Parallel brings together the experience and background of the three Ozery brothers, Alon, Guy, and Aharon, to create this unique space and product. “We grew up in a home where sesame butter (tahini) was consumed regularly alongside flavourful Mediterranean cuisine. Parallel was born from our history and love for sesame butter. It’s part of our culture and upbringing, and we want to share that with you. There are few ingredients that are as versatile, nutritious, and just as damn tasty as sesame butter. That’s why we decided to make it in all its forms: try it in our dressings, salads, dips, bowls, and our famous homemade halva, and seed what is possible. The three of us share a passion for simple meals with fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and innovative techniques. That, along with our love for good coffee, art, music, and community, is what shapes the Parallel experience.”

Great vibe, amazing food, so tasty and delicious.
The selection of food was great, and our waiter was super in helping us choose for our large party.
We had a variety of dishes and we were all able to enjoy several bites of everything.
The deserts were outstanding and put us all in food comas!!
Would absolutely recommend and go back for more!!

Unusual ethnic food, fresh ingredients, interesting combination of ingredients. Overall very good food. The service was a bit slow and the noise level is very high, tough to have a conversation.

The food is exceptional. This was my 3rd visit. Each time I have been here ... we tend to get crammed into a very small table. On my most recent visit, 3 of us sat at a table for 2... couldn’t fit our food on the table. We had to send dishes back because there was no way it they were going to fit on the table. Had to put the water bottle underneath our chair. We had to ask repeatedly for our coffees ... took about 20 min. Staff are super friendly... maybe need more staff at such busy time? I’m also very happy that you can now make reservations!

There was 3 of us and we received a tiny table, next to us there were three people who got two tables. It was very tight even though we had made reservations.
