Shakshuka is a traditional Palestinian dish of eggs baked in a tomato sauce. The origin of the word shakshuka is debated, but most likely it comes from the Arabic for "mixture," and the dish itself probably got its start as just that: a mixture of odds and ends cooked in a pan, or a tagine with eggs. Anybody from the Middle East will lightened up, if you mention you are having Shakshuka: it’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner served with lots of pita bread.
We offer fresh, authentic, rustic Palestinian & Middle Eastern food with a hint of the Mediterranean. Pomegranate, sumac, almonds, za’atar, mint, lemons, figs, pine nuts all add to the smell of real Palestinian food, that you can enjoy in our eclectic restaurant. The décor is based on a Bedouin tent merged with pieces from “one thousand and one nights” (and no we do not have a flying carpet).

We enjoy Shakshuka but they need to address the problem with the door - a curtain around it or something and a better closing mechanism. Service and food are very acceptable.

Absolutely love this little gem of a restaurant.

The food is always very tasty with a great range of options.

The staff are very friendly and obliging.

The fact that it's BYOB is a great plus.

One downside was that their door never shut properly (super annoying and drafty in winter) but they seem to have rectified this.

It has gone a little expensive since our first visit, but we enjoyed celebrating my wife's birthday dinner at her favourite restaurant! Book in advance, as every table was taken after we arrived. Very good food!

I love this restaurant. Staff are so professional and polite. We usually get the sharing Mezze . It’s best to book at the weekend as I have seen patients turned away as it is often fully booked, especially at the weekend.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Food at Shakshuka is fresh, tasty and offers great variety. Their vegetarian set menu for two was delicious and our very friendly waitress was happy to exchange the hummus for our preferred baba ghanoush that they always do very well. Service was friendly and efficient and their BYOB is great value.

This was my second visit to Shakshuka and it was as enjoyable as the first. The waitstaff were charming and helpful, the ambience is great, and the choice of dishes is good, allowing for all tastes (1 vegetarian, 1 pescatarian and 3 omnivores). All in all I'd recommend it.

Second visit to this lovely little restaurant - food great, service fast and friendly, good value, love BYOB (small corkage fee) - only complaint was that the place was rather chilly on a wintry evening....

We are regulars at Shakshuka over the years and really like the food. This time we noticed however that the menu has changed and the prices have gone up quite a bit. Also the old menu with the old prices is still displayed in the window, or at least it was when we were there last. It was a bit chilly but the guy said they were installing new heaters. The food is lovely as is the service however.

A great meal as always. A lovely selection of mezze and equally tasty main courses. We always order too much but it makes lunch time something to really look forward to the next day. Brilliant staff and gorgeous decor make Shakshuka one of our favourite places to go for a never-fail casual dinner. Just fabulous.

This restaurant used to be exceptional when it was still 'Little Jerusalem' (under previous ownership?).
Unfortunately the quality of the food has deteriorated while prices have gone up considerably. Set menues are overpriced. All plates now dominated by a hug pile of rice and rather little of the actual dish. Presentation of food is poor. Would not go again
