This is one of the best falafel I have tasted. Everything was super fresh. Fast and friendly service. I've lived in the area for years and eaten at the buffets, which is also wonderful, but I never noticed the take out area until recently. I can't believe I missed this delicious gem! This is the real deal! I can't stress... More

There is not a big variety but the food is great, the flavours are amazing and everything seems to be home made. The service is pretty good I got a very nice and helpful waitress during a business lunch and a terrible guy serving me and my family during the weekends. but aside of that enjoyed the food, the deserts...

We were in the area and my daughter's partner recommended that we meet here. I am not a huge fan of middle eastern food but found the food here was quite good. What put this place over the top though was the fatalistic service we received from our waiter Jacob who was extremely helpful with suggestions and very friendly. He... More

Very bad service, poor food quality and the cashier ripped me off. Even if it is Halal food, I prefer to go to a Canadian restaurant which is not Halal instead of this restaurant. Eating not Halal food in a Canadian restaurant is more Halal than paying these people.

Shawarmas used to be a popular lunch item for me since I worked across the street but they continually disappoint me with their poorly wrapped, stingy, dry shawarmas. I will not be returning nor will I recommend this establishment to my clients, or co-workers. Customer Service is always good minus emailing them to tell them your unhappy this goes no... More

We have been enjoying Jerusalem Restaurant's cuisine for a very long time, starting with when they were at Eglington Avenue W., later at Young and Steels Avenues, then at Finch and Leslie Avenues before moving at its current location. The Middle Eastern Cuisine is at its best to maintain consistent quality and taste that has made it popular with customers... More

I've been to the restaurant multiple times and it has its pros and cons. Servers: I've never had a "wow, fantastic" server, they've always been mediocre, slow to bring drinks, take plates away, they also don't seem very happy. Food: The food they have is delicious - I could live off of their bread, babaganouj and lentil soup it is... More
