First: Oh the hummus! I have traveled and whole bunch and they have the best hummus ever! The other dishes we had were good, but if you go there, please get the hummus. It was a bit loud, but it was a Friday night. Will definitely return.

This is hands down the best hummus I've had in my life. And that's including Israel! You can't pass up the mushroom hummus, it's pure ambrosia.

Like a cafe on the streets of Tel Aviv! Great Middle Eastern food, both kosher and not kosher meat with plenty of vegetarian options. We went with four friends who all know Israeli food first hand and we all agreed this was the real deal. Great laffa that keeps coming to the table, but don't fill up cause the the... More

Met a friend for dinner who somehow managed to get the three of us a table on a Sunday evening around 6 p.m. The place was so crowded that those without a table were crammed into the small waiting area as outside it was a warm, humid evening. A huge round pita is brought to the table rather than a... More

I have eaten here several dozen times and the food has consistently been very good, so is the service. I go early (5:30 or 6 PM) because it gets packed later, VERY popular with Israeli immigrants. the menu includes many "Mediterranean" dishes besides Israeli cuisine including Moroccan and Lebanese. it is always very clean and service is good. it can...

We visited the place for the first time with 2 Families on a Friday night. Selection of very tasting salads were immediately put on a table with constant refill every time one is finished. Service is typical Israeli - friendly and welcoming with a funny side. Main courses also sizeable and tasty. Highly recommended.
