It was a hot Friday at noon. Really hot , eve in Israeli terms, and it was my first visit to the Jerusalem station in its new form.
It was rather strange arriving at a place one knows so well as one thing (an real working train station) and walking into something completely different – a shopping and
Entertainment center and though I was a bit apprehensive about what I would find, but was very pleasantly surprised. The result is a fun cool place with lots of interesting stuff and the atmosphere of a sophisticated market place. We looked around at the wide variety of food places, and were spoiled for choice...
The station 9 doesn’t really stand out from the outside. Except for the very interesting black plates on the tables its hard to know what to expect.
Even a quick glance at the menu doesn’t prepare you. I cant really say how we managed to choose after all, because the descriptions seem similar to any other Asian restaurant. Luckily, the waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful and our choice of dishes was perfect. The presentation on the beautiful black tableware, was as fresh and exciting as the food itself. It was simple yet sophisticated, the ingredients were fresh and well-handled with good, balanced flavoring. We sat outside on the somewhat simple patio, but if you step inside you will find it a lot more exciting. Something of a tribute to Nobo and Modern Asian décor. I would like to come back in the evening to see how this cool and refreshing place transpires into an Modern Asian bar.
I have a good feeling about it.

This was really delicious. My husband got Shakshouka and I got a sandwich. Generous portions, fine service, lovely outdoor seating. The menu was varied. Location was lovely. I'd definitely go back next visit.

This is one of the restaurants in the First Station (the restored Ottoman train station in Jerusalem).

There is a nice menu with many options, all vegetarian or fish as this is a kosher restaurant. There are salads, sandwiches, pastas and fish. There is also a variety of baked goods as well. I think anyone can find something good to eat here. There is a child's menu as well. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. I had the "Sabich Yarushlaim" for lunch and a pomegranate juice, which was very good and reasonably priced, especially for such a touristy area.

There is an indoor air-conditioned room that is decorated as if time had stood still and this was still a part of a working old train station. There is also a large outdoor patio area, great for people watching.

Service was good and the wait staff friendly. This is a good spot to re-energize while visiting the First Station.

The place is in the First Station in Jerusalem, a popular and very nice place to take a stroll, see street performers, look at the stalls of artisans and craftsmen.
Very simple style, a kind of "public kitchen" decor.
Food is nicely served and tasty.

Ordered fish 'n' chips with beet salad. The fish was cooked very nicely, moist inside, crispy outside. Both dishes were nicely served on originally designed plates.
The only problem was long waiting for waitress to bring us check. She messed at the counter and was unable to give receipt.
For food - excellent
For service - poor
