Best hummus ever!

Across the street from the Fremont Hub. Kind of tucked away by Nation's Hamburgers. But the best quick Mediterranean restaurant around. The hummus is very good with warm pita bread. The falafels are crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. I love their Greek salad too. My husband likes... read more

Occasionally when I run out of ideas or places what or where to eat , this is a good place to visit. The tasty lentil soup and the kebab or shawarma plates are a good lunch or dinner choices. Add a sweat treat like the Sabarina or the kuneffe and you have a full tasty and affordable meal. I wish... More

Great place to eat in or cater. Kababs, falafel, all the fixings - everything is delicious. They are a great catering option too. Only wish they did not use so much plastic.. for sauces, cutlery etc.

There are several decent falafel places within about a 5 mile radius- but I always come back to this one. The falafel balls are perfect- not underdone and too soft- but not overdone and hard. A falafel pita sandwich is the ideal lunch, and that always tastes delicious here and just "OK" elsewhere. Delicious grilled meat plates as well. Owners... More

Worth going just for the hummus...but you'll enjoy the rest also. They are tucked away from the main road, but worth seeking for it.

We ordered Mudammas Fool and Falafel plate. Out of the two, I really liked the falafel balls. They were tiny balls but were crispy and packed with flavor. It is a no fancy place which is good for casual dinners. The food is also reasonably priced. The owner appeared very friendly, she also helped us in our order.

The falafel is really crunchy and fresh and really tasty! Not to forget the chicken kabobs; those were really tasty! Efficient service and friendly too!

It's a cool place with great food and great prices. The falafel is made right in front of you when you order so great fresh taste. The employes are always nice and pleasant to deal with. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. It's like most other places in that it fills up the later you go but they have... More

The falalafals here are so yummy. They have the best pita bread; great falafals, and a nice assortment of vegetables with the right amount of crunch. You order at the counter; but if you eat at the restaurant they will deliver to your table. They have a nice casual patio area with a fountain - which is nice to sit... More

The falafel was fairly good, along with all the fixin's you can load up with at the condiments bar. However, I got there around 8pm and the sauces (milk-based white sauce) was sitting out without ice (I did not get sick though). I also ordered a lamb shwarma, and the lamb was not at all flavorful. It was pretty dry... More
