Tonight my man returned from England and we went straight to Jericho for a welcome-home dinner. This small and welcoming place has been an extra family kitchen for many years-- We have enjoyed its delicious Spanakopita, Shawarmas, Fish and Chips, and Honeyed Chicken dishes, amongst others. We also love the greetings and conversation with Raouf Omar and his son. Raouf... More

Decided to walk in without checking any reviews. It's very clean, decor a little quirky but interesting. The good was very good. We had the lentil soup (best lentil soup I've had in a Mediterranean food restaurant), the humus (sprinkled with a little smoked paprika-nice touch) and Kafta cooked to perfection. If you're in the mood for Mediterranean food and... More

The food is very authentic and delicious. The drinks are great! You can't beat the prices for what you get! The art that is made and displayed by the owner is breath taking and for sale. I loved the art so much that I bought a piece. One of the best places to eat in Ottawa!

Tasty Middle-Eastern food and warm welcome with a big smile. Same place, same faces since 20 years...It was great to be back to a place I feel so much at home! Thanks Raouf for sharing your compassion stories on the Israeli-Palestine area. With the walls of the restaurant covered by the owner's colourful paintings, it is truly like travelling to... More

My DineAround group went to Jericho last evening and I think everyone enjoyed the experience. It's a nice place to make your favorite hangout. The art is fantastic, the owner most congenial. The food was generally very good but my fatoush salad was far too salty. The prices are good. The service is slow. He really needs another server when... More

If you're in the mood for fresh, authentic, and tasty middle eastern food this is the place to go! Great food (get one of the house specials, I like the chicken wrap) with such friendly and pleasant service from the owner Omar, whos beautiful art adorns the walls. Awesome hummus and baba too! Check it out you'll be back for... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this place. Just to clarify it is not a Lebanese restaurant (as described by many of the reviews posted on-line) It is owned by a Palestinian and an Israeli - loved the glass work on the walls and the service was friendly. We ate the Lamb, humus, lentil soup and had mint tea. Do not... More

I have always enjoyed my meals here not just because of the good food and the DELICIOUS rose-water iced tea but also because of the wonderful host and the his artwork that surrounds you. Highly recommended: Baba Ghanouj, Rose-water iced tea

This place is great. We only recently put it back into our rotation when dining out and I can't figure out why we stopped in the first place. Omar, the co-owner is always upbeat and more than willing to discuss his dishes when asked. He even told me his secret for making his kaftas so tender and fluffy, unlike mine... More
