I expected 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... read 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

We went for lunch which is considerably cheaper than dinner but at midday there is no entertainment such as live music or belly dancers. I'd say that for a buffet the quality of the food is better than average. Some meat and fish as well as vegetable dishes to choose from. Lot's of cold salads. Perhaps the selection is not... More

Overall the food was good. Nothing special just a good variety of dishes. The belly dancer show was entertaining but not worth the price for the buffet. If you are looking to really eat til you bust there's lots of options here and you might get your dollars worth.

I'm not a very fussy eater and I like trying different cuisines and see what tickles my fancy, but this place almost had me permanently turned off from Middle-Eastern/Mediterranean food. I had heard a lot about this place, and decided to go with a friend. We opted for the buffet and we realised what a waste of money it was... More

I went there after reading reviews here and other places but I must say all the positive reviews has cost me close to 100$ for low quality food. I went to Mississauga location and will never ever go back or recommend anyone. Food quality is extremely pathetic and I could easy smell all the items in buffet were minimum few... More

My co-worker and i stopped into the takeout portion of the restaurant. The last time i had a chicken shawarma sandwich here was probably 5 years ago. The chef was the same guy with the grey hair and moustache. But the food was definitely not the same. I think I've been spoiled by Me Va Me chicken sharwarma sandwiches. Jerusalem's... More

This restaurant offers buffet style Middle Eastern food. . At first you are overwhelmed with the big choice of , chicken, fish vegetables and grains. There is also a large choice of cold foods and salads and of course desserts. While the choice is great the flavour is not. Everything is fresh but everything lacks flavour. I guess that is... More

I don't normally like buffets but the lunch I had at the Jerusalem restaurant was very good. Both my daughter and I enjoyed everything we had here. There is a great assortment of middle eastern dishes and it was great to sample dishes I would not normally try. The orzo and lamb was great as well as the falafel and... More

The lamb and the variety of sauces to have it with are great. Not to mention the tabuli salad. One of the few buffets that has decent food
