This place is located on one of the main routes in the market and is using this to catch clients.
The owners tell us that they do not have a printed menu and gave us pretty reasonable price for the meal. After he charged us 2 times more saying that the prise he told was only for the main meal and charged us for the every pita bread, humus and pickles that are in any other place addition to main dish. They even charge us 10nis for the black coffee at the end of the meal, which is always given for free in such places to show respect to the guest. The quality of food is well below average.
Avoid this restoration -you can get better quality, better service and far better price in literally any other place.

The place is located on one of the main routes in the market which is its ONLY advantage.
Don't be mislead by the kindness of the owners at the entrance, it will soon change and you will get a rude and arrogant treatment. The owners apparently follow the same pattern - they tell the customer they do not have a printed menu, and finally charge you twice or three times more than expected. They even charge you 10nis for the black coffee at the end of the meal, which is always given for free in such places to show respect to the guest. The shawarma is terrible, and the salads are limited. Beware!

Very very expensive food ( meat overcooked) in this category, we paid 550 shekels for a food we paid 200 shekels the day before at Lina restaurant ( very closed). Yes the room is nice with lovely stones ( old oil cave) but if you don't want to pay only for the atmosphere get out !! The man who welcomed us was unpleasant by the way ... so we don't let a tip !

Arrived at the restaurant by chance after a very nice and friendly welcome.
Order schawarma and humus and drinks. The schawarma was dyr and old and had been standing without heat for a while in the sun. After asking for the bill, he asked a higher price than written no the menu no the wall. 211 shekel . In that price you get doble the amount of food if You would go to any restaurant in the pedestrian street in the center of Jerusalem .
