Nice options for lunch, like fresh soups, baked goods and stuffed grape leaves, always with generous garnish, with all local ingredients. Good for takeaway or quiet dining upstairs. Good staples, through maybe a bit pricier than elsewhere in town. Nasser the energetic owner is alone...worth the visit. If you are not sure what you want, he will put something together for you - just tell him when you’ve had “khallas!”More
The place is very cute and tasty offering nice quick Palestinian "fast food" . The place is a little too dark in the morning for my taste however this of course does not affect the overall good quality of the food and the nice overall...experience of eating in the place. It is a nice place especially for a light meal of a breakfast.More
We came here on the recommendation of a friend who said Zeit ou Zaater was worth a visit. Let me tell you it should be on the bucket list of things to do here in Ramallah.
Your first point of call and the friendliest man...in the world is Nasser; the owner of the store.
He kindly drew us a map of the area, told us where to go and what to see before letting us try local delicacies before we purchased a meal.
Food was fresh, delicious and excellent value.
It was so good - we came back a second time, and was once again welcomed by his warm hospitality! He had a genuine interest in what we were doing and as he was on his way out dropped us to the museum. I stupidly left my phone and again he offered to come to us to drop it off. His kindness shows no limit and we were so happy to have met him.
What I have learnt about Palestine is the people are the friendliest you’ll ever meet - meeting this man and visiting his restaurant will be an unforgettable experience of this amazing city.
Try the white cheese with Zattar bread and the cracked wheat soup! Simply delicious!More
From the salads to the stuffed grape leaves to the traditional chicken dishes, the food here was delicious. Not to mention the Zeit ou Zaater itself! The staff bent over backwards to answer all of our questions and to make sure that we got the...food that we wanted. And they had an incredible display of savoury pastries in the front of the restaurant. If I wasn't so full, I would have bought a bunch of those for later. We went for dinner and I am told that they are quite popular for breakfast. As a bonus, I learned from friends that the restaurant staff also do quite a lot to support programs for struggling teenagers. You could easily get a fast meal here, but if you have time to linger you are likely to get a meal for your mind as filling as the meal for your body. I am not from the West Bank and do not speak Arabic. I was brought to the restaurant by local friends who talked it up. A rare case where expectations did not exceed the real thing.More
I came in for a quick bite and I had a wonderful soup with some meat pastries. Food was incredible but what I loved even more was the service I received and the positive energy from the owner Nasser. Wow what an incredible person. His...positive energy is contagious. I got great food with a show. I will definitely go back for the food and the positive vibe.More
I just ate here with my friends and must say I have rarely (if ever) met a nicer staff! Lma’lim (owner) was very welcoming and helpful in explaining all the ingredients (I have many allergies). I would highly recommend the place as it is also...English, allergy, gluten and vegan friendly.
Lma’lim thank you for your hospitality. (Greetings the girl from Amsterdam)More
I took few manakish for take away and suprisingly they were two times expensive than in other places I had been in Ramallah. What is worse is that on the first bite I realised that some of them were at least one day old....therefore not...edible. I do not recommend you this place.More
