I specifically searched for this place since I saw it's the No.1 eating place in Haifa. I was not impressed with the falafel. It's not bad, but it isn't anything special. It was also a bit too oily. You have to stand and eat, because there's no room or chairs and it's right by a street, so cars... read more

You can have Falafel. Only Falafel. In a Pitta bread or a small paper bag, it is one of the beast Falefel you can find in Israel. The salad bar is moderate, but the salads are fresh. The Tahini is also great. However, parking in the area is an issue, and there are almost nowhere to seat, so probably you'll... More

This is the best felafel in Haifa, I eat there for many years and they never fail. The Felafel balls are very tasty, the Thina sous is just amazing, thick and sour, the pita brad is tasty, fresh and does not drip. They have only 3 types of salads: Cucumber & Tomato, Cabbage , pickles, Enough for diversity, but do... More

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 welcoming,... 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.
