Great swarma! Abraham is a gem. We could have easily split this meal. Prices are reasonable. Everything we saw come out of the kitchen looked fantastic. I wouldn’t pass it up.

Great atmosphere, food is incredibly consistent over time and the chef is not only very friendly but top-notch. Definitely do not miss out on this gem.

My husband and I have visited St. Maarten several times and we do revisit some favorite restaurants, but also find new (to us) ones. Well tonight we tried Little Jerusalem! We both fell in love!! It’s a simple curbside open-air restaurant with a simple menu....More

Went out for quite some drinks, stopped here to grab some food. Delicious and big shoarma, garlic sauce was on point. Price is very reasonable as well! I'll definitely stop by here again! I want to mention that the owners were also very friendly!
