The service and atmosphere are great. Very lively. It's always packed, but well worth the wait. You can give your name and then stroll around the area while you wait and they will text you when your table is ready. The hummus is excellent.

Delicious Israeli food. the Sabich Platter was delicious. The fresh veggies were great and the hummus outstanding. the wine list is not very long and there are not many options but still enough to enjoy your meal with a glass of wine.
