Worst tourist trap I’ve ever been to. Poor service, limited variety of food, low quality, badly maintained = dirty (see photos); the kitchen is not Arabic, not Palestinian, not Israeli, not Mediterranean, God only knows what the hell is it? And why would this group...More

Askadinya was an excellent dinner choice - we got the basmati rice appetizer, with steak and pasta entrees. Everything was cooked perfectly and the bread was fresh and excellent. We would recommend Askadinya to anyone visiting Jerusalem.

Excellent Palestinian food and friendly, attentive service. An especially great place for lamb or veal. Only downside it that the credit card machine seems always to be broken, so bring some cash. I hate noisy restaurants, and Askadinya is somewhere where you can talk. I...More

I didn’t know what to expect from the name, but this was a surprisingly good Italian restaurant in East Jerusalem. I had the fettuccini alfredo with chicken and mushroom and it was delicious. Service was great - the fresh bread with a garlic butter sauce...More

We have been there for a lunch at Askadiniya. Nice food. Loved their Greek salad and special chicken items. All the items are little soupy. Averagely priced, spent 300 NIS for 3 of us. Taking all into consideration, I would recommend it for you.

Having read all the positive reviews we decided to try this restaurant. How disappointing. I figure it must have been an off day. The staff are super slack - a trial to get anything; my spaghetti was swimming in oil. Overall not a pleasant experience

We had a lovely time in this restaurant. The terrace is nice and peaceful. The service polite and respectful. We loved our chicken portions, chicken in curry sauce and Askadinya chicken. The Roka salad was a bit poor and expensive. Will come back
