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.

Egyptian Street Food to eat-in or takeaway served by friendly, helpful staff - what's not to like? All you have to do is simply enjoy - and I think that there is a pretty good chance that you will!

Regardless of whether groupon has an offer I will definitely go back. The food is fresh, tasty and healthy. When I'm in the area my boyfriend and I will be going back; the staff are lovely too. The only drawback is its a small restaurant with very little seating.
