Tourists looking for a classy night out on the town should direct their attention to Sheyan. Everything from the elegant ambiance to the exotic menu will leave you feeling pampered, your taste buds engaged, your bellies satisfied. Especially if you have a special occasion to celebrate, a visit to Sheyan is a must for this trip.
This Asian fusion restaurant is located in the upscale neighborhood of Rechavia and is situated just below The Windmill, a historic monument in Jerusalem. Sheyan has done an exquisite job of creating a luxurious and authentic ambiance with dim lights and Asian-inspired greenery and décor – even the dishes and furniture have an elegant Chinese style, to master the perfect atmosphere for this classy restaurant.
Sheyan serves Chinese/Asian dishes with a unique blend of flavors. They consider their menu to be a fusion of Asian spicing with some Israeli zest. Exotic dishes include paired beef in a mango and kiwi sauce, ginger-spiced sea bass, and of course a variety of delicious sushi platters. All meals can be complemented with a nice wine selection.
Sheyan’s specialty lies in the unique flavors that they add to their food, making an ordinary dish really pop. Entrecote is just a steak, but when Sheyan serves it with eggplant, chili, and sesame oil, it becomes something different, exotic, sensational.
A main course at Sheyan will run you between 75-100 NIS, with side dishes costing another 20-50 NIS. While your meal might be a bit pricey, if you’re only doing this just once this trip, you certainly won’t regret it.
