“Best Pure Sushi/Sashimi in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2010

This is the best sushi/sashimi in Boston for pure fish, but you need to know what to get. Also, the slices/portions are HUGE. They say they buy a cut above Fugakku, etc.

It is not necessarily the best for the more exotic rolls/dishes.

My favorite is the Best Sashimi Sampler for $22, which includes 3 extra large pieces of tuna, yellowtail, and salmon (Pacific).

The spicy edamame is also awesome (free with delivery, which only costs $2 and is generally very quick). Prices are very appropriate.

Located right behind Fugaku, but don't expect much atmosphere....this is a tiny place, maybe 10 tables...but much better food than Fugaku.

“A better alternative to Rami's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2010

I'm sure my title may incite some violent reactions, as some people are quite protective of Rami's (the other Kosher, Mediterranean restaurant in Coolidge Corner, for the uninitiated -- yes, Coolidge Corner can support two restaurants in this narrow genre). I was never much of a fan, due to Rami's short menu, complete lack of ambience, etc. Jerusalem Pita, on the other hand, is a full-service restaurant, with many great Israeli dishes on offer. I have liked everything I've tried there. If you have a felafel or schwarma itch, there are few places to scratch it this side of the Atlantic -- Jerusalem Pita is one of them!

“Tiny Place Big on Taste and Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2010

Wonderful, small, place to have a tasty Middle Eastern meal. The soups are fantastic, and the chicken shish kabab laffa enough for two people! Save room for dessert! Catering and take-out also.
