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.

The food here is all fresh, and very delicious. Ann Arborites love the place. The fatoush salad with baked pita strips, hummus, and beef kabob sandwich are my favorites. They do a robust carryout business and you can order ahead by phone or online. If you love Mediterranean food, you won't want to miss Jerusalem Garden!

My daughter and I walked here from Michigan stadium and we are so glad we did. She loved the chicken kabobs and rice. I had a schwarma sand which that was right on the money!

Service was very good, new location is very contemporary and nice.

Falafel too spicy....actually everything spicy except French fries. Pita store bought, but tasted good, it was the very thin kind. Kids... More

Can't fault this restaurant. Good food and good service. And reasonably priced too. Had the Falafal Plate for lunch - my usual choice when eating Middle Eastern. The Falafal was done well - not at all greasy - which you sometimes get in restaurants who don't keep their oil hot enough. Also had quite a bit of heat to them... More

Excellent Middle Eastern restaurant. The food was great- delicious, hot food hot and cold food cold. Generous portions- we loved it. And the value is almost too good. This is a better than a hidden gem. We tried several items- since there were 11 of us and even the children loved the food. The only thing better than the food... More
