“Warm atmosphere, dependable food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

This is a typical Jerusalem grill, but has just a bit more to offer: more salads, including felafel on the house, wonderful Iraqi style pita, good fried potatoes at no extra cost, well-flavored meat. Generally good service and welcoming to all kinds of groups, kids, families. A bit noisy, but that's OK. Our favorite neighborhood restaurant.

“Great Jerusalem Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

In this great restaurant , that fact that you'll find Jewish Muslim and Christian Jerusalemites rubbing elbows while enjoying the wonderful fresh food, attests to the excellence of this place.It has been one of our family favorites for years.Delicious home made lafas (oven fresh flat pita) a wonderful selection of salads, chips felafel and magadera (lentil rice) greet hungry diners a few minutes after they are seated,.The meat here is grilled to order, the salads chips lafa, etc constantly replenished, and the service is always very friendly and efficient- many of the waitstaff have worked here for years and recognize customers-always a nice touch.Its a great place for a family or group dinner, birthday party, or to take visitors from abroad who want a real Jerusalem meal. Not the cheapest, but really worth it.

“Don't Eat Here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

I have been a regular here for a number of years. But in recent months something has changed. I waited nearly 20 minutes to be served...when politely asking about my meal, it finally came...but suddenly the on duty manager, without asking me, SAT DOWN at my table (while I was trying to finally eat) ...and pointedly asked me not to yell at the waitresses. He was rude, and at one point threatened to throw me out physically. I am an educated, mild-mannered man. But I must say, that this event, along with the strange taste in the meat, brought me to nausea and vomiting. I took a sample of the meat home with me and am now passing it on to a medical examiner. In the Middle East one simply does not take a chance, both with food, poor service and especially "hot heads". Avoid this place at all costs!!!

“Quality over time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

If you like small salads, all home made which keep getting refilled every time you finish one, and you are looking for a relitevly good steak (not amazing, but good), or a skewer or two of the regular, then this is the place for you.

You can buy one or more skewers, and that is sufficient for the salads to flow.

I like the spicy carrot and aubergine, as well as the humous. I usually choose either a lamb steak or a liver and heart skewer.

The service is great, friendly and very family orientated.

You can't go wrong here.
