I have visited this restaurant several times and the koshary and tagan(sp?) are both very good. you get a huge bowl for 5 EGP (less than $1). the bread/chips are very nice also.

I'm not an expert on Koshari, but I thought it was pretty good compared to other Koshari. It seemed like it was heavier on the noodles than the rice, which I enjoyed. The waiter was friendly, and it was very inexpensive.

The restaurant is narrow, but three stories high. It is full of huge fish tanks and fairly energetic Egyptian music is playing in the background. There is only one dish...koshary (many spellings) and it is DELICIOUS. We paid $2 each for quite a large plate....More
