We visited this eatery for lunch. The atmosphere was welcoming with ethnic folk music setting the mood. Our waitress was helpful answering all our questions while making helpful suggestions. The food was delicious and plentiful. The lamb was extremely tasty as were the grape leaves, babaganush and hummus. The falafel was a pleasant surprise and should be tasted. Excellent food... More

The atmosphere here is very relaxed and family-like. The food is the star. It is simply the best Middle Eastern food in the area. SO tasty, fresh, and well made.

We went here for cappuccinos and baklava one afternoon, service was slow and the cappuccinos we received were more like cafe lates with watery foam on top. On top of that, the whole time we were there, the manager was accusing the waitress of stealing cash from the register (awkward!). We didn't try the food here, but the service was... More

Nice reasonably priced place to stop for a meal. If you're unfamiliar with this type of cuisine just get a kabob platter and share it with someone (or take the leftovers).

Just had lunch here with the family. The food was amazing I have been searching for a new place like this since I moved to the Co Springs area and this place is amazing. Makes all the places I used to go for this type of food seem terrible.

At at the Heart of Jerusalem, and liked the food so well, we came back and ate there again the next day. The middle eastern cuisine is tasty and abundant. The service was pretty good one day and pretty terrible the next. They could really stand to renovate the inside, as the ambience leaves a lot to be desired, but... More

Both my husband and I were very impressed with the flavors! Everything was excellent, and the service was friendly and attentive. We had a lovely lunch and took home leftovers to enjoy later. The prices were very reasonable.

10/22/16. Mgt would not allow me to redeem my Gazette Deal of the Day voucher. Said I needed a printed copy of the voucher. Would not honor the digital redemption voucher on my phone, that was valid.

The food is so good here that my husband and I made moaning noises as we ate! I ordered their ULTIMATE PLATTER and my husband ordered the FALAFL PLATTER. Best falafel we've ever eaten. Best hummus we've ever eaten. The huge amount of meat that came with the Ultimate, was so incredibly tasty! I took the left overs back to... More
