We enjoyed two meals at this restaurant between and after our tours with Yariv. The food was great and came out quickly. The service isn't overly friendly and the bathroom leaves something to be desired, but it put delicious food in our bellies. Try the shakshuka!

This place is in the alley, we ordered lemonade mint, hummus and mix grilled. Lemonade mint is really refreshing. Hummus and pita is delicious. We ordered chicken and beef kebab which came with French fried. Like everything here!

Enjoyed some delicious hummus, kebabs and felafel at this casual spot. Food was fresh and the OJ freshly squeezed. If you're looking for find dining this is not the place for you. This is a small restaurant with quick service. Dinner for three was 134 IL ($50 cdn)

Yahudi hummus is different from the Lebanese hummus. A bit on the bland side with no hot sauce available. But otherwise, the hummus and falafel platter is very good and fresh. The baklava is not so good. Prices are expensive in this so called Holy Land. It is tucked inside a quiet street right near Jaffa Gate and you will... More

Located right inside the Jaffa gate, this small eatery was exactly what we were looking for. Freshly made falafel, hummus, and schwarma, with a delicious lemonade with mint and lunch was served! The falafel salad was excellent, and the hummus was SO worth every bite. Recommend this place for a quick bite if you're in the area.

We had the best hummous we had ever had with tasty chicken in the middle. Great falafel and arabic salad. It is a quick meal or takeout place.
