This has been our go to spot for years vacationing SXM. Aberaham the owner is always welcoming when entering his restaurant as well as his son. Shawarma is the best on island and served more than one can eat. Abe will give you a walk...through his menu and we have always stayed with the chicken and lamb combo. Aberaham is a true islander to SXM cooking the real deal Shawrma.More

The food here is so amazing!! Casual, outdoor atmosphere with resident cats (or maybe smart strays). We will go back for sure!

Wow! Can never look at shawarma the same way again... After trying the highly recommended Famous from Little Jerusalem my life has changed! Perfect mixture of flavors in your mouth! absolutely mouth watering! and then i went the next day and tried the special. Best...thing i ever did, and i thought it was never going to outdo the Famous but i don’t know what else to say besides just go and try everything on the menu! 🥙🥙🥙🔥🔥 P.S. Best sauce in the world, make sure you ask for extra saucee!! i believe they sell it seperately as well!More

Back again and the food is as amazing as ever. So glad they're now selling their famous shawarma sauce so we can take back home a taste of little jerusalem. As always the food is a great value and we WILL be back

We've been to St. Maarten many times, but somehow missed Little Jerusalem. That won't happen again. The food is awesome, the price is great, and the owner is terrific. Our last stop before the airport on Friday was there. What a perfect way to end...a perfect ten day vacation. Can wait to be back.More

We went to lunch at Little Jerusalem in SXM and give it 5s across the board. The owner was so friendly and helped show us what the favorites were to order. The food was amazing, huge portions, at an extremely low price, you can't beat...it! A great lunch place for anyone staying near Simpson Bay!More

We gave this place a try based largely on the reviews we saw on TA. Definitely an unpretentious place - you order from a window and, if you choose to eat in, sit at picnic tables. However, don't let the small size of the place...fool you because the flavors are HUGE. My only regret was that we didn't try this place until toward the end of our trip. Otherwise we would have definitely found a reason to eat here again.More

For my first visit, I can honestly say this was love at first bite. The food is absolutely amazing and I have to say these shawarma’s are the best I’ve ever had. And that comes from a lover of the cuisine. I promise you the...shawarma’s here will have a richer taste than any other you’ve had before. My personal favorite is the Buffalo, which has a bit of a kick to it. The owners are also very friendly. If you’re up for good food, pay them a visit. You won’t regret it!More

We live in St. Martin for half the year, and go to supper at Little Jerusalem really frequently. It's easily the best value on the entire island. The food is sooo delicious and the servings are very generous, yet the price is really affordable. Always...a smile and a friendly chat. Maybe we'll go tonite?More
