What a surprise find! This was round the corner from our holiday apt so we popped in one night. My guide book said that 'asian' here often meant ' middle eastern' so this was not what we expected at all - proper full on Chinese / Asian menu - and top top quality - as good as any we've had.
Strangely, if door is shut you need to press the buzzer to get in but don't let that put you off - very very good and a complete contrast to everywhere else we ate on holiday

Enjoyable meal. It's right by a picturesque windmill. You have to be buzzed in. One meal was served in a log. They sang happy birthday over a loud recording for my nephew which was fun. The " fondant" dessert was a cake they put a candle in.

i will write the last thing first- we use to save this resturant for special times like anniversary, birthdays.

the place is in an old wind turbine, beautiful place.
the design and the food are Asiatic.

non standart, and interesting food.
i recomend you ask the waiter befor you order because some food can be really spicy or sweet.

high level of service.

they prefer you order a table ahead but i came even in buzy times they allways found us a place.

the "kashrut" is one of the best you can find in jerusalem and find at all.

they are not cheap beacuse the dish are not big (real asian resturant...) and its comes as is, no bread spread or salad added.

the food, the romantic light, the bottles of wine, candles and the type of the food and the price made this place not very suitable for kids.

it could be little crowded so if you on romantic date of private buisness dinner you better pre order and ask for private place at corner.


bottom line - highly recomended place.

Previously visited this wonderful Kosher (Mehadrin) restaurant where top quality food is on offer. Last time, I was with a group and we had a set menu but this time I was with my children and everything we ordered was delicious and we left the restaurant with three empty plates.

The soups chosen were corn and wonton - both excellent
The spring rolls were hot and tasty
We ordered a chicken dish and a beef dish together with rice

The only difficulty with this wonderful restaurant is that you need to be able to climb up a fair number of steps to get to it.

We cannot recommend this highly enough.

We found reviews for this restaurant on line and decided to try it after a long afternoon of walking and shopping. We had to be buzzed in. The restaurant was not crowded and the waitress was courteous and prompt. She spoke fluent English. She was able to answer all our questions about the menu. The food came quickly and was great! We would most definitely go back when we go back to Israel!
