“best Koshari in town”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Since opening, maybe 29 years ago or more, Abu Tarek had always gained a top Value
Abu tarek started his career as the owner of a small carriage in the same place and fought hard till he became the owner of the best.
I congratulate him
An Advice for foreigners: get a take away meal, as spoons are not extremely nice.

“Just fine”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

I went abu tarek today with my husband, we had two large koshary for $2.5 us dollars. Extremely cheap and food was just fine for me because they had no meat,but My husband loved it. The place was huge they have 3rd floor building, I was seating on 2nd floor. I enjoyed street view from my table. Overall was just fine.
