has all been said before but we greatly enjoyed our first taste of Koshary here. The Concierge at the Semiramis Intercon recommended the place and it is in an area full of car workshops - but don't let that deter you! Very busy with lots of locals enjoying this tasty 'national dish'. Get the waiter to show you how... More

The food Was delicious. The only thing is that the street is very crowded and no place for parking. But meanwhile it is a good restaurant.

no one can doubt how delicious is the Koshary there. But since they are the most famous Koshary restaurant in Egypt, they have the rudest ever waiters in the universe. I stopped going there because of the sh**ty way they treat the customers

A friend had told me how to find this place and it was well worth going. So much so I have eaten there on 2 out of my 3 days in Cairo. The koshary was excellent, service incredibly fast, small portion was pretty large and only 10EL (50p)

Probably the best Koshary I had. The taxi driver recommended it, and it was great. The place is a hit for the locals. Clean and fast service.

This place is a unique Cairo experience, 4 floors of busy restaurant that only serves one dish the famous koshary. The koshary is great. A great place to enjoy Cairo's best koshary and eat with the locals. Service is quick and the food is even better.

This is a 3 story Koshary that is pretty famous with the locals. All of our uber drives and any on we ask about it knew of this location. We had meals her 2 times during our stay. As the Koshary get busier they keep opening floors to accommodate. Best Koshary we had on the trip. Recommended. About. 1/2 mile... More

We went there based on the reviews, and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing! My egyptian friends were just as in awe as myself! The place is very large. We ended up sharing a table on the 3rd floor, and there were more stairs, so this place has at least 4... and ALL were full from what we... More
