We had one big portion of koshary and one small portion. We had no clue what it is. I suppose its common Egyptian food. But it tastes good with the sauce and some spicy sauce. Extremely cheap price. If your hotel is near the pyramids, it's recommended to go eat there.

A neat little shop just of the main road. Owner is delightful and very kind. Koshary is a local carb based mix of lentils, pasta,macaroni, fried onions, garlic, and tomato sauce. Addictive and cheap.

Koshary is sort of the national dish of Egypt! This tasty dish is something you must try while here! This is one of the nicer, cleaner places. Generally speaking, you're going to need a strong stomach no matter where you eat in Egypt, so if you are planning a trip make sure to take your probiotics for a few months... More

Well prepared Koshery (local food) for dining or carry out. It is close to Pyramid attractions and worth a visit. Try the creamy dessert with the Koshery served with hot sauce. Clean and low price.

The best thing about the place is the view from the second floor. The did was good Egyptian fair, the pace was clean, and everything was reasonably priced. I'd eat here again. The rice pudding was amazing!

This place service good koshary and a very good price. It was my first koshary in Egypt so it is placed high in my reviews. The establishment speaks limited English and the largest serving of the dish should not be more than LE7. Beware... if you don't speak Arabic and you obviously look like an outside, be prepared to be... More

We enjoyed some Koshery recommended by our awesome tour guide Leila from Egypt Tailor Made. The food was really good but I would warn discerning guest that it's not super clean or a five star diner. It's a local spot. But the food is all cooked and looked to be handled with care. I put lime on my food as... More

Kosher is tasty, simple and cheap at 10LE including drink. The menu is simple and consists only of koshary in one variety. Beware of the hot sauce which they offer on the side, should be doled out by the drop !

Thank Rolian
