Traditional food at a great price! The most wonderful restaurant experience and most well known in the downtown area. The meal is only about 6 USD. Hot bread, foul (beans) houmous, salads... excellent service and delicious food!

Very good and cheap one. Just only they did not have the menu to read and no tissue paper. The food is excellent vegetarian (I guest, I did not see the meat there). But it has a good taste.
