“Good food...not cheap.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We ate here on our first night in Jerusalem. Another restaurant near the hotel to placate the weary teenagers. This one came recommended by our tour guide.

We ate in an enclosed outdoor part of the space. It was nice, not that fancy. The service was okay...nothing particularily bad or good. I think by this part of the trip we had become accustomed to the indifference that many of the restaurants showed tourists.

I had the chicken breast with mango sauce. It was very good....a really interesting blend of flavours. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meals. We had other more memorable meals in the city, but this was a good start. The prices seemed a little high, but not out of line with other area restaurants.

There were some interesting option on the menu. The food was quite good and reasonably priced for the quality and size of portions. We did have better,meals in Jerusalem, but I would recommend this restaurant too.

“Nice kosher restaurant at intersection of Jabotinsky and King David Street”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Nice place, excellent food, maybe not the cheapest. Easy to find at the corner (at the side of Jabotinsky Street).

“Very Nice Evening”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Very nice meal at a reasonable price. The salads and appetizers were the best part. The entrees were only okay. Try the sweet potato appetizer if you go. Delicious!
