It takes a lot to gross me out, but this did it. I went to the bathroom and the toilet was full of crap and gross. I mean, truly disgusting. I was really afraid to eat the food, which was good btw, but to know that they keep their bathroom in that state, says a lot about the restaurant. I... More

Were here for ~5 times and it became one of our favourite place to eat on Sundays (when we have a day-off and vegetarian places are mostly closed). Basilicom provides a lot of vegan options (with hummus, falafels, tahini, couscous, etc) that are tasty, big portioned and reasonably priced. Great to see special vegetarian and vegan signs for the dishes... More

I'm from England so only recently been introduced to Israeli food and this one did not disappoint. I loved the food, ambiance and the price was also very reasonable. The staff are also very friendly and helpful in helping you choose the right dish for you. Highly recommend!

When they say big portions they mean big portions. So much food but all so tasty! We had the hummus to start and then chicken shawarma which came with a choice of two sides - the special rice (can't remember what it was called but began with m) was particularly tasty as was the fresh tomato salad. Would definitely recommend,... More
