We booked a table for 16 for a surprise dinner for a friend. The food was fresh, flavoursome and delicious. Everyone walked away full and content with healthy food. The staff are so friendly and accommodating too. Really enjoyed our night there. We also have lunch and coffees there and are never disappointed.

For Israelis - this place will make you feel like home. For everyone else - this place will make you love Israel and its food. I had here one of the best falafels I've tried in Australia and NZ (if not the very best). The rest of the menu also looked very tempting. If the food doesn't make you love... More

Good selection of authentic food at reasonable prices. Don't look for Quality st mall as it isn't on many maps, but down only alley off that part of Cameron st.
