Best for Falafel & Israeli Cusine, Average Pizza

This Kosher restaurant is best for Falafel & Israeli Cuisine, but only has average Pizza. Truly excellent Falafel balls, just the right mix of spices. Their Tahini is also very good, not much Vinegar, which some places use to cover up staleness, so it shows it is fresh. If you go here on Sunday, be... read more

Been going here for years. Great kosher food and a really nice atmosphere! Line can move a little slow but it's worth the wait!

When our religious son from Israel visits, this is the place we go to for take-out and for eating in. The food is really good, and people can eat outside , weather permitting, or inside. There is a great variety of kosher foods, and everyone can easily find something that they like. There are plenty of counter people, but no... More

I've been going to this restaurant since I was little, and they were at their old location. The falafel slice is my husband's favorite - it is a hearty, filling meal. I'm partial to their Sicilian slice and their soups. Sushi is always a good choice, as is their Old Jerusalem platters if you want to try a variety of... More

For what it is, which is a kosher dairy/vegetarian cafeteria style restaurant, this place is terrific. A large selection of items and fast service. I eat here quite often and always am amazed with their creative "non-meat" slices of pizza they come up with given that they do not serve meat. Prices are also very reasonable, with two creative slices... More

This kosher pizzeria has good food and great salmon! Their Israeli salad is the best! Their sweet kugel is fabulous and their side dishes are delicious. The restaurant is small and you have to order at the counter as there is no wait staff. It can get a little hectic at times because seating is limited but it is a... More

In an area with few kosher or Israeli food options, Jerusalem is a decent restaurant. You can find Israeli products there. The humus and pita could be much better and the cafeteria style set up and lack of ambiance make take-out a preferred option.

Jerusalem West brought back memories of Jerusalem and its wonderful foods. So enjoyed the Mediterranean salad bar with all its fixings. The Japanese sushi bar was just ok but the kids really enjoyed the pizza and ravioli. A good time was had by all made more so by the smiling and efficient staff.

If you're looking for good kosher in the area, Jerusalem is a great pick. Seating is at a premium but food is better than average and you'll meet all your friends there :)

As long as you are not looking for ambiance or service, this restaurant is fine. The place is small and has a few wooden tables and you have to stand in line to choose your own food, but the selection is large and fresh. There are many salads, fish, pizza and pastas but no meat mainly due to it being... More
