Still delicious after all these years

Like a recent reviewer, I too used to eat in this establishment when it was still a "hole-in-the-wall" with 5 tables. The food was great then, and I do miss that spot, but I disagree with that reviewer, as I find that, after all these years and several expansions, and even the newest expansion (new... read more

I like the Kube soup. I liked the stuffed vegetables, all was fresh tasty and well prepared. I will eat here again for sure.

i used to eat in this establishment at least once a month, when it was still a "hole-in-the-wall" with 5 tables. the food was great and prices were normaly related to what you came for: simple tasty Jewish Iraqi home style cooking. i guess the internet has ruined another good eating place... the original owner is long gone... location changed...

Like father, like son. Though the place is now ran by Shabi, the son of Azura, the food is the same, authentic and great!!! The atmosphere is great and the place really invites you (if you can find a free table) to sit and enjoy the long cooked koobeh and soups (this is what we had this time). We shall... More

Had the stuffed eggplant, rice with okra, and soup. All good, especially the okra. If you are looking for old fashioned authentic cooking, this is the place. It is not chic or fancy, but if you want the kind of food great-grandfather ate, this is it.

Our guide recommended this place and Webern we actually stumbled upon it we decided to have lunch here. The service is well intentioned though a bit slow on a crazy Friday. Menu was ok, but not if you are looking for a light meal. They did not have falafel or draft beer. We had the hummus with chickpeas and some... More

I love this place. It's the best of a type of restaurant known as a workers restaurant. All cooked hot food that sits ready for you to sit and grab a delicious hot meal that's delivered in a heartbeat. Everything I have tried is delicious. Try Kubbe Soup if you have never done so. Be warned, it can be heavy... More

Great food at this souk restaurant. Here's a tip...don't go on Friday. The place is a zoo! We had several items and they were all good and a very fair price.

Not easy to find - heading in to the market, turn down a side alley then down steps (if you're lost, ask for the public toliets, its right next door!). Fabulous mix of Jewish foods, hearty portions, good value, great flavours
