Our tour group went here for dinner. The dinner started with about 12 different plates of items, a dance show and then the meat, lamb-chicken-beef with french fries. Lots of food and a wonderful time.

Stopped while in Bethlehem. Lookd like a huge tent. Generous portions. Beautiful, expansive views. Food was great. Little stingy on the napkins, but not on the food or service.

The restaurant is extensive and well furnished. The food is good -- it always is in this region. But what delighted me was the dancing of eight youngsters in traditional dress.

Large room with stage area for entertainment: Palestinian music and dancing. Excellent, plentiful Palestinian food, much variety, fresh, many non-meat choices (I am vegan). I visited this restaurant with a tour group. I would definitely go there again.
