This is the best Falafel in Israel

No doubt that this is the best Falafel in Israel. First you are coming in they are giving you one ball as a tester dip with excellent tahiny . And then comes the Falafel it self. The way they are feeling the pitta is very unique, and the tahiny in between and on the top. Amazing. The service, so... read more

After snagging a parking spot, we came here expecting a lot, given the great reviews so far. We were not disappointed. The service was great. While we waited, we were given a falafel to eat gratis. I really can't say enough good things about this little restaurant. Go experience falafel excellence for yourself.

Tasty Falafel balls, bit soft than should be. Review is on the Carmelia branch of this chain. As mentioned - overpriced. All the falafel places in Haifa are at the same range of price. In other cities it's possible to find the same thing at almost half price.

We were caught in a windy rainstorm in Haifa and thankfully were able to find this little falafel spot during lunchtime. I walked in, dripping with rain and probably looking very miserable and hungry and the owner was kind enough to give me a fresh, hot bite of falafel. That's all it took to convince us that we needed more... More

A place to eat slowly a very good Falafel in an interesting area of old Haifa. You'll alaways find there other people, Jews and local Arabs. Good neighbours, good friends living together. Wonderful atmosphere. You can have oils and extra Tehina for the Falafel, enjoying your time.
