Tasty!

4 Posted on 05 / 02 / 2014

Must have walked past this place hundreds of times but I won't do so again! Their one dish - KOSHARI - is a mix of rice, pasta, lentils and chickpeas topped with a tomato sauce (choose your chilli strength) and fried onions. It was absolutely delicious and under a fiver for dinner.

Pros: Very tasty, Inexpensive, Quick service
Cons: V.small shop so only a couple of seats

They serve just one dish, and that's enough

This place just serves one dish, and it's enough because it is so delicious.
It has a lot of flavours and spices, it's like a box of wonders. The tomato sauce is very rich, and the herb mix is really good. Not to mention the crispy onions on top mmm....

Very good value as well, if the day is beautiful, just grab one box and go sit in Trafalgar Square to have a nice lunch.

Pros: Excellent flavoursome food, Good value

Awesome food, open late

4 Posted on 02 / 06 / 2014

I ate here recently, and finding this place was a life-saver. It was the only vegetarian restaurant in the area open late on a Thursday night, and the food was not only delicious but also a good price.

It's very filling, the flavors are bold and wonderful, and the location-service-hours-price aspects were great, too.

I would absolutely go here again.

Pros: All vegetarian, Open late, Good prices

Good fast food

4 Posted on 01 / 19 / 2014

We ate here yesterday and enjoyed it! The lady said they just do the one main Koshari dish so it is the same everyday,. but they do have a fridge with salads and soups available!

The main dish is all vegan!
So it's just the snacks/yoghurts and (maybe the salads too?) that are veggie, not sure.

We loved the food and it was a great quick bite on the go. We just bought a regular Koshari for about £4, good value for the portion in central London!

It's pretty awesome they are open until 11pm, so if you don't want the full sit-down dinner you can run by here and just grab it to go, really handy to be honest!

Pros: free water, good quick food, late opening
Cons: limited menu

Good fast food

Just ate here as a lost tourist in London. Had the Combo Koshari dinner, which is a good bit of everything. Absolutely great stuff. Price is very good considering what you get. Also the free WiFi (although it not advertised on the front window).

Pros: Great price (and free water), Fast food, Good food
Cons: Small place

Delicious street food

5 Posted on 06 / 18 / 2013

I've eaten here several times now and can't wait to go again. Koshari, the main dish, is an unlikely mix of rice, green lentils, vermicelli and macaroni, topped with a spicy tomato sauce, chick peas, secret spice mix and crispy fried onions. It just works: beautifully. From what I understand, this is a dish you'll find everywhere in Cairo; and now on St Martin's Lane.

They also serve the other Middle-Eastern staples of hummus, tabbouleh and fattoush, but it's the Koshari that's the attraction for me.

Pros: Delicious, Vegan (Koshari), Healthy
Cons: None
