i of course went here because i saw it on Anthany Bordains travel show, as i recall foreigners go upstairs, the koshery is great, everything very cleanly and proper, the rice milk dessert is great, its in a nice rustic neighborhood, very authentic Cairo. the foreigner options may be marginally more expensive but come on guys Egypt needs our money...

The Food: Great and fresh taste for all the gradient, nice and hot red sauce. The Service: the people are very helpful, well dressed, but they will take the price in advance so don't hesitate 😃 The interior and the building: 3 stories full of tables but it is well organized, clean, and warm. The location: near from the famous... More

I went their with my family. it didn't take long to have our orders. the place was not that clean as i expected. the Koshary was very good in real. i liked the hummus of the top much as well as my little ones. soooo far it worth a trial.

Taste is worthy to try, and it is a whole meal composed of different elements of food in the same plate

Located in 16 maroof street off the famous champlion street . In the corner of the street . Try to go there in early morning to avoid the crowd. It is really delicious & tasty . I have tried many koshary shops but Abu tarek is unique.

If you are only going to have koshary once while in Egypt, have it here. It's pretty great, to say the least. It's not exactly a place to linger over your food though, so maybe not somewhere to go to if you are absolutely shattered from an intensive day of sightseeing.

We went there on the recommendation of our guide at the end of a long day sightseeing in and around Cairo. We wanted to try something local and not the regular buffet meals served at the internationalized hotels. This is a specialty place and they make only one dish here. It was like a mix of European and Middle-Eastern flavors... More
