Fabulous food, value, atmosphere, and service!

This was my second time to the restaurant, and it lived up to the memory. The food is fresh and delicious, yet simple and honest. There is lots to choose from, and the prices are all very reasonable for the amount and quality that you get. The owner makes you feel at home, is patient in answering... read more

I have checked out the restaurants particularly in the Glebe and I have settled on Jericho as the most enjoyable place. The food is consistently fresh and the prices are still the lowest in the area. Raouf Omar from Palestine has crafted an interesting menu with some dishes you won't find elsewhere. The hommous is exceptional and the honeyed chicken... More

Jericho is one of those restaurants whee you feel like you are in your mother's kitchen. The owner/server treats you like a member of the family. The food is very good with generous portions and the freshness of the ingredients is very evident. One of our favourites is the lentil soup. We keep going back.

We discovered this place by accident as we were in downtown Ottawa looking for parking space so that we could have lunch. This is the first place we saw and the ethnic theme caught our attention not having any experience in this type of cuisine. It turned out to be great find for us. It is relatively small and the...

My family and I were apprehensive about dining here at first because the time was beyond typical lunch hour and way too early for dinner (2.30pm on Saturday July 12th), but decided to try Jericho. We were completed satisfied with our meals and happy that we made a decision to walk through the doors. The food was fresh (albeit in... More

This is one of the few places I consistently go back to visit when I return home. I have been many times and have never been dissapointed. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted warmly by the host and owner of the resteraunt. He is happy to make recommendations based on your preferences for eating if... More

Jericho is a restaurant with an atmosphere that makes you want to like it. Unfortunately, at an early dinner, the food served was mediocre at best, making such a positive feeling impossible. The falafels, spinach pie and the potatoes came very hot and dry in a way that suggested they had been microwaved. The taste was not unlike that of... More

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
