I’m happy to find vegan gluten free options. Everything is tasty and authentic. Waitress is knowledgeable about dietary restrictions and ingredients.

Taste of Jerusalem is a place to eat for the foot, not the ambiance. Also good for take out. Their shawarma in particular is worth coming back for. Just don't expect a big smile, or quick service (even if the place is empty) and be...More

Nothing fast food about this place. They prepared you food fresh and exactly like the menu stated. If the menu said marinaded, roasted lamb, the entree delivered just that. You could taste every bit of the menu description.

I had the vegetarian platter on my first visit and everything on it was great so I decided to try catering from them. I had a backyard 50th bday party and everyone loved the food. The kebabs (some where chicken some were lamb) were delicious,...More
