Chicken and lamb mix, like a traditional shawarma, but 10 times better. The meat was fresh and you could taste the difference. Pull up a chair, light up a cigar and have a beer, good food takes a while to make and soooo worth the wait! Ohh and cheap, it costs so little to eat here.

I'm a frequent visitor every month to this place and my husband and I always look forward to seeing Mr. Abraham and family as well as staff! Always feel welcomed and like catching up with familiar friends. The shwarmas are tasty and it's fun choosing a different one to try. You get your money's worth!

We decided to stop and try this famous place and to be honest was pleasantly surprised. Although its not a shawarma as such the quality and taste of the food was superb. Also very friendly all around and would definitely make me go back for more whe in search for a quick bite to eat at very good prices.

There are few places you can walk up to eat and the owner says "I will make you something special" like your the only one in the place. Great fresh fool and a great price makes this place a 5 out of 5 stars for a good home cooked feel and meal all in one! You haven't fully experience St... More

I've been coming to Little Jerusalem with family and friends for the past 4 years and can't tell enough people about it. Everything on the menu consisting of potatoes, fried rice, salad, lamb, chicken, beef and hummus is exceptional . An unassuming family friendly place to have a delicious lunch or dinner cooked by Abraham the owner. A must stop... More

After relaxing day on the French side, we craved some shawarma, we found the best at Little Juersalem. Special Mix Platter had everything (potatoes, fried rice, salad, lamb, chicken, beef, hummus) and enough for three people. We ate our fill and had enough left over to take home. Funny and friendly staff made the visit even more enjoyable. Young and... More

Not sure who would write a bad review about this restaurant, as we have had nothing but great food every time we visited. And we have been eating there for the last five years. Had a wonderful shawarma today, best in my opinion on the island. Abraham, the owner, is a kind man who genuinely cares about his food and... More
