Hostile unfriendly manner greeted us. Food worse then disgusting! Overcooked dry leathery chicken. Old chips and greasy salad. Short grey hairs in the salad. When we complained we were verbally abused and intimidated by the 'manager' who chased us up the alleyway shouting abuse in Arabic! All in all a very unpleasant experience and we are raising a complaint with... More

Took 5 clients to this restaurant. Soup portion was so small you could have probably 5 spoonfuls of it. Client said it was very watery. Cost was crazy at 15 shekels. Mediocre felafel, tehina, hummus. Worst part was the waiter putting in the orders on a loud intercom that disturbed all patrons. Not pleasant.

We had lunch as fixed group menu so everybody ate falafel/pita/hummus. It was not he best falafel but edible. The service was kind and friendly. The hummus was delicious.

We popped in here to eat before heading off on our tour of the tunnels. The food was of a very high quality (we only wanted something sandwich style), but I think I can honestly say it was the best filled pitta I have ever eaten....and the 3 people with me agreed! While we were sitting, my husband mentioned that... More

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.

Our small group were delighted with the huge selection of salad and vegetable plates plus pita bread, felafel, humus, tahini and nameless other dishes with stuff to be scooped up with bread! It's a cellar and has decent toilets!

I visited this restaurant twice, the first time for lunch with a group I was travelling with, the second as I was wandering the streets alone a week later. Both experiences were good. The food was good, plenty of it and very good service. A week later I just needed a place to relax for a minute and have a... More

I would not normally write a review of a place where all we had was coffee, but this one stands out. It has a cave-like interior that is completely in keeping with the old city. One could feel confident that this this structure has been there for a long time. It was a cool respite on a very hot day.... More

We stopped for lunch after our tour of the Western Wall Tunnels. What a beautiful and interesting place. Lovely to sit and soak in the atmosphere while waiting for lunch. We had a basic lunch of falafel (15 NIS) and tabbouleh (8 NIS) and some hummus (8 NIS). Plus a drink, lunch for 2 was about 45$. Bathrooms were nice... More

I'm asian and therefore naturally I love spicey food, I've tried a lot of the place in Al Quds and there all tasteless as they have no spice but this place proved otherwise, very tasty... More
