Lonely Planet review for Al-Quds Restaurant
The Jerusalem Restaurant is famous for its sweets and pastries, but the large restaurant at the back shouldn't be overlooked. The menu is in Arabic, and most waiters can only be bothered to translate a couple of items before getting huffy. The speciality of the house is mensaf, a Bedouin dish of lamb on a bed of rice.
