Good food, great price.

Why have Subway or McDonald's when you can have Mediterranean food for the same price. The House of Falafel has appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees with most items less than $8.

It's a good place to eat , with enough menu options and reasonable pricing . Nothing fancy . There is very little seating available and can get real tight to go around tables so carry out is the best option . The quantity they served is decent . Nothing too bad or nothing too great.

The Shawrma made from chicken or beef is my favorite. The platter has a lot of food with rice salad and 2 pitas

Servers delicious, authentic Mediterranean food with nice serving size. Reasonably priced items and friendly service. Its a small place, cozy but not a great ambiance.

Food was delicious and well-prepared. Decent-size portions. Environment just so-so in a strip mall environment.

Good reasonably priced Mediterranean food. We ate there twice while visiting the bay area and loved the food. I ate chicken shawarma which was great. My wife ordered chicken kobob and it was good too.

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is authentic and the menu extensive for such a small place. I had the beef kabob wrap for about 5 dollars. It was quite tasty and well prepared. Can't find anything wrong with this place and the food was quickly prepared.

I had felafel but it was cold and odd since it didn't taste like falafels that I had before. It is not a good place for ladies and it was not nice in terms of cleanness.

Joined my wife for a quick lunch and had a wonderful lamb shawerma, very large portion. Lamb was cooked and seasoned very well. Excellent meal and quite filling, very popular with the local silicon valley engineers.
