Went here on a suggestion from a friend. Blown away by some simply wonderful Mediterranean food. I had the Shawarma combo and my wife had a Falafel. Both were great. The Shawarma combo came with a little side salad and potato salad, both which were surprisingly good while the Shawarma was an absolute sea of flavors. The owner was friendly and very interested in our enjoyment of his food. This was my first introduction to Shawarma and I cannot believe that it could get any better. Very highly recommended!!

What else can I say, if you like middle eastern food, you will absolutely love this place. I should have come sooner, I waited until our last hours on the island to try Little Jerusalem. A sad, sad mistake. The owner is so friendly and he makes the best BBQ lamb on the planet. The other plates are as delicious, no doubt. Dont do like me, go there multiple times!!!

We found this restaurant on a non beach day.We were looking for something different and this fit the bill.It is definitely different from the high end places on the island,but you can't beat the quality of the food.OMG there was enough so you could easily feed two.It was very authentic and very good.The owner and chief cook couldn't have been more accomodatng.The beer was ice cold.and at $30 for two very reasonable.

My sweetheart and I ate at Little Jerusalem tonight as a recommendation from a local resident of the island. We were extremely satisfied with the meal and the service. We each had the combo...shawarma sandwich. It was tasty and seasoned to perfection. All of the seasonings complimented each other, none overpowering the other. Simply delicious. We will definitely visit again before we leave the island. The cook came out and was chatting with us. He enjoyed watching us enjoy his cooking. He brought out potatoes (nice and hot...just cooked) that we didn't even order. The potatoes had a gravy that was amazing. We ate all of that too. The price was very reasonable, too.

Ordered the plates (not the sandwich) and the meal was excellent. Hot, fresh, and spiced just right. Best bargain we found on the island. Very large portions. Wife and i had roughly half left over for lunch the next day. Extremely nice owners. Service is a little slow but the food is cooked to order with passion. Pleasant experience.
