The waiter was really nice and the food was delicious! We had Kabab and mixed salad. The mixed salad for 2 people already filled the whole 4 person table completely. Prices are totally ok, not expensive.

Our last night in Bethlehem, our group was looking for a place to eat. We were walking along the street and found this restaurant. We were seated quickly with a very friendly staff. The food was cut and prepared fresh. A variety of traditional salads...with grilled chicken and lamb. I have traveled many times to Bethlehem and the chicken at this restaurant was the best I have ever had. The whole experience was great.More

If you would like to have a good meal - both tasty and good quality - this is a place to choose. The menu is not big - quite a small variety, but very good. Highly recommend lamb shishlik and kebab. The service and personnel...is great, and the prices are reasonable. It’s also located on one of the central streets of Bethlehem.More
