A mother's day hit.

The chicken shawarma, tabbouli, lentil soup, meat pie, and beef shish kabob were fantastic. The beef kafta kabob was pretty good but not great, and I didn't like how it looked. The service was very good. I think the waitstaff would appreciate a directional sign for the men's bathroom. :) We'll be... read more

Just visited Jerusalem Garden at their new location. Food is still excellent and now the setting is larger and more comfortable. Best meal in Ann Arbor for the money.

With better management this could be a 4 star. The new Location does look great. Hummus is the basis for lots of their food, but the hummus is bland, almost tasteless. I ordered an "ice tea", the waiter brought me a "pep si" (Pepsi). The waiter didn't repeat my order to verify it was understood. The waiter never stopped-back to... More

I am a regular customer at JG and love their food. A friend and myself went to their new location and the food quality went noticeably downhill. The fattoush salad, which normally has a lot of chopped veggies consisted of more lettuce than veggies and seriously lacked dressing. When I mentioned this to the waitress, she snapped at me, 'I've... More

Restaurant just moved a few hundred feet to Liberty street. New decor is lovely and there is much more room. Although plates didn't look big, portions were above average in size and superb in quality. Pistachio baklava was delicious!

I used to love this place, and tell everyone else how much I loved it too, but not anymore. Sorry my business is an inconvenience to you. I will happily take my dollars elsewhere. Your hostess was incredibly rude- didn't say hello, rolled her eyes and slammed menus and silverware on the table. When I called her out on her... More

People cut the line, we notified the waitress whom replied "do you want me to tell them that they should get back in line?" Our answer was yes. The waitress didn't do anything, not even following up on her words. Service needs improvement.

This place has falafel that I compare all other falafel to. No one has beaten it yet. Lentil soup is amazing as well.

I must say im a bit partial to jerusalem garden. The venue is clean and orderly but very simple and a bit noisy and crowded, at least in there current locale. (they been saying that they will move to a bigger place since the first time I went more than a year ago) All that aside I love to go... More

While in town on business, found this well reviewed restaurant not far from our conference.The public parking was right there so inspite of cold, we had a pleasant walk. Opened the door to a teeny foyer but the staff was able to get us seated immediately. If the hadn't been an opening I think we would have gone elsewhere as... More
