Look in the shuk, the bazaar/marketplace in the fabulous Machne Yehuda district for outstanding and outlandish restaurants and food. Sima is a classic and we ate there on several recommendations. The place is neat and sparcely decorated but nice enough for lunch or dinner out....More

I know this restaurant for more than 30 years. Although we are not Jerusalemites, we return again and again to this restaurant. Sima's restaurant is widely known mainly due grilled dishes and soups that are delicious, prepared to the special taste and tradition in Jerusalem.
