When in the Tel Aviv - Jaffa area, a visit isn’t complete without dining at Haj Kahil. Located in the northern end of Jaffa, it’s a nice walk along the ocean promenade from the beach hotels of Tel Aviv. We sat down for about 30...More

We had a company dinner here. The presentation and many small plates of appetizers was impressive. The hummus, bread, salad and juices were excellent! The meat skewers were only OK. I had a chicken and a lamb skewer. I think they could have been cooked...More

This was such a big experience and could might as well be the best meal of our lives! Such an overwhelming table full of small dishes with all a unique and good taste. This is a MUST try in Tel Aviv/Jaffa :)

Had hoped for a better experience. The food was ok - but also just okay. The place had no guests - so we should have taken this warning seriously.

We had a business dinner at the Haj Kahil but I was not impressed with the food. Maybe I just don't enjoy 5 different ways to prepare lamb but the lamb was very gamey. On a positive note, the service and atmosphere were great.

The food, service and entire experience is wonderful! It is busy, loud, and FUN. When you order an entre, you also receive small plate after small plate of absolute delish! (included). The skewers were wonderful too!

An amazing array of meza (small appetizers) and huge main courses. Very moderately priced and friendly staff. There were three of us and we should have only ordered two meals. The best baba ganoush I’ve eaten.

It's Shawarma Haj Kahil at the corner of Shivtei Israel and Avodat Israel where they meet Yefet. There is indoor seating along the side, but we sat out front on the street.
