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.

I can't tell much about this restaurant. The service was relatively good and the middle-eastern food we ordered was decent but not that great, so - average..

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.
