Classic Jerusalem grill restaurant still going strong. Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food (we had hummus, chicken salad). Friendly service and fair prices. Keep it up!

Very nice grilled meats and tasty vegetables. Top of our list are Jerusalem mixed grill, with vegetables, hummus with ground beef, and grilled meat. The service was very friendly and fast without rushing.

This was our first dinner in Jerusalem and we could not wish for a better meal, a better service and a better value for money especialy on a cold and rainy night after a whole day of travel. Really heartwarming!

Friday afternoons are a special time in Israel, especially in Jerusalem. Last Friday, my wife and I had an enjoyable and unrushed lunch at Sima's. All the food that was served was fresh and homemade. Sima's is highly recommended, especially compared to the other options...for lunch in the Machene Yehuda area.More

after the first time we fell in love with this restaurant. Of the 2 days spent in Jerusalem, we had dinner there twice. We ordered their signature meat mixes. Everything is unusually tasty and fast. Attractive waiters. Highly recommend.

A very casual restaurant that offers simple Israeli tasty cooking. It isn't stylish nor fancy, but it is a nice local experience.

Very good food. The tapas to start with are great. Different salads to taste. Great pitas bread. We ordered hummus, different meat dishes. All were very good. Service was good. Not cheap. But certainly worth the experience.

no idea how they did it but our Spring Chicken Shislik was one of the best I've ever had. Great little sides too. And an excellent Gamla Golan Height Cabernet/Merlot. What not to like??

A friend of mine raved about the restaurant and I tried it. I didn't get the full experience as I wasn't able to eat in and get all the salads that are brought to the table before you even order. The food I ordered to...go was good.More

We had a large group and were treated like royalty. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding and we left stuffed. Several couples split entrees after we devoured the appetizers. If I just drove by the place I wouldn’t have stopped. Since...it got great reviews we gave it a shot and we were delighted.More
