Typically quick friendly service at this mid sized middle eastern restaurant. Extensive menu offers middle eastern delights like felafel, hummus, baba ganoush, grilled eggplant, middle eastern salad, as well as heartier fare of lamb and so forth. The food is very good. They also have a liquor license. Highly recommended.

Jerusalem's authentic and flavourful Middle-Eastern menu and excellent quality-to-price ratio, make the restaurant a great choice for both lunch and dinner. In particular, the lentil soup, homemade humous, fattoush salad, and shish kebab, are all top-notch.

Four of us were here for lunch on a late Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was mostly empty. We ordered the lunch special for two and thought it would suffice for the four for us as two of us had a heavy breakfast in the morning. The special consists of three skewers of kababs, one each of chicken, lamb and beef.... More

Recommended by a friend, 2 of had lunch here last week. We both enjoyed the lamb burger in a pita along with a small salad. Mostly Mediterranean/middle East menu. The only criticism is the parking in the area. Not only is the street under construction, but in this part of the city free parking is almost non existent. The parking... More

Back in town for a golf holiday and always make it a point to dine at one of our favorite restaurants in Toronto. We love middle eastern food and there is no better place than Jerusalem. The place has been owned by the same family for probably 40+ years and has had the same chef for just about as long!!!... More

Just finished up a chicken sandwich from the takeout menu and at $6 it's got to be the best sandwich I have ever eaten. Solid piece of chicken breast marinated and topped with salad and tomatoes. Yum!! Will definitely return.

Staying in York-Crosstown

Neighbourhood Profile
York-Crosstown
York-Crosstown is a sleepy area of Toronto dotted gorgeously with hills and farmland, stately homes and parks. An affluent district in parts, the stately houses at Baby Point along Jane Street are especially breathtaking, and make for a lovely wander on a clear day. Parks are bountiful in York-Crosstown, which makes it a vibrant area for outdoor play and sports, providing a break from the hustle of Toronto's busy, jam-packed city center. For a little spice after a walk in the park, the Little Jamaica area of York sports cheap, authentic food from the Caribbean. This area is restful and more orientated towards outdoor activity and the exploration of nature.
