Tried this place for lunch and were disappointed! The service was very poor and you had to keep trying to get anyone to serve you....like they were not interested. The meals we had were both poorly executed with no seasoning at all which is amazing...More

We just finished a tour of the Mount of Olives and our tour guide recommended Tala - especially because a lot of restaurants were closed for Ramadan. Amazing food and atmosphere and we will certainly try and stop by again before leaving Jerusalem!

I was once for a lunch snack and once for a dinner snack in this nice and cozy restaurant. It is the better choice instead of the fast food options in the Jaffa Gate area. Try the Shakshouka with meat. Perfect.

I consulted my pictures from the place, but I couldn't find any opening hours... So I checked their web site instead... ;-) They are open 10:00 am to 10:00 pm all days of the week. The web page starts with talahummus.
