Falafel!!! But for takeout....;)

The restaurant's look is nothing to worth mentioning, clean, simple and dated, like a diner for seniors, built in 1992. However the food was great! We got falafel wraps, burgers and shawarma. We've eaten a lot of falafel and really enjoyed these. So happy to finally have a good middle eastern place... read more

This was our first time at this little deli type restaurant but not our last for sure. The food was outstanding. Just like home cooking. Husband said it was better than his mom's. Just a little tiny place but made a big impression. Extensive menu but the owner was happy to accommodate any changes you wanted and even managed to... More

Visited recently. Two of us had chicken peanut rollups and the third had chicken shawarma platter. Also ordered their Mediterranean salad which was large, fresh and had a flavorful lemon based dressing. Best salad I have experienced in quite some time. The rollup, shawarma an even the french fries were excellent. Hummus was delicious. Every item home-made and the owner... More

The staff is good. Tried couple of items. Quality of food not as expected. Bland taste. Rice under cooked. Wouldn't go there any more.
