We found this place online and thought we would try it not realizing that there is a la carte, takeout, and buffet. The buffet was $26 pp with kids over 5 or so half price. I was really leery as normally I don't spend that much on a buffet, especially with 4 kids in tow. However, I was really pleased... More

A fair sized restaurant which could use an update with its decor. The buffet of middle eastern food is decent enough. A good choice in salads and main dishes including fish, meats and vegetables. I'm on the fence about whether I would consider going back to this restaurant again. The food was ok but not great.

I recently tried the take-out for the first time and it was a HUGE disappointment. The Shawarmas (Chicken & Beef) were bland and just not good, the baba ganoush tasted like a smokey-watered down version of the real thing, and the tabbouleh was way too sour and not fresh. Everything pretty much just tasted like it looked, as if it... More

I love the idea of a non-Asian all you can eat restaurant, and after reading great reviews on yelp and dine . to - we decided to try Jerusalem. The food was mediocre. Not a lot of variety. The falafel was super dry and the hummus wasn't the consistency it is at good middle eastern restaurants. The soup was too... More

Whenever we find ourselves along Sheppard Avenue East between Bayview & Don Mills Road, the possibility of stopping in at the Jerusalem Restaurant a few blocks north up Leslie Street comes to mind as it is one of our favourites for take-out. They have the best Chicken Shawerma Sandwiches around, the garlic bread (baked medium pita actually) is crisp &... More

I was at a CPS-ECP meeting here along with having dinner afterwards. The buffet style was nice as you got to try a bit of everything. The selection of hot items was very good. They had Roast Beef which required us to call somebody over to carve as we waited to see if anybody would notice. Cold section was good... More

Middle Eastern Buffet that delivers fresh food with great variety. Their hot meat dishes and seafood dishes are tasty and a reason to come back for. There is falafel, lamb, chicken and kabobs, Rice dishes and fish dishes, traditional dishes, salad and cold appetizers. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. The pita bread is warm and brought fresh... More

Excellent! Excellent food. Buffet, with different foods. Lamb, mussels, calamari, roast beef, different types of salads. All great food. They have a belly dancer that comes and dances every 20 minutes. Food is fresh, if have a party of 4 or more, call ahead of time. Recommended!

I went to this buffet restaurant with 3 friends. The restaurant is dated but has a nice flare of the middle east. White linen table cloth, mid Eastern art, and skylight adds to the experience. The dining room is very big, but buffet area was rather small compared to other buffet establishments. The food was not labeled well so I... More
