  • Rachel L.Some of the creamiest hummus I've ever had. Don't sleep on the Crudo or lamb kibbe. And the Israeli salad martini was great too.

    55555 by Rachel L.

  • William RTruly amazing Israeli food. The Tayim tasting menu is a great value, and a great way to try a bunch of different foods on the menu. The Turkish hummus and Brisket Kofte were both out of this world.

    55555 by William R

    55555 by Lauren Mac

  • Emily SSplurge on the tasting menu, it's worth it (and as far as tasting menus go, not too pricey). Eat slowly and save room as you go. The service is exceptional, on par with the best. 10/10.

    55555 by Sarah P.

  • CNTraveler“The hummus and house-made laffa alone are worth the dinner price, as are the amazing salatim vegetable salads.”- Peter Jon Lindberg

    55555 by CNTraveler

  • Grace L.Haven't tried the famous lamb shoulder, but everything is delicious here, so get the Tayim or Mesibah so you can sample as much as possible!

    55555 by Nathan W.

  • Bradford RileyMake a reservation to make sure you get a table.

    55555 by Bradford Riley

  • Jake S.The only thing you should ever order is the Mesibah (Hebrew for "party"), the chef's tasting menu. It's worth it, without a doubt.

    55555 by Jake S.

  • Hollie H.Get the chefs recommendation, you won't regret it. Best food in Philadelphia

    55555 by Hollie H.

    55555 by Tim W

  • jana f.Best meal in town.

    55555 by jana f.

    33333 by Bailie

  • Jeremy R.We grabbed one of the last spots available that night. The food was delicious and I wish I didn't order that second pitcher of spiked lemonade.

    33333 by Jeremy R.

  • Rachel AThe garlic butter hummus is the best I've tasted in America, and the service is excellent. Only shame is that it's not kosher, just Israeli style cooking.

    55555 by Rachel A

    55555 by Ryan M.

  • jana f.Skip the lemonana cocktail but get everything else, including extra servings of the killer house made pita.

    55555 by jana f.

  • Mitchell CFood was amazing. We loved the grilled haloumi.

    55555 by Mitchell C

  • Michael C.The Marbled Rye cocktail is very boozy. Try the Lemonnana for a lighter cocktail that still has Jim Beam in it.

    55555 by Michael C.

  • EaterBring a group for the breathtaking smoked lamb shoulder braised in pomegranate juice. No place else in America serves such a sensuous, transporting, and finely wrought feast.

    55555 by Paul S.

  • donna tGet one of the tasting menus - the service was impeccable and food phenomenal!

    55555 by donna t

  • Farah VEasily one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Go for the "Tayim" - you'll be incredibly full (like, for a few days), but not disappointed.

    55555 by Farah V

  • Omer Z.Everything was truly phenomenal except the lamb shoulder—I'd stick with the mezze and skewers.

    55555 by Omer Z.

  • Brian AIt's all fantastic

    55555 by Tom B

  • Alex H.Best restaurant in Philly. Probably the best meal of the year for me. Lemonana. Must try haloumi and cauliflower. Any of the al'haesh options. Worth staying for dessert too!

    55555 by Alex H.

  • Raj S.The small plates and salads can be a meal by themselves. Their specialty appears to be roasted lamb, but it's available only with the tasting menu, which is unfortunate.

    55555 by Raj S.
