    The Israeli salad and liver and onions were fantastic. They didn't disappoint. You can also choose to split your side if you'd like -- I opted for mashed potatoes to round everything out.

    Delicious food, especially the lamb burgers! Note that this restaurant delivers, a huge plus considering that the space and service isn't on the same level as the food.

    Surprisingly well-priced for the area. Schnitzel was delicious, and their homemade honey mustard dressing is excellent and can be purchased by the bottle.
