Excellent middle eastern cuisine

For middle eastern food this spot is worth a visit..from time to time you might find the service to be average. Let's keep in mind that the price is very reasonable.

We have been eating at this restaurant for years, the food is consistently excellent. The dinner for two that we normally order consists of Humus, Falafel, Baba Ganoush, stewed tomatoes or baked eggplants and Tabouleh as appetizers, all fresh and delicious and served with hot Pita bread. The main course consists of a variety of grilled meats of choice, rice... More

Highly recommend the combo dinner package. You get some of everything, and lots of it. Service was fast and friendly. 12 year old wanted to try the Sea Bass and loved that it was the whole fish. I had a taste; fish very fresh.

The food was delicious. the service was ok. My problem ...the place was so noisy. If I was in the area, I would go again....maybe in the middle of the week for lunch. The food was very good..everything we ordered tasted great.

The appetizers served ahead of the meal were a meal in itself. We had an assortment of skewered meats, rice and salads that were all fresh tasting and pleasing to the eye. There server was helpful in making our selections.

I have been going to the Eglinton location since my father took me as a child, the lamb melts in your mouth and the baba is wonderful. Can't forget the saffron rice. Now the service on the other hand is pretty brutal, snotty attitudes, no attention, plates just dropped in front of you. But my guess is they get away... More

I am of Syrian descent and my family has been going to Jerusalem on Eglinton since my childhood. Even though I no longer live in Toronto, I have been known to make a special journey to Jerusalem just to satisfy a craving. I have noticed that several negative reviews on Tripadvisor relate to another location of the restaurant, and I... More
