Late lunch, it was sort of quiet so I was able to sit at the counter. The guy behind the counter recommended the kebab plate. Everything was tasty: 3 smallish lamb (I think) patties, tahini, salad and rice which was really good. Also excellent lemonade....It looked like they were also serving chicken that was diced up and cooking on the grill. Would definitely like to go back before I leave. Recommended to me by a fabric vendor in the market.More

I've never seen such a bad service. Waited for 50 mins to get a dry and disgusting kebab. Worst restaurant in Tel Aviv for sure.

The personal is super rude, aggressive, and not professional, if that’s not enough the food was not more than mediocre, plenty of other good places in the Carmel market, I would recommend to stay away from Shmuel!

Came across this great place while walking around Carmel market. So glad we stopped . Fresh tasty kebabs served with a green side salad and tahini . Flavours great . The owner “hands on “and passionate about quality food prep and service. My husband had...a Tuborg Red beer with his pita kebab meal and said it was the best combination.More

Stopped into Shmuel at the Carmel Market. We didn't want the long restaurant experience, just a quick bite & hopefully find something good. Little place, if you're lucky you'll get a seat at the bar. We ordered beers and the Lamb Pita Sandwich. No regrets!...This pita sandwich was so fresh & delicious. There are two sizes. The small was plenty for me. We will be back.More

I got a kebab pita for take away. Since it‘s a popular spot at the market place, I had to wait for the food to be prepared. But it was definitely worth the waiting! The staff was friendly. Don’t hesitate to ask them for any...translations. An english card is hanging outside at the market side.More

Shmuel kabab is made by good meat and spices, accompanied by salad and rice. Everything fresh and tasty.
