Not for the faint-hearted. Rudimentary with aluminium spoons but they are polite enough to ask whether you want a knife & fork as well. As to the grub, sic, had Meloukhia whch was quite good and a beef tajin. These dishes look better in the...photos. Sad to say, for this cheap price one can easily do better in neighbouring restaurants but if you really want to experience a dingy Egyptian cafeteria this the right place. Did not try the Camel's foot soupe so can't judge it.More

Stumbled onto this vegetarian kitchen style cafe after visiting Monmartre. Very friendly folk and the sole dish wonderful. Comprising a range of pulses, chickpeas and small pasta topped with fried crispy onions with hot piquant and cumin garlic sauce accompaniments; and all for 4 euro...(a large medium!). The large dish is 5 euro. Water is provided and dishes come very quickly. Have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this Egyptian lunch time cafe. PMore

Eating at Koucheri du Bon Coeur took us right back to Luxor! Their koshary is absolutely decadent, and the fried onions on top were pure perfection. This dish was definitely on bar with the koshary we had all over Egypt. 5 euros per koshary dish...is very reasonable, as well. We were talked into ordering liver on the side to fill us up, but the koshary was more than enough to fill us up, and we had to get a takeaway box for it alone. Next time, we're just going to go with the koshary. One suggestion: additional picante sauce should be served alongside the koshary. We found ourselves wanting more!More

I was out late the other evening and feeling a bit hungry ; so, I decided to go to this Koushary place that I had heard about. Koushary (or however it may be transliterated) is a Egyptian working man's dish made of rice, pasta, lentils,...chick peas, fried onions, and a seasoned tomato sauce. I have very good memories of eating Koushary when I was a student in Cairo for 2 years. And while I have made reasonable facsimiles of this working man's dish here in Paris, I decided to seek out this restaurant in the northern 18th arrondissement. It's far away. That said, it is right off of the Métro/Subway Line #4 at the SIMPLON station (1 stop (?) from the northern terminus of Line #4 at Porte de Clignancourt). You would think that a dish like this would be simple enough to prepare. Well . . . while there may, indeed, be different variations of Koushary with which I am not familiar, it's also true that I ate a LOT of koushary when I was living in Cairo. This one was pretty poor, actually. I think that the porportions of the ingredients were out of balance, weighing heavily on rice (which I don't think was that great), tiny elbow macaroni, and a tomato sauce that was uninspiring. To top all of that off, it was very nearly cold. The ingredients are all cold. Maybe the idea is to heat them up a bit with the tomato sauce ? I don't know. But, at the bottom of my "large" portion of koushary (which would have made any real Egyptian person smile because of its petit size), there was water -- probably from the macaroni or the rice. I don't know, but it was unpleasant. Maybe it would have been different if I had been there for lunch ? I will never know because I will not be going back to this place. Sorry. I had really hoped to write a good review for this place because I love the country and I have very good Egyptian friends, but I think that they would have agreed with me on this review. I don't usually complain about paying 5 euros for a meal, but, quite frankly, for that price, they could have at least served it hot (I didn't see a microwave behind the counter, but perhaps they could use one !)More

This restaurant has a really good Egyptian food. The Kuchery is delicious. The decoration is so simple and normal. But the food is good
