Genuine Mideast cuisine that happens to be kosher. They have great appetizers, salads and traditional main dishes. Very flavorful and fresh. Service is quite good.

The food at Tavlin is great. Amazing Israeli food with some veggie options. For my kids I usually order 1 adult portion an split it because the kids meal is really small. Authentic yummy food.
