Avoid this pricy and not tasty restaurant. We got a burnt kebab with mediocre super market salads. Finally we had a 100 NIS bill accompanied by a schemer smile. Beware!

The only reason to eat in this restaurant is the meat, especially the lamb kebab, which is simply excellent. Among the additions, the tahini is very tasty. Everything else is not worth it. The restaurant itself is small and very simple and very authentic.
