Great value for money. Extensive menu, all options are really good. We went there four times and had great food every single one. Falafel is very good, though hummus with lamb and fried eggplant were my favorites. Backlaba was a little disappointing. They don't serve liquor here.

Nice fresh food! I had the falafel plate which was great. Very cheap eats for Tamarindo. I also had the mint lemonade which was a little expensive but tasty.

If you really want to get a fresh middle east food culture experience this is the place for you. The place serves beautiful and generous plates full of color and flavour that you can't get anywhere else in the area! Keren and Isaac, who run the, place will make you feel like you are a guest in their own home.... More

Great grab and go lunch food! The chicken schnitzel falafel tasted like it came straight out of Israel!
