The food and service was great! Hard to find. Tourists sit on the top floor. Got the kosheri and the dessert. Both amazing.

Food is good but the surrounding area is really freaky and doesn't give any positive impact as people around look like bulley

Well, the only meal is (vegetarian) Kushari. You can choose between a small, medium or large portion kushari. The food is served within minutes, so the dinner takes you only 15 minutes. The kushari is cheap (20 Egyp. pound) and delicious, the service is friendly and the restaurant is clean. Choose the second floor to eat as that is the... More

Egyptian fast food of exceptionally high quality. had the best koshari, a traditional Egyptian vegetarian dish, in Cairo. It is made with chickpeas, lentils, tomato sauce, vinegar, fried onions, rice, and noodles. Here, you only have to decide between the small, medium and large size and then season it with hot chilli sauce, a lime, vinegar and garlic salt as... More

I had a small one today which cost me 15 EGP and a bottle of Nestle water for 3 EGP. I asked the waiter wasn't it 10 EGP for the small one which he said no, but charged us 1 EGP less and charged us 50 EGP. I wonder if the waiter tipped himself or the prices really have been... More

This is a very chill place to get good koshary. You can get take out for as little as 10 le. You can sit down and eat for as little as 15 le. I recommend getting the small bowl the first time because it is a lot of food. Then if you need more or a bigger one next time... More

Not much to add. We were directed to the second floor, where a waiter took our order. It came to 38 LE for one koshery and 2 cans of Pepsi. The waiter was kind enough to let me know that his tip should be 15 LE. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit I gave him a 50 and told him... More

Excellent koshary! Probably not the cheapest you can find in Cairo but delicious. It's served as a combo with rice pudding and a soft drink. I personally only got it with the dessert since I don't drink soft drinks. Still cheap for a foreigner (around 50 Egyptian pound for 2).
