We visit on Sunday and have gotten their homemade soup such as mushroom barley which is very good. Also, you can get a platter which consists of salmon and two other items. There are also falafels, salads of different types, pizza (which seems to be a hit here), sushi, and desserts. There are also... read more

I love the food at Jerusalem West. It's fresh and delicious. There is a tremendous variety. The Israeli offerings are plentiful and authentic tasting. I am never disappointed with the food. They only serve vegetarian and fish options (including sushi). The dining area is quite unpleasant and needs redesign and updating, thorough cleaning and light! Their catering is really wonderful...

Jerusalem has been around a long time. It's a husband and wife operation serving Middle Eastern and dairy foods. Choices range from sushi to different salmon offerings to falafel to pizza. There's no wait staff, so you can't mind working your way down the food line. Tables are a bit crammed together but you won't have a problem getting a... More

Jerusalem is a mainstay in Livingston. The food is always good. While I am not a vegetarian, there are plenty of choices for me including sushi, pizza, and a great selection of Mediterranean foods. If you like to sample, try a combination platter. You get three different foods and it's a great way to pick and choose your favorites. The... More

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 prepared to wait, it's busy... More

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
