Nice reasonably priced place to stop for a meal. If you're unfamiliar with this type of cuisine just get a kabob platter and share it with someone (or take the leftovers).

Just had lunch here with the family. The food was amazing I have been searching for a new place like this since I moved to the Co Springs area and this place is amazing. Makes all the places I used to go for this type of food seem terrible.

At at the Heart of Jerusalem, and liked the food so well, we came back and ate there again the next day. The middle eastern cuisine is tasty and abundant. The service was pretty good one day and pretty terrible the next. They could really stand to renovate the inside, as the ambience leaves a lot to be desired, but... More

Both my husband and I were very impressed with the flavors! Everything was excellent, and the service was friendly and attentive. We had a lovely lunch and took home leftovers to enjoy later. The prices were very reasonable.

10/22/16. Mgt would not allow me to redeem my Gazette Deal of the Day voucher. Said I needed a printed copy of the voucher. Would not honor the digital redemption voucher on my phone, that was valid. I have used digital vouchers at this restaurant in the past, no problem. Nothing in the fine print says voucher needs to be... More

The food is so good here that my husband and I made moaning noises as we ate! I ordered their ULTIMATE PLATTER and my husband ordered the FALAFL PLATTER. Best falafel we've ever eaten. Best hummus we've ever eaten. The huge amount of meat that came with the Ultimate, was so incredibly tasty! I took the left overs back to... More

Our first visit was Spring '16 and we Really enjoyed the food. We are again in the area to visit relatives (home is La) and returned to Heart of Jerusalem for another tasty meal. The seasonings are absolutely wonderful, emphatic yet delicate. The seasonings are just special. It's not 'fine dining' - it's real food. Go. Enjoy!

We were briefly in Manitou Springs after hiking around the Garden of the Gods, while visiting Colorado. Needed lunch fast and this place seemed maybe possible (my wife has all sorts of gluten-free requirements and other dietary restrictions for Lupus). Instead they had several things that worked for her paleo-ish diet (mine too) and so we ordered. The inside is... More
