“excelent restaurant great traditional food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I saw the restaurant by the the train in Jaffa street .I just wondered what is yamani restaurant and I felt that we must eat there that's what we had done.
It was the best traditional meal that we ate ever.
I just want to thank the honor mrs ziva for her hospitality and the best shawaya with okra and the Yemenite tea with hawayige
Thank you for a great experience

“A nice change”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

The service from this family restaurant has got to be one of the best I've been in, in Jerusalem. The food was above average, delicious soups but the other dishes are mediocre. I would suggest going for what the restaurant is best at (soups) if you plan on eating here. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

“Great restaurant, great meal”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

I went to the restaurant at closing time last week and enjoyed the Ox Tail with potatoes and beans.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent.
The owners recommended my dish and spent time explaining the food and their background.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

“It really hit the craving for interesting cooking and at the same time, home made and comforting.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Although we were enjoying felafel, schwarma, and some good gourmet restaurants, we wanted something unusual. Yemen food here hit the spot. The food was very tasty and the service perfect. The owner was extremely friendly and warm.
Although we are not Yemen, we felt like we were home with family.

“Perfect between Old City and Shopping”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This small place on Yaffo St. is perfect for a delicious snack between the Old City and the Shopping Street in Jerusalem. Some original Yemenite kitchen with a great service, very polite, clean and always with a smile - no matter if the senior boss or her son are working there.
Always try to visit this place when I am around.
