There is also a link to a service that allows you to download the database to your Palm Pilot. Email inquiries on the database may be sent to the Shamash Kosher Restaurant Team at

Another possibility is KosherNIC Restaurant Index, at This is a searchable database of kosher restaurants around the world. It provides reviews, ratings, maps and driving directions. It is fully searchable by location, KEYWORD, Hashgacha, cuisine, etc.
