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.

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 went with my family and cousins last week. My nine year old son could not finish his plate. The waiter came and told us if we liked the food or not. I said, we liked the food he said then why there are food left in the plate. I apologized and said that my son took some extra and... 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

Went here for lunch the other day with a friend who is a 'regular' there. He told me it was good but I was surprised at just how good! The eggplant is fantastic! We also got chicken skewers which were great. I had the Maza plate (pictured) and it was good to the last bite. I also recommend the lentil... More

Excellent quailty and service. Very traditional atmosphere. Palestinian food at its best. Paid parking at the side street. The owner Romeo has been here for decades. He is very hospitable and has a great smile. Please try his restaurant, at least once...

We dine out a lot and as my wife commented, this was one of the nicest meals we have ever had out. Went for a family birthday celebration on the recommendation of a family member. There were 13 of us. Greeted warmly and the family table had been set aside. From the service, which was friendly, efficient and accommodating, to... More
