It is an excellent Yemenite restaurant, with delicious and authentic food and nice service. The best dish - tail soup, this is probably the only place in Jerusalem where you can get it (authentic Yemenite soup from beef tails).

Friendly restaurant close to Jaffa gate on Jaffa/Yafo, gave us a good taste of the traditional Yemenite kitchen. The food was not flawless and the decoration is a bit unpersonal, but the nice owner who served us made this a great dinner and the value is good (certainly compared to the high prices in most Jerusalem restaurants).

Based on other TripAdvisor reviews we decided to try this restaurant for a moderately priced dinner and we were not disappointed! The friendly owner waited on us and was happy to explain the menu to us as tourists unfamiliar with Yemenite food. The Jabuchan (I'm probably saying this wrong but it is a carbohydrate roll of some sort he said is popular at breakfast) was fabulous and should not be missed! We had the turkey schwaya dish with traditional spices - yummy. Too full for dessert so we had to pass that up. If you are looking for a good value in a touristy area, this is the place. We saw locals there as well - always a good sign! Kosher to boot, if you care about that.
