“Israeli comfort food”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

Good, basic, homy food, cheap and generous. Order the Red Kubbe soup (Excellent!) and if you're more advanced - the beetroot kubbe soup.

“Absolutely a must while in Jerusalem”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

Their sweet and sour kubbe soup is to die for. Excellent meat dishes such as roastbeef or goulyash, the meat just melts on your tongue. Rahmo is one of the best ways to try local foods and feel the local atmosphere.

“Best hummus I've ever tasted, suerb food overall & vegetarian haven!”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I will never forget my lunch here! We had hummus, pita bread, majadara, and cabbage rolls stuffed with rice. Oh my god, this meal was sensational! There are tons of vegetarian options too. Highly recommended.

Go early to avoid the long lunch lines.

“A real authentic restaurant with delicious, fresh and different atmosphere”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

When a visitor wants to eat special authentic food, there is no better place than going to Shuk Machne Yuda in Jerusalem where there is a number of great local restaurants with real authentic food. Rachmo is one of them. This is a small family run restaurant, you stand in front of a window take a tray and order. The food is cooked on slow kerosene units just like my mother used 50 years ago. The style is Iraqi, with rice, Chomus, Meatballs, stuffed vegetables, Kube etc. Everything is delicious - just order a variety of foods when you are in a group so that everyone can taste many types of dishes. The price is very reasonable and you meet all the locals. If you are used to fancy restaurants, this is a refreshing change!

“genuine israeli cuisine”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

The restaurant is located near the Machane Yehuda market.
A relatively small place, not fancy but offers you a genuine israeli food.
A not expensive place to eat "real israeli food", since the market is a "must" you can take a break at Rachmo's place.
Take a taxi, a bus or the new rail, don't use your car.
(Its also kosher)
