But is this all? Here are a few things that the customers had to say about 12 Chairs Cafe:

What an experience! Went for dinner on Saturday night, took awhile to be seated, but to be expected as the place was packed. We did 4 of the small plates which were perfect for our group size of 4. Loved the shouk salad, really fresh. Sweet potato fries, hummus & Israeli wine were really good. Grilled chicken was ok. We enjoyed the chocolate mousse very much for dessert. Whole place was dancing on chairs / tables from 9pm onward. Great, loud music and energy from those dining and staff! Would love to go back!Nicole Sparacio
Very fun and festive restaurant! Super casual with absolutely amazing Middle Eastern/Israeli food. I strongly recommend this for a fun group of people. It can be very loud so if you're looking for a place for easy conversation this probably is not right for you.Atmosphere: 5 (but LOUD)Service: 4.5Food: 4.5Value for Experience: 5 This is a 'must go'!– John Coulson
