I went here for lunch with my family. The boys choose the chicken shawarma and I got the Kofta kebab. The lentil side soup was very delicious. The kebab came with rice and baba ghanoug (dip made with eggplants). The rice was fluffy and the meat very tasty. I loved the most the eggplant dip. If you like middle eastern... More

Great food-kabobs, hummus, etc., as you would expect, and you get to mix/match a variety of sides to customize your meal to your liking for certain main courses. I also really enjoy the rice pudding. JG used to be in a smaller location around the corner, but they've much improved their atmosphere with a more open dining area, good lighting... More

We' ve been faithful patrons of the Garden for over 20 years now, and we are happy to find that the food is the same in the new place as it was in their original cozy location. falafel sandwich, lamb kabob, hummus, baba ganoush, and my personal favor: quinoa tabouleh! Enjoy!

Still the best hummus and Falafel I have ever eaten. Nothing compares, though people do come close. There is just something special about JG. Fast, affordable and excellent!

I always look forward to eating their fattoush salad. In addition The majaddra with caramelized onions is delicious. While you're there you should always order at least one falafel. Also the lentil soup is like no other. Oh my gosh, I always eat sooo much when I go to Jerusalem Garden. Plus leftovers to take home.!

Stopped by for lunch on a sleepy Sunday. The service was slow, but the server friendly. The best dish was lentil soup which was served hot and flavorful. The chicken kabob was just ok, not particularly juicy, but not bad. Rice was so so, again, not overly flavorful. I suppose this is good enough for the student who is looking... More

This is a family-owned restaurant, run by the same family for over 30 years. Every thing on the menu is super-fresh. I've been eating here for years and have never had a bad meal. Falafel, gyros, schwarma, pita, tabouli, fatoosh, vegetarian or meat filled grape leaves. Awesome fresh lemonade, and home-made lentil soup served with a lemon to squeezein. And... More

Jerusalem Garden has been around for a long time but the new restaurant is very nice and modern. They have an open kitchen and bar seating around it. We have taken family here several times and they all loved it. This is a great place for delicious food at good prices. I love the chicken shawarma, the sides, and salads.... More

The food here is amazing, but, if you aren't familiar with this kind specific regional dining, don't worry! The staff are very friendly and informative, and even may give you a sample if you're struggling to imagine the flavour. This restaurant has a nice vibe, as well as good options, but does fill up during peak times.
