Went to this restaurant twice during my last stay. They have a vast menu with many traditional dishes, both starters/mezzeh but also main courses that is rare to find in restaurants, like molokhiya and mansaf. The service was also great.

We've been here several times over several years and have always enjoyed the food. They are one of the few restaurants that offer more "home-cooked" styles of Palestinian food rather than just grilled meats. They also have very good pizza. On certain nights, there is quite a buzz in the restaurant as it is popular with both locals as well... More

Order the meze! Tahini has never tasted so good, and the local appetizers are delicious. Pizza looked and smelled great too. We got the last table at 7 p.m. (walk-ins), so reservations are recommended

I will tell you something , this place is the best arabic restaurant in Jerusalem. Pizza is great and we all know this but the nicer is the atmosphere, the balcony outside , the great arabic salads , good drinks and okay price. I am there frequent and I have made good friends with the waiters who are extremely professional.

Real Italian pizza oven, certainly the one and only real pizza in Jerusalem. Good selection of European and Arabic salads. Palestinian and Mediterranean cuisine. You will often meet expats and Italians there.
