We had passed this place a couple times and thought let's give it a go. We chose the mixed grill for two quite different from a UK one but it was massive and very tasty. It seems to be the popular option as most around us had also picked it plus it is served quickly. An easy recommendation to make.

Went for a dinner with my friends and what a surprise we got when our ordered food arrived - the portions were huge! Beside looking very appetising the food was also very tasty. Will definitely go back.

Shalom is a family business. We have a fusion kitchen of Dutch and Israeli food. We offer a different kind of food than most of the establishement in our surroundings. Tasty and affordable food in a cosy atmosphere with happy staff to serve you with a smile...
