No doubt this is a special restaurant with very good food. But the noise was so disturbing that I do not think I'll come again.

Don't be fooled by it's modest appearance and surroundings. The name is that of a very popular food market in Jerusalem - and the restaurant is in the neighbourhood.

The food is innovative and tasty and chef's (the grapevine says that there are three of them) surprise you with delicious combinations, surprising taste accents and even good Israeli wine served by the glass, that they let you check out.

I got there with a friend visiting from abroad, at an unusual hour - expecting an almost empty restaurant. To our surpass it was packed (at 4 PM) but the host was very accommodating and after a quarter hour we were seated (better be prepared an reserve seats even at unusual hours!). We had ver tuna salad (one of the best I ever had) and spicy minced meat with tahini (I don't recall the name) very good too. The main course very also very very tasty (a see bas and veal fillet) and the portions were generous.

I will most likely go there many times.

The only slight negative about this restaurant is that also they do not appear to be a Kosher restaurant they are closed on Shabat.

Service is superb and the food does not disappoint. The main dishes are more than enough for two (at the end of the day, the price is similar, maybe lower than that of other similar reataurants). The ambiance is also really nice.

Friendly atmosphere, market-like setting.Original way of setting the tables and menu. Good food of course. If you seat at the Chef's Bar you get to see how the food is prepared and how they sing and dance!

Best meal/experience ever. Tasting menu delicious: tuna and steak tartar equal to best in new york city; mains inventive and delicious. chef is welcoming of young and old and in between cooking, he pulls out the drum sticks to drum along with the music. most fun and best meal in years. chef and his food rocks, as good as anything I've had in home town of new york city! As an older single client, wait staff, greeter, all treated me with respect and warmth. best new york restaurants are second best to machneyuda; most fun and fabulous food in years.
