Food is absolutely bad. Quantity is very less. On top of that they charge 18% service fee. Even restaurant like big bowl don't charge that much. I will not recommend anyone to get rip off at that Restaurant.

My best friend was visiting from Toronto and we were going to go to Psycho Susie's but one look at the parking situation we decided no way! So I told him I know this place where the food is great and parking didn't seem to be an issue. I think a lot of their business is take away. But you... More

I've had Med. food in Israel & Saudi Arabia; this is still the best I've ever tasted. The puffy, homemade bread is amazing, fresh & hot fr the oven. The mezze platter & combo platter gives us leftovers for 2 more servings. We won't eat shwarma anywhere else after having it here, NOT the generic stuff most places heat &... More

Definitely, No Arabian person will like this restaurant and I don't think others will do. I went to the restaurant for a late lunch. Flays was all around the place. The soup came very late. Ale maze plate items came from frozen food. Other foods like Adana cabab and the bred was over cooked. Workers was extremely slow. I was... More

The food was decent and pretty authentic - however I have to mention the great service that we got at this place. The staff showed attention to detail and promptly acted despite being quite busy at the time.

I had dinner at this restaurant with 3 friends. We ordered a sampler plate for 3 as well as an appetizer to split. The food was awesome! The falafels and hummus: great. The bread-crispy outside and soft and chewy inside; great for sopping up the varied sauces. We were full and happy and each even got to take some of... More

We had a very nice time and the food was very good. I cannot wait for the opportunity to go back. I am a huge fan of gyro meat and thus had the shawarma plate, which was OK (some gristly pieces), but the falafel we also ordered was fantastic. I also loved the tabouli. The in house baked bread was... More

I went today for the second time and it's still very good. The soup was good as was the tabbouleh salad, surrounded by slices of ripe tomato. The lamb sharwarma was very good too, just a tad short of tahini. The food seems to be all fresh here, not the frozen meat loaves shipped in from Chicago, like most places... More

I tried the Adana plate, a beef/lamb shish-kabob, that came with pita, mounds of rice, and their Filfillah salad. Great value. Meat was dry but came with a slice of tomato and peppers and yogurt-based dipping sauces. Staff was pleasant

We visited Filfillah restaurant on Sunday afternoon and ordered falafel wrap, jerusalem wrap and kofta plate. The dishes were good, especially falafel wrap. On the service side, I was not impressed. The first wrap was brought without the accompanying items mentioned in the menu, the service was slow.
