The restaurant located in an old fortress. Food and service are good. The experience is great, after eating go and sit on the lounge area for a coffee and sweets. Recommended.

We tried to book for 35 people, including children. At first were told that they did not have enough staff to cope unless we came after 2.00 P.M. They told us that they could handle 20 people if we arrived earlier. We agreed to this . After 10 minutes they rang as back and told us that they could handle... More

The place was nice and the staff were friendly. The food was not good. The meat tasted of lighter fluid and the falafel was not fresh. The rest of the salads were mostly mediocre.

Spent about $20/head for a plated lunch of beef and chicken kebab with an assortment of Mezzes. Food is decent and you can be in and out of the place in an hour if group is not too big.

At the entrance of the discrete Muslim village of Naïn, on the main road between Kfar Tavor and Afula, 5 km north-east to that city, in front of a gas station and a… Mc Donald, you shall easily find the large house of Arabic style, housing the restaurant Sahara. The building is not of origin but has been edified in... More

Worst restaurant I've been to for years. The one star is for the service guys, who were fine. As a main course I had the Mouhamar, a so called hen cooked with its juices. Well, the juices were mostly oil; the hen was a grown poultry and its meat was partly overcooked and partly rear. First courses were a mockery... More
