Noya is now under the hechsher of the Vaad Hakashrus by R'Weiner. If you mention R'Weiners name to Itzik - the owner, you get 10% off or a free glass of wine!

There have been ppl that have successfully pulled off a free breakfast there by asking for it. I wasn't successful. Cafe cafe is a very good option... (check the hechsher).
How did they manage that?

I ordered the premium plate. Nothing on it was good. The filet and sweetbreads were too salty, the pargit and kebab were meh and i had to send the steak back since they served me shoe leather when I asked for medium.

At best this place is a subpar shipudiyah/steakiyah.

Jump on me? lol

They had legit delicious food the other 20x I was there. And the same for everyone I sent there.
This time was meh. So yeh.
Live forever or die trying.

Local bus drivers have them sometimes.

You could get it on almost every local bus what stops by the airport without a picture (5 Shekel) or in the RK office Like Rav Shefa with a picture the +1 for a pic is if you want to load it monthly or yearly it only works by pic +2 is, its free

I challenge you to find a mashgiach who will tell you that his oversight is actually rather poor. Like, "well, the meat is all Rubin, but my standards on overseeing the kitchen a bit weak and I probably miss a bishul akum issue here and there, and sometimes I don't pay attention to which silverware ends up in which dishwasher."
[/quote]

Well, my experience has been that the mashgichim in places with Rabbanut hashgachos have been very candid. I have had responses ranging from, "there really isn't anything you can eat here, if you want mehadrin"  to "this and that and that are ok but not the cooked stuff or this and that cheese" to "almost anything is ok. Only things are this and that specific cold item"  to " this is entirely mehadrin and there is a specific reason why the hashgacho is regular Rabbanut"-  which they explain.

That only addresses the products which are only the half of the equation. The other half is the quality of his oversight.

Fair enough but I guess you have to consider whether you can rely on "ed echad ne'eman b" isurim", after having a discussion with him to confirm basic competence. I guess back to AYLOR.

How are you confirming competence by speaking with him?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
