I had the lamb shawarma...it was delicious...well seasoned, and properly cooked. The Mediterranean-style salad (fine chopped) was well seasoned, pitta breads were perfect, as was the hummus. Turkish coffee could have done with a little more cardamom, and be sweetened with rock sugar, but that...More

I'm not typically a fan on Mediterranean cooking, but I'll make an exception for this place. I had the lamb, and would recommend it to others.

Authentic Mediterranean. Fresh made hummus, fresh mozzarella bacon wrapped dates. Then the special mixed kabobs. What a great meal, way more than the three of us could finish. Service was spot on, quick and professional. Outdoor dining in November can sometimes work and it did...More

I’ve been going to Jerusalem Garden since 2004. I’ve tried most everything, but the veg platter is the very best. They have the best falafel in Asheville. They just do. Add two pieces to your order if you like falafel. It only comes with two...More
