“Excellent price/quality ratio”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

One of the best restaurants in East Jerusalem near the Damascus Gate (5-10 minutes). It is a family run business, established 45 years ago. They glad to here absolutely for all guests.
Helpful and friendly staff. Middle Eastern cuisine is offered in a classic Interior. Tremendous atmosphere.
Very tasty food, fresh and creative cuisine, big portions, variety of salads and appetizers, good Israeli wine.
Excellent price/quality ratio. Many thanks to Walid and Zuhair for the warm welcome. If I am in Jerusalem again will definitely be back to this place.

“Really good local restaurant.”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The only reason Philadelphia doesn't get 5 stars is because it lacked atmosphere the evening we were in - it was very quiet, but perhaps not the restaurant's fault becasue we probably ate too early (7:30pm). We had a mezze and the roast lamb, all really good, with a decent bottle of Israeli red wine (c £27). Service was impeccable and they even threw in some delicious pastries for pudding.

A very good salads selection by a good fish and meat dishes in an oriental atmosphere and a permanent smile. If you want to feel the heart of east Jerusalem, but with western manner this is a place to eat. Honorable guest are frequently invited to this restaurent.

“The Best Food & atmosphere in jerusalem !!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Philadelphia Restaurant was the nicest place we ate in Jerusalem. The staff is amazing - really lovely people, so welcoming and generous. What they say about themselves on their website is no lie - they really do want their customers to have a homely and relaxing experience. This is the place that you have to visit if you are in East Jerusalem ,both western and oriental food were great. Prices are ver fair.So visiting philadelphia restaurant is a must !!!
P.S: you should ask for Basel who is the most professional guy in hospitality who is running the restaurant beside the amazing chef Zuhair.
