The service is honestly the only reason I even gave this place a 3. The prices are higher than "$" usually implies. The tomato sauce and the curry were some of the worst I've had in a restaurant.

I love not having to cook food, so living on Nahalat Binyamin, this was the true highlight of my stay. I could get a great pasta dish for under 30 sheckel (or more if I wanted protein) and not feel guilty about it. Not exactly...More

Tasty build-your-own pasta for great value. You select the pasta and sauce/fillings at the counter and are served a few minutes later with the dish at the table. Great location.
