A great little restaurant with great food. The energetic host (whom I assume is the owner) seats you, takes your order, helps prepare the food, serves the food, and in his spare time works on his stained glass art work in the back which adorns the walls of the restaurant. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We went in on a pass-by heading to a show. It was 5:00 and we were the only partons in the restaurant. We are new to Lebanese food and I was worried about the spices..but what a great surprise. The owner/waiter was fast and pleasant and the appetizers (Lentil soup) were a lovely start. Each of the four of us... More

Just stopped by Jericho's for a lunch meeting. Perfect! The fresh Lebanese cuisine is perfect for those of us wanting to watch our carbs or gluten (many veggie/salad and meat/protein combos) so we can still have a super tasty lunch. The ambiance and service as always is cheerful, super-friendly and the art on the walls gives the place that special... More

I look for two things in a restaurant: great food and a wonderful ambience. Jericho provides both. Tonight we both had the kafta plates: the meat was tender and deliciously spiced, the hummous was wonderful, and the salad fresh with mint and other herbs. The wine is inexpensive but good. And the ambience! The owner's colourful paintings cover the walls... More

Have been to this restaurant several times and the food is always good. I tried the Labneh and I was amazed. The owner is a very nice man who works hard. The glass murals in the restaurant were made by him. He's a very talented man. His restaurant is in quote " his passion ". He has been in business... More

Not sure which we enjoyed more - the delightful food or the colorful art that covered every wall. We went there on a whim as we were walking by for a snack, and ended up having a full meal at a very reasonable cost. Both meals came with one of the best homus dishes that we've tasted, and were quite... More

I went with my brother and sister-in-law. The server was so blase. The food was ok. I ordered a kafta sandwich. The meat was good but the sandwich had no sauce making it taste very dry. The side salad was mediocre. He didn't come back to ask how the food was or to refill our water glasses. I'd go back... More

Raouf Omar is a genius. The Palastinian food is without par. The kafta is to die for. The flavors just explode with every bite. If you have to eat arab food, (and believe me, you do) this is the place to go. Not one thing one the menu will let you down.

A friend and I ate lunch here in mid week and had a great meal. Owner/server was friendly and provided good service despite the busy noon hour rush and being alone in the restaurant ( for some unknown reason). Fresh, authentic and flavourful food filled our plate, and the House Special Platter was good value at $12.95 a plate. The... More

A very popular local restaurant for the many dishes we have tried over the years are excellent in preparation and quality, especially tasty as Middle East dishes should be, and warm and attentive service from the hard working owner. The owner is also a renowned artist and author, his artwork adorns the walls and ceiling.

Thank Daniel C
