The official photo of this restaurant (above) says it all. Their portions of falafel, pita, and shwarma are huge, easily enough to feed 30 people. Wide variety of delicious toppings that they keep coming, especially if in a larger group. Also the kebab variety entree is delicious as well. And their pita bread is fresh and warm, almost too hot, which is very good. The restaurant, although big, can get cramped, because it is so popular. Highly recommended for groups of 8+.

RECOMMENDED: Non-descript neighborhood near Jaffa. Not fine dining, they hustle you in, large or small group, table close together, noisy and then food starts to come out, one dish after another. It's great fun. The waiters all in a bad mood, but they're in a bad mood for everyone, but good service, You won't be hungry for long.

It may be expensive for local standards and sure it attracts some tourists (in my case my local colleagues taking me out), but quality is high and makes for a fun evening of food and drink.

Came here with a group. The others ordered meat but we all agreed that the salads and delicious hot out of the oven bread was enough for a full meal.

We made a reservation for a weeknight so we had a table as soon we got there. The place was busy but not full.

The location just over the border between Tel Aviv and Jaffa was convenient too. It was a short walk back to our lodgings in Tel Aviv.

This is a typical Israeli food restaurant, with all you can eat salads that are flowing to the table till you ask for mercy and amazing freshly baked bread.
It is a bit on a pricy side to Israeli fare, but the quality of meats is great.
My favorite is goose liver and lamb chops.

3rd visit which never disappoints. The 30 or so entrees which offer a massive variety if vibrant colours and flavours. Accompanied by meat and kebabs cooked to perfection with amazing taste. 516 ils for 3 people is very good. Amazing staff too
