The menu might not be a long one but depending on your need, specially if you have a special diet, you will find something to order. We ordered a main dish for two with plums and lamb, first I should mention that the food arrived...very fast and that was a big plus because we were super hungry. The taste was really nice, it was obvious that the dish was cooked slowly and with care. Besides, it was super healthy. The Ayran was too dense as a drink, it could be a bit more diluted. The staff were behaving friendly, perhaps even more than expected! That made us feel like at home. Just be aware that the prices are above the average. But hopefully you wouldn’t regret that.More

Great setting, great food and great hospitality. Can’t recommend enough, made to feel very welcome by the staff and the setting matches that. And the food of course was so nice. 100% would go back

Had lunch here while on a city break to Krakow. The restaurant has a great atmosphere - bright and modern with nice plants and music playing. It was a busy Saturday and there was a good buzz about the place. The staff are super friendly...and helpful, taking time to offer suggestions and advice about the food. We had some really delicious hummus with lamb, a portion of baba ganoush and the chicken kebab, which came with salad and pitta. The chicken was so tender and tasty, we really loved it. The hummus was silky and garlicky and the baba ganoush sweet and smoky. Everything was fresh, colourful and well presented. This was plenty of food between two of us and fantastic value. We also had a beer each and I tried the cardamom coffee which the server recommended and was LOVELY. We would definitely come back when we return to Krakow. Also we went into the Jewish bookshop which is in the same building as the restaurant and the man who worked there was very informative about the history of there area. Fabulous!More

Good food, portions a bit too big, but I think it's typically for Poland. Service was ok, took a bit too long for drinks. Food was fast served on the other hand.

Had been here before and loved it so returned. We were not disappointed. We had the sharing platter and mezze plates and they were all delicious. Very authentic. Definitely return.

Went there on the recommendation of a friend. Lovely outside courtyard and inside section. The best tagine we’ve ever had. Well worth the experience.

Great Israel food with very cool and vibe interior. You can order from plenty of variants of hummus and typical Israel food. When you are there, you have to order one of desserts! Food here was really experience and served very nicely.
