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.

Found this place through Living Social. Had the beef/lamb shawarma plate for $10.95. I travel to Toronto a lot and always make it a point to have great shawarma off the spit - this was as good or better than any I've had elsewhere. Everything is made on the premises - the pita is fresh baked and sooooo much better... More

A friend & I were recently in Minneapolis for a conference & we were going to a movie screening in the area & came upon this restaurant. I looked it up on my phone on Trip Advisor & saw the wonderful reviews, so we checked it out for ourselves. The food is wonderfully fresh & delicious! Very large portions! We... More

The waitress was friendly and inviting. She answered all of our questions about the food, made suggestions, and made us comfortable trying a new type of restaurant. The hummus was the best I have ever tasted. The kababs, the lamb, the beef, the shwarmas, all amazing. The rice was absolutely perfect. The salad was perfectly dressed. The baklava was perfectly...

I knew this place was going to be special when I walked up to the counter to order my kebab and saw the mini "salad bar" of condiments there. Homemade tatziki, homemade hummus, homemade baba ganoush, dolmas, kalamata olives, feta cheese, lettuce and dressings. So of course I ordered a Plate in order to take advantage of these extras, which... More

One of our family friends invited us over to check out Filfillah one weekend. My family had reservation and thought it was one of those " run of the mill" Middle Eastern fast food type like Holy Land and the Marinas ( I and II). I was completely surprised that their food taste way much better than the average Middle... More

My Arabic friend recommended this place and I'm so happy she did. It was delicious. I got the Mezze platter and there was so much food. I could only eat half of it. The tzatziki sauce was amazing. Everything was really good and for a reasonable price. I was expecting the usual food, but this was some of the best... More

I am still full from eating there around noon. My boyfriend's family ordered for the 7 of us, including salad, a mixed meat platter on rice, along with bazlama bread and ending with Turkish coffee and desserts. Everything tasted so fresh, including the meat and bread, which is shocking compared to the other places I've eaten in the Twin Cities... More
