Excellent!

Used them for our rehearsal dinner and everyone loved the food! The price was unbeatable, the meat and sides were all so good, and they were so responsive and easy. Only ordered about 5 days in advance for a meal for 40 people and had no issues.

Great food. Very affordable

Good food! They were flexible and very accommodating for us especially during the Covid year-height. We got married on November of 2020, it was a micro wedding. The BBQs tasted exceptional and the dip! Alaa and his team, did everything to make sure we enjoyed and properly fed. The food was DELICIOUS AND PLENTY!

Highly recommended

Jerusalem Shwarma has been the most amazing experience. The tasting was amazing, I had some food allergies and they went above and beyond to make sure that everything was safe for me to eat. Their food is absolutely amazing and I would recommend them to any bride looking for a stress free meal that is made with so much care.
