“We were hungry (should have stayed that way)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

The cease fire was holding and it was "Tu B'av" (Israel's Valentine Day) so the depressing Ayalon Mall & parking lots were packed, but we wanted to catch an Israeli movie and the adjacent food court looked more like a kindergarten convention. So we looked for an alternative and settled for SH. Luckily we found & were granted a table for 6 even though we were only 2 so we had plenty of room for the many small salad dishes in the "all included" NIS68 deal that was all the refillable salads you can eat and one skewer. A filling deal if you are very hungry even though it was quantity over quality that reminded me of supermarket salads. The service was actually very good and friendly. Also babies screeching in your ears added to the folksy atmosphere that we hadn't experienced in quite some time. Intimate or romantic it wasn't. The place was full and they really don't need our future business. The award-winning Israeli movie was pretty good and compensated for the forgettable meal.

“too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

That restaurant serves similar food that you can get in many other middle-eastern food restaurant, but the price is much higher. Probably because they are located in a mall and have to pay a lot for renting the place.
Service is not great either.
Go there only if you are stuck in the mall and have no chance to look for better places in the area.
