“Best Yaman Food Ever had”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

We have been to "Yamani" on Jaffa, in Jerusalem and we had Jahnun and Malawa, and I can say it was the best Yaman food i have ever had + people are really really nice and warm, location is amazing and nice quiet place in the middle of the city center.

I have eaten those before in different places, and it was okay, but when i had here, it was the best impression on me. I would love to go there again. If anyone around in Jerusalem, I highly recommend this place to visit and have great food at amazing place with amazing people.

“Unforgettable”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Terrific restaurant! Do not expect miracles, but the stuff is extremely friendly (and eager to explain all the intricacies of Yemeni dishes which is generally unknown to Europeans), the food is tasty and will provide you with enough energy to withstand another day of exploring Jerusalem neighborhoods, and the prices are very reasonable.

And do try either "marak regel" or "oxen tails"/"znavot shor" soup with "lakhookh" bread, - you won't regret this authentic experience.
