I have been twice there and it was either good. The salads are very fresh, various and typical of the local arab kichen. We had lamb ribs; lamb stuffed with rice and as desserts, malabi and knafe. I really think it was the best I ever had in this type of restaurants. The service is very nice and friendly. Prices... More

Tasty food, decent service (although it seems the waiter ignored some of the requests) Impressive building with thick walls and high arched ceiling). Very delicious salads, very juicy kabab. Prices a bit expensive- 80-120 nis for standard entrees, almost double what other places charge.

Way way over priced for what you get. I've been to many restaurant this style, here it feels like the menu is designed purely to rip you off. Food itself is OK, not bad... Fries that were served next to the 130nis lamb chops was inedible :-( Bottom line, if find other options in the area, you should skip this... More

Good food. Excellent service. Price a little expensive. In short, a great place for lunch on the way to or from the North.

Every thing is perfect, wonderful owner, very kind stuff and very intimate design, Palestinian, middle eastern, traditional and halal/kosher food. you pay for something worth, and you will not taste palestinian food better than this.

Albabo supports terrorism and refuses to condemn the Arab terrorists. It has a few restaurants and tomorrow striker .. Besides that i found it a "falztany" restaurant, which is a hebrew word for being pretentious..I left a bit deflated..later i found out that they are not very peace loving people and now i would never eat there at all ever...

The arab town of Uhm el Fahem is located in the road from Tel Aviv to Tiberias. The restaurant is big, with oriental ornaments. We started with a multi-salads dish that included over 15 differen salads. Then we got our rice-stuffed lamb throat which was delicious. The "knafe", a warm desert with salted cheese, kadaife and honey was delicious -... More

Our tour guide brought us to this restaurant on the way from the north to Jerusalem and it was great! We had a "tasting menu" of sorts. The dishes were plentiful and excellent. It was expensive for lunch but there was a huge amount of tasty middle eastern food and we had leftovers to take back to our apartment in... More

We visited this restaurant many times in the past and have enjoyed every visit. Special place, service was good and generous, very fresh and unique salads, lots of vegetables, refreshing and tasty. The meat was very good, we especially recommend a dish called mansaf. Prices reasonable. We will come back.

Thank oferfrid
