Reviewed 17 January 2017

Placed in the near by area to my house I've marked this restaurant for a visit.
Booked a table for Saturday lunch as the place is not too big.
Have nice variety of authentic dishes.
Prices are not chip but still in a reasonable range
Don't get confused by the term "shef" in case you are looking for a fancy place

All dishes tasted (6 people sharing) were perfect.
Like chef's involvement and investment in typical mediterranean dishes - not too much, but felt exactly in the context.
Accompanied by Yiftahel's Rose 2014 for first course and Gat Nitzan's Cabernet-Sangiovese 2006 for main was success. (wines not from menu).
Sweets were very interesting and tasty.

We came in the middle of the week to celebrate birthday. The restaurant was not loaded so the expectation were not very high but...
Food was great! each dish was totally different from the other and every one of them was very testy... The service was also great. This is not the regular middle eastern restaurant... It is a gourmet cuisine with local flavors.

Went there on a Thursday night without too many expectations. So the place looks decent, not too fancy which tricks you at first. Waitresses are casual, and bashful. We tried the tasting dinner which includes four starters and two main courses.
Then the plates start arriving and they are amazing to watch. One by one you are surprised, they are truly beautiful and delicious. Very interesting Arabic food with modern twists to it.
By the time we finished with the starters we were already full. You are served with a very wide range of elements.
Desert was tahini creme brûlée - excellent.
The chef also walks around and talks with the guests, great atmosphere.
We're definitely coming back!!!!!

Highly recommended to fans and lovers of Arabic cuisine and authentic Galilee food in which the restaurant is specialized. With the only difference that the dishes having a characteristics of rich with flavorful components, have also an eye pleasing aesthetic form of their plating - under rigorous supervision of chief Omar Eloan. For example - Seafood Galilee risotto of surprisingly smoked texture; deep fried Cuba with al dente salad of lentils with sprinkles of vegetables; Calamari sudzhuk with carrot cream, labneh and shallots; Goose breast on the grill with Fricke and mushrooms in the beef broth; and typical desserts that all suddenly become charming and delicious in new way: such as amazing in its creamy consistency Malabi or Semolina with ricotta and berries.
