We wree looking for Indian food and this came the closest based on reviews and menu. However, the Indian lentil soup was the closest to Indian tasting item they had. The vegetables were very bland and over cooked. The staff was very helpful and courteous.

OMG. Do not eat there solo as you will feel like you are eating at a soup kitchen. The food is laid out in a buffet style. You go round filling your plate with food and in the end you pay for the weight of the food you took. Food is okay but overpriced for what it is.

This is a buffet style place where you pay for a plate and fill it up. This canteen style may not contribute ambience but is a great way to fill up on healthy and delicious food. Their puddings and pastries are very good with a nice vegan selection. Worth trying and fairly cheap.

A friend recommended this restaurant in the German Colony (they also have one on Jaffa Street). It gave us a great excuse to head over to that fun neighborhood and grab an amazing meal. It's not hard to find a vegetarian restaurant in this city, of course, but I might scream if I have one more falafel sandwich. So coming... More

Like other reviewers, I stumbled upon this place while walking along Jaffa Street. I am vegetarian, like to eat vegan, and prefer casual dining while solo, so this place was perfect. I ate vegan -- the lentil soup and vegetable pie for dinner, and a piece of vegan cheesecake to try later. There are outside tables for enjoying the weather... More

We were very excited to stumble upon this restaurant on Jaffa. As vegetarians we don't always have a lot of choice and/or have to travel farther afield to find the local vege joint. This place is centrally located on Jaffa not far from the old city and has so much to choice from. You can look at all of the... More

I go to the Emek Refaim branch with my family very often. We're vegan and this is one of the only restaurants in town where you have a large variety of vegan dishes - not only salads and warm dishes, but also nice pies, and great desserts. The price is a little high for a self-service restaurant with basic furniture,... More

This superb restaurant is also at 19 Emek Refaim in the German Colony of Jerusalem. The staff are helpful, warm and friendly, the system is great - I chose the salad and hot bar option (56 shekel or about $19) and was able to pile up 2 plates with as much as I wanted from their lovely selection of about...
