Koshari is one of those dishes that must be prepared at home. However Koshari El-Tahrir changed my perspective. Their koshari is very well cooked and very generously dressed. Additional packed dressings (hot sauce, garlic sauce, and fried onions) is a hallmark for Koshari El-Tahrir. Their...More

I went to Downtown branch. The service is very quick and efficient and their koshary has a special taste that you can't find in other koshary places. Koshary is a very authentic Egyptian dish and you've at least try it once while you're in Cairo.

Koshari is an Egyptian traditional healthy food that you must try. Consists of pasta, lentils, rice chickpeas and sauces. This place makes the best koshari since I was a child

I visited the Nasr City branch. The service was a bit slow, but nothing to complain about, the atmosphere - like all Koshary restaurants - bland but well lit, and the food was below average. For Koshary prices, this is pretty decent, but the food...More
