It was an awesome experience. The family and I wanted to eat Koshari for the first time so we stumbled on this awesome place. I asked couple people were sitting next to us to give us some suggestions and they were spot on. We loved it.

The Koshari here was very good, plus I loved eating here because it's authentic. You will probably be the only non-local. The only negative thing was that the service was very slow, but we still had a great time and enjoyed our food!
