We found this place a few years back on our first trip to Asheville and fell in love with their food and atmosphere. This is our second trip to Asheville and the food was as delicious as we remembered. Make it a must visit if you love Mediterranean food.
Stopped in on a pretty busy Sunday afternoon and we were seated almost immediately. I had the lamb gyro and my wife had the fattoush salad with chicken. The lamb gyro was one of the best I'd had, we will be back!
We shared the lunch kebab meal, it was absolutely amazing. The food is absolutely delicious and the gluten free pitas are delicious. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone visiting town. If you are thinking of stopping by definitely do.
Fantastic. I had the lamb shank which fell off the bone, and was tender as butter. My wife had chicken kabobs which were very tasty. Sides were delicious. The cauliflower was a hit. Highly recommend.
Incredible presentation. Amazing flavor. Shak Shuk Kafta for brunch was epic. Way better than a chain restaurant, Jerusalem cafe has been here thirty years. Incredible Staff, wonderful food. On point traditional flavors. So glad we came.
