We were welcomed by a very lovely wait-staff person, unfortunately she did not wait on us. Our waitress was not only unfriendly, she was surly and rude. I asked for a glass of wine and was told they only sell it by the bottle, I was not given the option of a half bottle which they sell and my husband... More

We came here for lunch. They give you a lot of salads as a starter, it's included, so you can try things and they will also refill them. It's very good food for a reasonable price. The atmosphere is not so great, but it's all about the food here. Would definitely come back

The food was delicious plus having all the sides was fun trying everything. My kids enjoyed the place because they could choose the meat they wanted. We even were able to bring home the leftovers. The service was very good. Close to the shuk for convenience after shopping. Overall very clean and restrooms are upstairs.

Sima has been there forever, offering special Jerusalem dish called Meorav, which is a grill of inner part of the chicken, liver, heart, etc. The quality of the food is high, it is clean, and open until midnight, a place were Jerusalem residents grab a late night bite

This was a very popular restaurant 20 years ago. In the mean time many more typical meat restaurant opened. Still you get a good choice of salads that are refilled continuously. Try their different barbecued meats. Great with kids.
