Me and my partner ordered the beef bun and the fish bun. The fish one was definitely my favourite. Quite big buns with lots of filling. Friendly service. Would love to visit again.

One of my favorite restaurants in Tel Aviv. Food is just great. The soups are very good too. Small so not good for large groups
