From Our Readers
From: Chavie G. Date: 26 Jan, 2011. Description: I ate last night at RYU in Jerusalem and it was an incredible dining experience.  The restaurant was clean and aesthetically pleasing,  The staff were knowledgeable and were able to make appropriate suggestions.  When we asked to change tables so as not to be by the door, they were accommodating.  The food was delicious and it seemed like all of the patrons were enjoying as well. The food was presented nicely and the staff were respectful and not pushy.The prices were more than fair and we all had a lovely time.
Thank you.
