Off of a group of 14, 9 hated the food. The bill we got resembled a bill from pricy fancy chef cuisine. Not a simple Mideastern place. 3 hours later - kids have tummy ache along with diarrhea. Really, stay away from this place.

Great place, friendly, clean open on Saturday with excellent dishes. The lemonade is a must. Try the stuffed lamb!

El Babor is a pleasant Arabic restaurant with a varied menu.The food is delicious with large portions.I enjoyed the Kabbab whilst my family enjoyed chicken and meat dishes.The range of salads served with each meal are also of high quality.In sort a culinary treat for the whole family.

The food here is incredible! This place is not duplicated anywhere in the World! The Syrian Kabob is AMAZING! The starter salads are all delicious! Service is excellent! Again, a MUST when I am in Israel! This may very well be my favorite restaurant in all of Israel!

I have been twice there and it was either good. The salads are very fresh, various and typical of the local arab kichen. We had lamb ribs; lamb stuffed with rice and as desserts, malabi and knafe. I really think it was the best I ever had in this type of restaurants. The service is very nice and friendly. Prices... More

Tasty food, decent service (although it seems the waiter ignored some of the requests) Impressive building with thick walls and high arched ceiling). Very delicious salads, very juicy kabab. Prices a bit expensive- 80-120 nis for standard entrees, almost double what other places charge.

Way way over priced for what you get. I've been to many restaurant this style, here it feels like the menu is designed purely to rip you off. Food itself is OK, not bad... Fries that were served next to the 130nis lamb chops was inedible :-( Bottom line, if find other options in the area, you should skip this... More

Good food. Excellent service. Price a little expensive. In short, a great place for lunch on the way to or from the North.

Every thing is perfect, wonderful owner, very kind stuff and very intimate design, Palestinian, middle eastern, traditional and halal/kosher food. you pay for something worth, and you will not taste palestinian food better than this.
