The food here is absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the chicken schawarma sandwich, the healthy mess salad and the salmon avocado tartine! Amazing! The only issue is it's very small inside. Don't let that deter you!

I had the hummus for lunch and I found it pretty tasteless. I was rather disappointed. My companions had chicken schwarma and shrimp burger which they said were OK.

The best humus and grilled octopus we've ever had. Charming ambience, great food, decent service. Mishmish is a great value for the price. It's BYOB and the food is very reasonably priced.

Just a simple neighborhood restaurant with excellent, fresh, interesting food inspired by Israel and the Mediterranean more broadly. We are lucky to have this wonderful resource.

Some of it's gluten-free by nature, e.g., the hummus. I don't know about reservations. We just walked in.
