Terrible management- in fact, I wouldn't even call it that. Had take out a few times and dealt with rude staff but kept giving it another chance because I like to support local and family- run businesses. Well don't kid yourself- this isn't run like a family business who cares about its clientele. I walked in through the door at... More

Friendly family run business. Fantastic buffet. The take out counter has delicious shawarma, falafel and salads. Everything is fresh and tastes like more :). This restaurant is my #1 go to place when I am in Toronto.

If you like Middle Eastern food, try the Jerusalem on Eglinton near Bathurst. I've been eating there for 35 years. Moderate prices and consistently good food: mains like kebobs and appetizers like humus. The luncheon specials are great. The atmosphere is fine. You won't be disappointed.

A very good selection of meat, fruit and vegetables. Fresh and delicious. Huge dining area, good space between tables and helpful staff [for a buffet]. Will visit again

Not really my favourite. The food is not that great, but the service is decent and I liked that they have a belly dancer coming in to perform to add to the ambience.

I've been here a million times, I've rented the rooms for parties and the wait staff is very courteous. I don't know why people bash this place. Get of your stupid high horse and come down and enjoy good home style cooking. Be nice and people will be nice back. Yupees not welcome.

My daughter and her boyfriend took me to this restaurant for the supper buffet as we had previously had take out chicken shawarma which was delicious. We got there around 7:00 p.m. and were immediately greeted and taken to a nice table. The restaurant was about 1/3 full and everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves. Our waiter was very pleasant... More
