Jerusalem's has attracted a faithful clientele that extends throughout the Twin Cities. Customers have called owner Sal Azem from every part of the country, in hopes of obtaining some of their favorite Middle Eastern specialties. The secret of Jerusalem's success lies in the quality of its ingredients, its own original recipes, its authentic blends of herbs and spices, and its "from scratch" approach to preparations. The restaurant's dark lighting and exotic decor creates a romantic atmosphere designed to help you relax and unwind during your meal. And on weekends, there's live belly dancing to further enliven your dining experience. Many customers come to Jerusalem's for the tender and spicy lamb and chicken curry. Jerusalem's eggplant-based baba ganouj is second to none, their fried falafel is light and flavorful, their minty tabouli is a work of art, and all three of their soups are legendary. And the desserts! The baklava and their own fabulous "krima" (Jerusalem's unique filio creation filled with the most wonderfully rich-tasting sweet custard) are not to be missed. At Jerusalem's we strive to bring you a fine and satisfying meal. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The food is delicious and service was excellent. We have been to the Jerusalem restaurant 3 times now and will continue to return! Our only suggestion is to do something different with the lighting in the corner area ... too bright! Mar 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always great. Host says best falafel in Midwest. I agree. So good.We had the Meat Platter and 2 sides. All good and 2 boxes of left overs will be 3 or 4 more meals. This place is owned and operated by Mom, Dad, and the kids. And they care about every detail. Yes. I love their food and their service. And their low prices too. Jan 18, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Food was fantastic. Service was great. The only problem we had was the low level of lighting: we had problems reading the menu and seeing the food we were eating. Otherwise it was great! Nov 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Out of lamb - big for a Mideastern restaurant Nov 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The food is awesome and the atmosphere is authentic. Our waitress was knowledgeable about what was fresh or just coming out of the oven. She even gave us an extra dessert since we raved about the custard dessert! Oct 27, 2014
