TripAdvisor (9 Reviews)

Koshari has earned a very respectable 4/5 on TripAdvisor, while a couple of reviewers were slightly critical that it is not close enough to the traditional Egyptian dish, most were very happy with their meal and complimented the fact that it was healthy and satisfying.

Reviewed in Time Out and The Guardian this revolutionary idea is the first of its kind in London.

Customer Reviews

It's a very small café, with only ten or so chairs and luckily it was quiet when we arrived at 5pm on a Saturday. The guys were very good at explaining the food, as it was our first time, and not fazed by us being vegan. The food came served in a paper 'boat' and was really filling and flavourful.

Great veggie meals, centrally located near some of the most popular shows in theatreland, and a hop-skip-jump from The National gallery opposite Trafalgar Square. Capable staff, but a bit tight for space with drop-in customers vying for access with those sitting down.

Great alternative to a sandwich lunch.
