“Ridiculously good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I have now been back 3 times in the past week to have their Gyros, they are truly rdiculously good! Far and away the best I have ever had, and I have had alot of them. The owner and his wife (I think) work the counter and are very nice. ENJOY :-)

“Simply Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Ate dinner here last night after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Was amazed at the quality and quantity of food we got. The owners were also super friendly and had a great time chatting with them. I eat this type of food weekly from some of the best food carts in Manhattan and this is ten times better. Make sure you come here!!!

“Trip Advisor reviews lived up to our expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We read about this little place on Trip Advisor so our friends and my husband and I looked for it while in St. Maarten. One would nearly have to look for it because it isn't easy to find, even on the main street! But we were not disappointed! Abraham, the chef, could apparently tell we were new to middle eastern cuisine so he chose the menu items for us and what a great job he did! I had the mixed shwarma (chicken and lamb) on hummus with a salad. Definitely the best $10 meal I had all week! So full of flavor and the meat melted in your mouth it was so tender! My husband and friend had the shwarma over rice, another friend had the shwarma sandwich. It was all delicious! Abraham and his wife were most gracious and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal on a warm sunny day on their patio. We would definitely go back to this place for a wonderful inexpensive meal.

“You'll never be disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I've had close to everything on the menu they have to offer! Everything was amazing, full of flavour and very filling. My all time favorite is the Spaghetti Shwarma, it may sound out of the ordinary and in fact it is, the best ever and only one ever, no one can compare in price, taste and presentation. Great for people on a budget, but it's not your usual " on a budget" meal, it's a 5 star meal and service with a price you won't believe! This is a place you can't miss, as a local and a tourist! I love everything about this place and I know all that come will too!

“Best home cooked meal on the planet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We happened upon Little Jerusalem by chance and were delighted by the amazing food, nice people and reasonable prices. The lamb burger was incredible and the chicken shwarma warmed my heart! The food was like a home cooked meal and we felt so welcomed. We went back almost everyday of our trip and can't wait to visit St. Maarten again to have another lamb burger! Unbeatable value, too - the prices were great for such delicious food (especially compared to other restaurants on the island). We miss you Little Jerusalem!
