Visited for dinner on a Monday by myself on recommendation from my Israeli meeting host. The restaurant is on the main round about on entry to Jaffa from downtown Tel Aviv. I turned up around 6.20pm and there were many tables. The restaurant didn't get too busy through the evening. Food was fantastic. They didn't have the beetroot and goats... More

This is the best oriental north Arabic food you'll ever taste. Go for their special dishes. Fair prices, not cheap stuffed lamb neck or veal shoulder.

But on the inside, really, is not. Pretty regular stuff, not always fresh. The prices though, are very fancy.

It has the potential of being an excellent restaurant but bad attitude and service combined with salads lacking in imagination ruined it. The salads were boring. The meat which was recommended to have "medium" came out bloody and so did the Kebab (chopped meat). When we asked them to put it back on the grill, we got attitude. We were... More

Offers more than just Turkey Shwarma, also Calf with Lamb. Very good, clean and fast. This is more of Street-Food than a Restaurant.

An authentic chef restaurant based on the traditional Palestinian cuisine, with a modern, sophisticated twist. The place is pleasant, in a very central roundabout in the historic city. They have napkins with anecdotes of the Palestinian heritage of the city, too often written out by Israeli chroniclers. The food is exellent and well presented. No alcohol, according to islamic law.
