There are tons of places like this in the touristy areas of Israel. This one gets it right all the time. Good basic falafel or shwarma in a fresh wrap with equally fresh salads and other ingredients. Price is right.

Food here was pretty decent, no surprises here - it's Shawarma (Doner Kebab) in a Lafa (Iraqi Pita). The are is pretty nice.

Kind of like the Israeli version of Subway for falafel and shwarma - you tell them what to add to your sandwich and they add it. Tasty and very large if you get the laffa. Pita is more manageable and gets less soggy with too many ingredients. Hot sauce is really hot.

Has been consistently delicious for years. Just a little stand in the middle of Ben Yehuda street. Try a combo of the two... And on lafa bread.

A great kosher fast food selection. Between us we had a shawarma in Laffa, a schnitzel in pitta and a humus bowl. All were great and very large. Good price and buzzing experience for out if towners to take in the Jerusalem experience.

We ate here at least 3 times last week when we were in Jerusalem because both the food and service were really good. It's a no-fuss place and you can have whatever you want. Great falafel and lots of salad choices to go with it. The guys behind the counter are fun and helpful and it's good to sit outside... More

I tried several places and No question, this place had the best sharawrma. I went twice to the store on Ben Yehuda. Awesome. Beware of the other shawarma places that cut the meat off the spit earlier, then leave it on the grill. That makes the mean dry and hard. This place didn't do that-- they cut it off the... More

Shawama in Israel is everywhere. Moshiko's version is particularly delicious. It is cut a little thicker and flavored a lot better than many of the surrounding competitors. Portions are hugh, especially in laffa. It's kosher, so don't expect goat or lamb and don't go on Saturday daytime or Friday evening. But, go.

Best falafel stand in Jerusalem. Standing room only, serving up fresh falafels or salad boxes. There's tables in the square in front, if you're lucky enough to get a table, you can people watch as you eat your falafel. They have a handy sink too, to wash up after the messy tahini sauce!
