      Does anyone know more info on this restaurant? Would like to stop in next week, but not sure it's worth it.

        i went there with my wife and daughter, they liked it, although fairly standard israeli fare. rather an israeli ambience too with more Ivrit than ENglish spoken by the patrons. Food was good, not outstanding

        I was there with my sister. Sushi was really fresh and tasty. The Yemenite soup was great.

          It is so strange that we have restaurants that would serve good sushi and also good Yemenite soup.

            Strange? Not at all. In NYC if a restaurant is kosher it must have sushi or go out of business. Every pizza place has sushi. Even Deli Kasbah has sushi, along with videos of the rebbe. It has gotten silly. I would strongly suggest asking if a restaurant is really kosher if it doesn't serve sushi,

          the sushi I had was amazing. I usually stick to my vegetable roll comfort zone, but the Harakiri sandwich roll was mouth watering.

          The turkey sandwich I had felt like nothing special, though. I'd gladly go back for the sushi, but probably not for the deli.

            It's a shame because all I want in life right now is a good deli. I will try the sushi, though.
