Very happening place! I was there for a 50th birthday and had a great time! While I was eating belly dancers were coming around! You have to enjoy eating middle eastern food otherwise dont go there!

I have visited this restaurant in many occasions. The food is always fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is happy and calm. The servers are specially nice. My favourite is Cathy. A truly wonderful lady who makes it fun and enjoyable and you feel welcomed every time. Love it. Will be back. And will recommend it.

The worst Middle Eastern od I've ever eaten. The falafel was dry and old and the skewered chicken was dry. Never again.

A great neighbourhood place for me. Love the flavourful food. Romeo the owner is a great guy and I use it for catering parties too. Humus and kebabs great. No pretense. Fattoush salad awesome and siniye is greAt. Fresh and enjoyable! Not fancy.

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
