The Shawarma here is the best I've tasted (I chose the lamb, but you can get chicken shawarma, or a mix of the two), with an amazing selection of delicious salads, and truly exceptional lafa, all served with a smile.

It is a Palestinian owned and alcohol free placed, authentic local food with a chef's touch to make it accessible to modern tastes. What real Jaffa is. Lovely place and in the historic center of old Jaffa.
