Food was ok at best. We paid 193 NIS for falafel, chicken kebab, two coffees and a water. We were blown away at the price although it was our fault for not asking for a menu.

Since the location was convenient, we popped in for lunch. The food quality ranged from average to poor and the bill was outrageous! Overpriced and mediocre - I would not recommend a visit.
