It has the potential of being an excellent restaurant but bad attitude and service combined with salads lacking in imagination ruined it. The salads were boring. The meat which was recommended to have "medium" came out bloody and so did the Kebab (chopped meat). When we asked them to put it back on the grill, we got attitude. We were... More

Offers more than just Turkey Shwarma, also Calf with Lamb. Very good, clean and fast. This is more of Street-Food than a Restaurant.

An authentic chef restaurant based on the traditional Palestinian cuisine, with a modern, sophisticated twist. The place is pleasant, in a very central roundabout in the historic city. They have napkins with anecdotes of the Palestinian heritage of the city, too often written out by Israeli chroniclers. The food is exellent and well presented. No alcohol, according to islamic law.

Food is always fresh, tasty and the best Stuffed lamb in the world!!!! Fantastic friendly service makes this restaurant a must for any visitor to Tel Aviv and Jaffa.

We walked around Jaffa on Shabat trying to find an authentic place. We looked in through the windows and it looked good and tasty... however.. the place is a bit disappointing compared to what other restaurants TLV has to offer. The meat was ok, but the salads/mezze were far from convincing, the bread was hard within 2 minutes of arrival...... More

Went for a business dinner. We shared a mix of small "salads" which was great for tasting different flavours. Had a mix of kebabs for the main that were tasty as well. Overall a pleasant experience.

This place is not more then OK. Looking at the line of people, waiting to get inside I was expecting the most amazing place but it was not better then any other restaurant I've visited.
