Just stumbled on Yamani while walking back from a lot of walking in Old City of Jerusalem to the Central Bus Station.

As noted previously, this is a really friendly family-run place with very reasonable prices and interesting food.

The excellent Jachnun, Oxtail soup, and Okra soup were a wonderful addition to our mid-day stroll down the newly done Jaffa promenade on a chilly Jerusalem day. The service was very friendly and informative, and we were treated to a Yemenite-style tea after our meal. We were happy to have gone in and will come back when we visit Jerusalem next.

I first stumbled on Yamani on a visit last summer and I was lucky I did. It is outstanding Middle Eastern home cooking in a friendly, family atmosphere. The food is simple and authentic. Their meats dishes are all good from turkey dishes to meatballs. Their breads are good and their their rice and okra are about the best around. The owners And helpful. You feel almost like you are eating in their home. This small place is an easy walk from Jaffa Gate. So solid home cooking in a friendly atmosphere, a good combination.

We came across the Yemenite Jewish restaurant by chance. Situation on the main pedestrian street Jaffa Road, we found this to be a very friendly welcoming place. Food very much to be recommended.
My wife had a Yemenite style omelette which went down very well. For two main & drinks we paid about 110 NIS.
A place we would very much recommend.
