    I absolutely love this restaurant. It's one of Jerusalem's gems of a restaurant, with exquisite Turkish-infused food that makes you want to set up camp and inhale their food.

    I absolutely love this restaurant. It's one of Jerusalem's gems of a restaurant, with exquisite Turkish-infused food that makes you want to set up camp and inhale their food. Their eggplant with minced beef is fantastic, as are their hummus and their meatballs. Come here prepared to share food, as you'll want to try everything. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the vibe was both welcoming, laidback, and uplifting.

    Back in the Holy Land, and eternal Jerusalem ~ where time has no meaning.

    From the hip, modern city-life of Tel Aviv, to the ancient, enduring and timeless city of Jerusalem, where every crack in the living stone walls and streets exudes a wealth of history. And once again, into a teeming mix of cultures that to the outside world appear to co-exist only tenuously, but actually are deeply intertwined and inseparable… After wandering around the packed, narrow and winding ancient streets of the Holy City, we found ourselves headed to this famous old-world restaurant. I don’t know how my friends found it, but I was totally lost. I guess you have to have a native nose..? Once again: a blend of ancient cuisines from across this part of the world: Mideastern, Arab, Persian, Israeli ~ all blending together in a cauldron to make people delight in one of the greatest pleasures of this world: good food. The food here is cooking in a series of pots placed at the edge of the kitchen, which overlooks the dining room. People see, smell, order, and the waiters yell the requests to the crews in the kitchen, who dip into the pots and hand out filled bowls and plates of hot, steaming foods to the waiters to serve.. it’s all very casual and very clean. And all washed down by nice, chilled local beer. Most amazing, delicately cooked and fully flavored food, and well worth the experience. It’s probably been done this way here for decades, and not changed one bit: food’s always cooking, and people are always eating. No sweat !! Not expensive at all...

    It took me a while to find this restaurant, but it is so good that we found it. I came with my mother who born in Jerusalem as well as her grandmother and so on. The food was just as she remembered and tasted great. You made my mother happy. Thank you very much
