In 2005, Sarah and Abraham opened Bahur Tov. The meaning of ‘Bahur Tov’ in Hebrew is, ‘a good guy.’ Bahur Tov is located in the 2nd district, where the heart of Vienna’s Jewish community lives amongst many other Kosher restaurants, stores and synagogues.
When you enter the restaurant, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled back in time, and to the Middle East, especially with the big screen TV blaring Middle Eastern music.
Bahur Tov serves up a mixture of Israeli-Bukhari food. The menu offers traditional Bukhari dishes, such as the delicious Oshpelo (rice cooked with beef, chicken and lots of onion and carrots), and some Israeli classics, like the ‘Bahur Tov’ mixed plate which is a perfect sampler of Israeli salads, Hummus and yummy hot Falafel balls that the mother of the restaurant, Sarah, makes everyday by hand. These alone are worth coming back for.
The menu is a nicely balanced mix of vegetarian and meat-y dishes (the selection of skewers is extensive). There are also a range of pita sandwiches to choose from, and, randomly, a few Asian dishes.
Plus, the tables are big and perfect for sharing!
