Always fresh, great taste. No bells and whistles. Simply excellent felafel. While you wait you'll be treated to felafels with tahini. The staff is very funny and inviting. Recommended !!!

It's been over 20 years and I never tire of this falafel place. I changed status, jobs, addresses - but would always remain loyal to this place. Always fresh, generous, tasty and not in any way less important - very friendly.

Best falafel in Haifa, and claimed to be the best in Israel. If in Haifa, definitely go there. It is tiny, most eat standing up, but don't pass on this experience and this food, considered to also be very healthy (pita, salad, lentile balls, spices, hummus, tahini) if you ignore the fact that the falafel itself is cooked in oil.

As soon as you arrive you get a friendly greeting and a falafal with tahini. Pita was big, full and tasty.

You cannot beat this place. You also can't miss it when it is open as it is always busy, especially around lunchtime. Filled with locals and tourists. It is a very basic place from a dining perspective but that is part of the authentic charm. The quality is all in the might felafel! They always great everyone with open arms... More
