Good food good atmosphere good value. Koshery is a simple but filling local dish and inexpensive. The 4 floors are often very busy. It is located in downtown and in an interesting area.

Went there for a quick dinner and where positively surprised. They only serve one dish: koshary. It’s simple, but delicious, fast and very cheap. For 2 plates, 2 water and one salad we only paid 48. Also very nice service, would definitely recommend!

Pasta, rice, lentils tomato sauce and garlic water. Match made in heaven. Add a few fried onions and chickpeas. This one plate vegetarian restaurant is cheap, clean quick and delicious and you should try it. You will be the only foreigner.
