Can't beat it

Amazing place for falafels. And we were treated like close family. The half size was plenty. You can always go for another half if you're still hungry.

Delicious delicious delicious. Great friendly service. I LOVED this falafel place. I wish I were there right now. The full size is huge but go for it, it's worth it. I've never had pickles on falafel but they were good.

On a walking tour of Haifa and the old neighborhoods, our group stopped on a narrow street (what other kind are there in the old parts of the towns in Israel?) and our guide set before us a choice between two Falafel shops. Both had TripAdvisor stickers in the window, both had various award stickers also on display, so given... More

This is the place to eat Falafel. The most authentic arabic Falafel in the most authentic Arab's area in Haifa. Lovely atmosphere, nice owner, delicious salads and thina.

This small kiosk, a family business run today by the sons (Ha Zkenim in Hebrew means old people, i.e. the parents who founded this Falafel) is generating one of the best Falafel in Israel. They are polite smiling and provide excellent service. The only problem is parking. The shop is a very narrow alley that add to the atmosphere but... More

Drop in for a snack. I found half a falafel was enough. Tastey salad greens, picklish in flavour with falafel in tastey abundance. The shop was crowded and the patrons obviously enjoying the food.

Arguably the best falafel in Israel, and for good reason: great pita pockets, fresh salad, yummy pickles, crunchy and flavourful falafel balls, and the jewel in the crown: tangy, thick tahini sauce. Thank goodness there are no french fries or hummus or other distractions! The service is also super friendly.
