“Special and unique restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I went there for the second time last month and it was as good as the first time! the mane changes every day, the food is fresh and delicious and it is very special. the whole place can turn into a party in a few seconds, so get ready for a loud atmosphere! its not cheap but its worth it when visiting Jerusalem. and make a reservation!

“Great food, busy, edgy,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Great food selection, loud, happening place. Excellently prepared dishes,using locally inspired approaches and ingredients. Lots of fun, and you can stay hours eating, drinking, relaxing. Probably the best meal we had in 2 weeks in isarel

“Israel's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

A truly astonishing experience with two of the most inspired dishes that I have had recently. The first was Tatani Style Hanger Steak on Rice Noodles. Who would have thought such brilliance in Asian fusion cuisine could be found in Jerusalem of all places. The other great dish was a mid eastern play on sweetbreads. They were served with chick peas and a yogurt tahini sauce. Great stuff. We had the tasting menu and the level of culinary skill in the kitchen was very high. I have only one very small con and that was the lack of local wines available by the glass

if you dont mind being at a party while you eat, and wallops of butter in every dish, and getting drunk and friendly with everybody behind and in front of the bar, enjoy yourself

“Was it worth to wait?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

After a trip to the market, we came to a restaurant without a reservation and a long waiting list ..
We waited more than an hour, the food excellent and tasty little expensive.
Halva ice cream gorgeous!
