A clean and nice place very close to the western wall in the arabic quarter. Meat is bad, shawarma has no taste, hummus is the commercial one from Shufersal market, also falafel are not great. In addition they accept only cash, not cards.

The Hummus had little taste to it and could have just come out of a packet. They went nest door for my ice cream. We found the food basic and I would avoid it. Staff were friendly.

In short: we could forgive the lack of quantity if we had quality. It's a pity to serve middle eastern food that is so tasteless. Very bad value for price experience.
