Funny location in a jewelry mall but boy is it worth the trip. Best Israeli food I’ve had. Everything fresh and delicious. I can’t wait to go back and enjoy this hidden gem again. Best items we tried were the labnith harif & crispy cauliflower, pita is amazing, chicken schnitzel, babaganoush and the lamb sausage. Absolutely loved this place

This place is hidden the middle of a dead space in downtown Miami, but I’m glad we found it. I think we ate half the menu and would have eaten more if we could. The salmon was delicious and the cauliflower was definitely worth mentioning. Service was excellent. Wish this place was located in a better location. Food was well worth the trip.

Thought some of the food was good and some ok. Hummus, chaliah and fish were very good. Fried cauliflower and lamb shawarma platter weren't great and were overpriced for portion sizes. Didn't like taste or texture of lamb - different taste than most shawarma.

Good menu. Excellent food. A bit hard to find. Should make the sign on the street a bit easier to find/read.

Delicious! I ordered the Kale Falafel Pita and Turkish coffee. Sooooo good! The Falafels were moist and flavorful and there were plenty in the pita! Excited to have somewhere to go for a great cup of Turkish coffee as well.

Surprised at how strange the setting is, but food was delicious! Service was also done very well! The salads are all great. Chicken schwarma (sp?) was also great. Hummus = delicious. Just a great, hidden surprise!
