A cosy place with great atmosphere and nice ambient. I had Mansaf (minced meat with rice), which was ok, but nothing special. Prices rather high (like Israel in general). I can recommend for diner due to the really good atmosphere.

Very friendly place. Environment is original. Waiters are comprehensive and willing to make sure you spend a valuable time while dining there. Food is exotic, very good and worth its price. Strongly recommended.

If you are up for a true jaffa and Tel Aviv experience then go hang out at Puaa. It is filled with young trendies of south Tel Aviv and the food on the plate will not disappoint you.

We ate here two nights in a row- super yummy. I went with my mother and aunt. Great vibes and kind service- I will return. Rumor has it that they have a amazing breakfast though I have only been for dinner. I had the meat lasagne special and my mother had the whole fish which was amazing!! Try the hot... More
