Old Jerusalem reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Meat is awful - dry and tough
    Dined on 7/10/2013
    I was so disappointed with my meal here that I won't be returning. I had the meat combo platter and everything was so dry and tough I couldn't believe it was served to me. The shish kebab and shwarma were chewy, almost inedible. I could only take a couple bites and left the rest on my plate. The lamb kefta kebab was slightly juicier and more flavorful, but not by much. I left most of my food on my plate and the server did not even ask me if there was a problem. This is a family-owned restaurant and I didn't want to complain so I bit my tongue. The dessert, a knafeh, was equally bad. The phyllo on top was soggy instead of crispy, and I saw them cut a piece from a tray to warm up. Who knows how long it had been sitting there.
