Well I have eaten Middle Eastern food from Texas to Israel & Egypt and many in between. I always seem to find a Middle Eastern restaurant in any town... its not the best I have ever had but its not the worst. We had the buffet on a Sunday afternoon. The chicken was delicious, but the hummus was terrible. Clean... More

You might think this is just a little hole in the wall, but don't pass it by! We went here with a group of 8 and even though this cafe is small, they were able to accommodate us with no problem. There were several other groups dining at the same time, but our food came fast and service was great!... More

We went there for dinner last night and as always, it was great. I read some of the reviews and was surprised that some didn't like it. To each his own, but the four of us enjoyed it. Good food and a nice waiter. We will be back!

Worst excuse for food of the Middle East they serve Mall Pita bread, very tough to screw up Hummus but they can do it! Nothing edible. I don't know how they even stay in business, horrible service. Tried it twice never ever again and I live in Mobile!

Unassuming strip mall location is hiding a great restaurant. My wife and I had our first date here so many years ago, and each time we return we leave impressed. The servers know the menu and the food. Between us we have eaten the entire menu and it is all top notch.

This is a nice restaurant and we had a pleasant lunch here but overall we all agreed that we had better middle eastern food at other restaurants across the Gulf Coast. It was the first restaurant of this type I have tried in Mobile and we were glad that we tried it but with the sheer number of restaurants in... More

Small restaurant in a strip mall with good menu and very good Middle Eastern food. Spicy falafel, small delicious stuffed grape leaves, lentil soup are all great and the entrees we had were very good. Highly recommended!

A nice selection of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. The hummus has a great flavor, along with the tabbouleh. Try the appetizer platter and a kebab for the full experience.

There are a couple different Greek places in mobile and Jerusalem Cafe is the best! Started off our dinner with tasty hummus. I had the chicken pastry plate and as always, it was amazing. It is my favorite thing on them menu. Think of a Mediterranean chicken pot pie. Topping it with the cucumber sauce makes it. Served it up... More

One of my favorite restaurants serving authentic middle eastern cuisine. Perennial favorites on their menu for me, include their Lentil soup, Hummus served with or without lamb garnish and Pita bread, their Gyro's and Lamb shank when it is on the menu. Baklava and other sweet treats are my choice for dessert.
