Interesting very tasty unique Iraqi dishes served quickly and efficiently. Very fresh - towards end of day the munu becomes smaller (dishes are finished). The area around is a very authentic Iraqi market, with people playing Shesh Besh (Backgammon).

Located on the outskirts of the Machane Yehuda Market, this was one of my favorite restaurants in all of Israel. We ate outside, but under umbrellas with water misting fans. I ate so much hummas in Israel, but this was the best. All of the...More

Call the restaurant, I doubt they are reading these posts. And yes, they will be able to accomodate you but may request that you commit to the tasting menu

I did not have a reservation. Whether or not the establishment takes and honors a reservation I am unaware.

Sabbath or not, they are not open in the evenings. Anyway, the food is finished very quickly (after 3 or 4 pm, you are left with "left over"). So I don't think there is a need to serve in the evenings.
