I've been coming to Little Jerusalem with family and friends for the past 4 years and can't tell enough people about it. Everything on the menu consisting of potatoes, fried rice, salad, lamb, chicken, beef and hummus is exceptional . An unassuming family friendly place to have a delicious lunch or dinner cooked by Abraham the owner. A must stop... More

After relaxing day on the French side, we craved some shawarma, we found the best at Little Juersalem.

Funny and friendly staff made the visit even more enjoyable. Young and... More

Not sure who would write a bad review about this restaurant, as we have had nothing but great food every time we visited. And we have been eating there for the last five years.

We ate here three years ago and we're so impressed by the quality of the food. The shawarma was incredible and the owner/chef was so personable making sure we were happy with everything. When we planned our trip this year, one of the first things I checked was if this restaurant was still here-- I was not at all surprised... More

I am frequent visitor to Little Jerusalem. The Chicken shawarma is the BEST anywhere. I crave it! The price and quality are top notch for a simple Mom and Pop Shawarma place. I highly recommend. Soc

Another great meal prepared by Abe! His shwarma is really flavorful and there is plenty of it all at reasonable prices. I will always stop here while on island.
