I talked to a few locals who love this restaurant but I didn't really like it. A bunch of us shared a couple combination platters. The meat was cold, chewy, and unrecognizable. Other items were greasy. I had a bellyache after dinner. I wouldn't recommend :(

The food here is superb. The gyro I had is the best I have ever eaten. Friends ordered hummus with bread everything was home made. Indoor or out side dining. Customer service was grand. The culture deserts were the greatest, only problem was what to choose.

I went here for lunch and it looked pretty shabby. I sat in the outdoor seating with friends. We arranged the tables ourselves before a waitress came outside and gave us menus. The waitress never spoke more than a few words to us. The water came out in paper coke cups. I was concerned that the food would not be... More

This is a solid choice for lunch or pick-up. The inside is of the hole-in-the-wall variety, but the food is so good! Prices vary from modest to extravagant, depending on your choice of food. Haven't tried the sweets yet, but thy look very enticing.

Im not sure if I had just been a local tourist I would have found this. Seemed to be for people who live here. I was with some locals and they decided this would the prefect place to go. We had a chicken Gyro and 2 steak gyro's they were huge and delicious. Price not to bad on food either.... More

We went for some late night eats. The place is quirky. Service was Meh. Chicken schwerma was Meh. Gyro was good. All in all, a great alternative for late night eats, but not that impressive in the light of day.

Nice spot for casual meal. Very good tasting and very reasonably priced food. Very small indoor seating, outdoor seating available and small adjoining parking lot. Good tasting and great value.

I have been to this place thrice in a week now since I came to know Ya Halla on CO Blvd was shut down a while ago. The food is very good and full of flavors. I enjoyed eating the Stuffed Lamb and Sheesh Ta'ouk, and given my current schedule I like that they are open all night. I have... More

This place is so small I don't think I'd risk the crowd they must get at night, but for lunch it's a great spot. Fast service, really inexpensive, parking next to the building and the food was totally yummy. I had a combo plate that came with hummus, fatoush (chopped salad) and 5 very tasty felafel balls. I couldn't have... More

I will say that Jerusalem isn't the absolute best Middle Eastern food. But it is darn good and very reasonably priced! There super dish combo has a lot of meat, rice, cucumber, tabouleh, baba ganouj, and hummus for a good price! Usually they get your food out pretty quick, too. Give it a try!
