Middle of the road...

Overall, it was ok. The buffet is pretty decent. Good variety of food. Belly dancing is ok. I'm not in a huge rush to return but I don't regret eating here either.

Absolutely a horrible experience. We called in to make a reservation and while doing so we were informed about the groupon available for dining. We purchased the groupon and then made reservations at the North York location. We double checked with the lady on the phone to make sure the groupon would work at this location , she confirmed that... More

Yes, when I spoke to the manager (owner I think), I didn't find him very engaging, but otherwise, for a middle eastern buffet, the food and the general dining experience were both exceptional. It can be noisey as it was this weekend evening (understandable), but the selection and quality of food were both impressive, and wait staff helpful and had... More

For me 5 stars at a buffet would be high quality food at every corner. Brazilian steakhouses usually get 5 stars from me (Texas de Brazil in Las Vegas, Rei do gado in San Diego), while they rotate choice cuts of meat, their buffets alone is how I'm comparing Jerusalem Restaurant to. This place was a solid 4. Beet salad... More

Jerusalem specializes in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. The food is Ok for me except the fish. I went there with friends. When we had dinner there was a belly dancer show. After the show one man played instrument and the other man sang. We all enjoyed its casual atmosphere. Even some clients danced with the singing. This is the... More

First of all the rate charged for buffer is $28++ for an adult on Saturday because there is belly dancer who does a show for half an hour. Belly dancer was ok. There is 'live band' of 2 guys, one singing and one playing some instrument. Music was so loud and so bad, it gave us all (party of 8)... More

Simply put, I expected more from the Jerusalem Restaurant. Six of us went there for a business lunch. They have no menus as their offering is strictly buffet. Most buffets serve food that's been siting around for hours, it gets dried out, over-cooked, tasteless. The Jerusalem's buffet has a lot to offer, but if you are a meat eater, you... More
