The food at this Temple Fortune cafe is all made in-house by two Israeli brothers.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Israeli street food with attitude” – in particular the “lovely falafels” – win nothing but praise for this top “cheap ’n’ cheerful” kosher bar in Temple Fortune (where most surfaces are wipe clean). It’s no criticism of the place to say that Giles Coren awarding it 9/10 this year may have been over-egging the shakshuka a little.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
