Three of us had dinner at Koshary. We all chose different entrees. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service could do better with some training.

About Koshary

Koshary: The Food

Widely considered the national dish of Egypt, koshary is served in nearly every Egyptian restaurant and home. In the streets, people literally line up in front of vendor carts for it. But what makes koshary so special? The word actually stems from "khichri," a Hindu phrase that refers to lentils and beans.

Indeed, koshary did not originate in Egypt: it actually arrived there by way of India when the British dropped anchor in the late 1800s and brought the dish with them. Eventually, Italians got wind of the dish and began adding special touches of their own—especially pasta. Today, koshary is a multi-cultural dish featuring lentils, macaroni noodles, and rice topped with a spicy tomato sauce.

Koshary: The Restaurant

It had always been Samah Helmi's dream to own a restaurant and share the flavors from her homeland with others. Alongside her husband, Samah realized that dream in 2014 when she opened Koshary in Greensboro. There, she plates up the signature dish alongside kabobs, shawarma, and macaroni bel bechamel—a specialty layered with ground beef and a five-cheese bechamel sauce. But Koshary's Egyptian roots spread beyond just the food: the Helmis decorated their restaurant with art from their home, so it looks like Egypt, too.
