“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Very nice small restaurant-mediterranean cuisine. Had lunch and breakfast there. Both meals very good. The service was friendly and excellent and the meal quality very good. The location is great and would highly recommend for those looking for a good local restaurant in the SOHO area. Good value

“Crazy culinary mix - but awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Went here for dinner, saw the place and decided to pop in. Crazy mix of Israeli, Moroccan and "Bulgarian?!" cuisine. The food was very tasty and the atmospehere felt very "local". I got the impression that this is where the New Yorkers themselves eat, away from the touristy Meatpacking District.
The service was friendly and attentive. Try the Israeli guacamole - worth every penny!
Would definitely come again.

“Awesome Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

First time in New York and I needed to find a restaurant for my breakfast somewhere near from my hotel. I chose this restaurant based on the review on TripAdvisor and it was great. I really liked the restaurant's relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed the food.

“Quaint Jewish deli/sit down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Turned out to have amazing tasty falafel, bangs push, couscous the Lebanese works!!! Lots of Jewish Hebrew writings all over the place and influence of Israeli cuisine on menu. If you're near Houston at, a good place for a tasty quick middle eastern meal

“12 chairs, an inviting place to sit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Warm, welcoming and charmingly rustic. Humble, friendly staff create a perfect breakfast stop. To top it off, the best Israeli breakfast I've had to date.
