The whole experience was great! We ordered half the menu and I’d say my favorites were the hummus, wood roasted carrots and lamb kofte

Ate dinner here for the first time. Had the red pepper dip with feta at the suggestion of the server and it was delicious! Fresh pita was great. Fries were great, as were the entrees of short rib and carrot. Flavors were full and complex. Server was knowledgeable and helped answer a lot of questions and provide recommendations . We will be back because there’s a lot on the menu we didn’t get to try yet!

As always, the food is delicious and very authentic. We had the hummus, pickled vegetables, falafel bowl and Israeli salad. The only thing we mentioned is that the pickled beets were rock hard but other than that it was delicious. Miss the Halloumi cheese though and wish they would bring it back.

Ash’Kara is a place that has consistently great food and a great atmosphere. We tried almost all of the entrees and the sides, it was hard to pick a favorite! Everything was so delicious. Cant recommend the pita and hummus enough. Can’t wait to go back.

Absolutely delicious. Best meal of the year. We ordered pickled veggies, olives, hummus, octopus and lamb. Fantastic. Had a great waiter. Fun vibe. Took a little while to get served and to get food but not a lack of good and friendly service.

I have lived and worked in Israel for almost 10 years, and my wife and I have tried every Israeli / Mediterranean place in Denver and Boulder, trying to find something comparable to the amazing food there. Ash'Kara is by far the best we have found - and reminds me of the restaurants in Tel Aviv's food scene. We went for lunch and had the lamb, hummus, roasted carrots, fatoosh salad, and baklava - along with the best pita bread we have found in the US - by far! We will definitely be back for the dinner menu!

As usual, the service here is excellent. I have been disappointed recently as the kitchen is not preparing the food quickly and sometimes brings out entrées for not all the guests at the same time. I know this is Covid time and feel this will change once the restaurant is able to open to full capacity.

I can’t say enough about the service. The service staff is extremely knowledgeable about the food and caters to their clients. I am so fortunate to have this restaurant gem in my backyard.

The food is always incredible. Any of Juan Padro’s concepts are amazing. I highly recommend the chicken shawarma for lunch and the lamb or half chicken for dinner. Having lived in Saudi Arabia I know my hummus and Shawarma and this place is top notch. Make sure you get the hummus!

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and most importantly the food! We tried many of the dishes and they were all fantastic! I’m a bit of a foodie and I would highly recommend checking this place out! Yummy! The short rib fell apart and melted in your mouth. All of the dips were fantastic with rich full flavors that were not overwhelming. They complimented to different plates nicely.

We arrived at 5:30 for a 5:45 reservation. At 6:15 the waitress told us that we’d need to leave by 7:15 for their next reservation. We had 9 people and were planning on enjoying a long night. Worse yet, when we finally left at 7:30 there was no other reservation.

Great staff, ambiance, and the food was delish. Excellent customer service! Hostess proactively notified us of patio conditions (we booked patio table for a day with high temp of 9 degrees) so we could assess whether to re-book for a different day or to book table inside. What a thoughtful thing to do!
