Probably best Falafel in Haifa

Do not expect a special restaurant, since this is chip and simple place. Great test with original homemade Thina. Undoubtedly worth a stop if you occur in downtown Haifa. Better to avoid around noon since loaded with students from nearby schools.

Considered one of the best two Falafel places in Haifa and one of the best in Israel. Justifiably so. Dig in and enjoy!

Everyone we asked in Haifa about where to go for a good falafel said Falafel Ha Ezkenim. It was worth the walk and search through side streets. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the people inside, both customers and staff, are all smiles. You are welcomed with a falafel ball with tahina as soon as you enter,... More

I think that here you can have one of the best falafel in Haifa but guys it's not a restaurant. It's even not a bar, just a place with a great and delicious falafel :)

We were on a mission to find this felafel place and somehow managed to get very lost but were directed by several friendly locals. By the time we found it we'd worked up an appetite and were delighted to try the sample felafels offered to us. I only had a half size which was plenty but now that I'm back... More
