This is an unassuming place with a market attached next door right off Route 192, a few miles east of I-4. We had very tasty platters of lamb shank and kebab combination, 3 different kebabs including kafta. Platters included rice, salad, different sauces and warm pita bread. Platters were in the $15-17 range. They accepted a Restaurant.com coupon. A very... More

At first, the welcoming party going in was cold. When the food we ordered came out, the meats where extremely dry and over spiced. The rice did not appear to be fresh. The falafel where hard as a rock. When the bill arrived, we paid, but did not feel it was worth the experience.

We went there for lunch and had the Shish tawook lunch platter and a falafel sandwich. Both were good. I thought the Shish Tawook (chicken skewers) were better than the falafel sandwich but we enjoyed both. All in all, a decent lunch for two came to $24.00 including tax and tip.

We ordered take out from Jerusalem, and we were shown our food before we left the store. We ordered shawerma (it was delicious!), an appetizer platter (grape leaves, falafel, baba ganoush, etc.) and a few other entree items. We were all very pleased. They also have a nice dessert collection -- kenafi, basbousa, etc. This is a great place to... More

The restaurant is locally owned. The owners are from Palestine. I abhor chains so this was a welcome discovery. The shawarma was very good. Friendly, efficient wait staff. Appears to attract a lot of locals in this very touristy area. Middle Eastern grocery is attached. Another great find. They have another store in the Dr. Philips area.

Visited this restaurant while staying in Kissemme for a conference. Great food and ambiance. One of the best mid-eastern restaurants in the area.

We ordered the Shawerma, Shish Tawook, Kafta and Grape Leaves. Everything was fresh and perfectly spiced. Freshest pita I have ever had.

My wife, 19 month year old daughter and I were in Orlando on holiday from London. After eating quite a few local restaurants we were both really craving a middle eastern food (Halal). We found this place the day before we were leaving and after eating there we were both gutted we didn't search for it earlier. We went on... More

I would have given this place better rating if they had any customer service. They dont even try talking to you so you can learn more about the food and make better choices. they dont recommend anything and not friendly at all. i would not go back because many other resturants with great food and great service around.

Visiting Orlando and if you like Middle East food, stop and eat at Jersualem. The food was very good, reasonably priced and service was good. The veggie stuffed grape leaves were "wonderful". Really enjoyed the food.
