Nasr City branch. It was not rush hour. I waited for 10 minutes but nobody came to take my order. I asked one of them. Again, they ignored me. Moreover, there were 2 nails in the chair which ruined my trouser.

Not the best Koshary place, but not really bad. The service is good, the prices are a little more than other Koshary restaurants. But still, I am going there once in a while

A restaurant for locals and travellers alike the food was very tasty and the service quick and efficient. Very cheap indeed and the food is served in nice plates. Downstairs seating is only for men but the upstairs is much better.

This is the 1st branch opened for this chain. I enjoy eating there and never said enough after one plate. You can either add spy sauce or the lemon/garlic sauce.
