Worst excuse for food of the Middle East they serve Mall Pita bread, very tough to screw up Hummus but they can do it! Nothing edible. I don't know how they even stay in business, horrible service. Tried it twice never ever again and I live in Mobile!

Unassuming strip mall location is hiding a great restaurant. My wife and I had our first date here so many years ago, and each time we return we leave impressed. The servers know the menu and the food. Between us we have eaten the entire menu and it is all top notch.

This is a nice restaurant and we had a pleasant lunch here but overall we all agreed that we had better middle eastern food at other restaurants across the Gulf Coast.

Small restaurant in a strip mall with good menu and very good Middle Eastern food. Spicy falafel, small delicious stuffed grape leaves, lentil soup are all great and the entrees we had were very good. Highly recommended!

A nice selection of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. The hummus has a great flavor, along with the tabbouleh. Try the appetizer platter and a kebab for the full experience.

There are a couple different Greek places in mobile and Jerusalem Cafe is the best! Started off our dinner with tasty hummus. I had the chicken pastry plate and as always, it was amazing. It is my favorite thing on them menu. Think of a Mediterranean chicken pot pie. Topping it with the cucumber sauce makes it. Served it up... More

One of my favorite restaurants serving authentic middle eastern cuisine. Perennial favorites on their menu for me, include their Lentil soup, Hummus served with or without lamb garnish and Pita bread, their Gyro's and Lamb shank when it is on the menu. Baklava and other sweet treats are my choice for dessert.

We have eaten here several times for lunch and a couple times for dinner, but their Sunday Brunch rules! Curry Chicken, lamb shanks, grape leaves, hummus, grilled veggies and baklava....these are only the highlights.

I have had several items on the menu, but the lamb shank is the best. If you get a chance, try the shank, the soup, the baklava and the Turkish coffee.... It's just the best!

I was impressed with the food and service. The food was different and very good. If you like trying something a little different I suggest this place. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch.
