If you are looking for a bit of Israeli falafel...go to Israel!! But if you are in the Boston area, Rami's is a great second choice. The very small place has a warm atmosphere of people coming and going with some Hebrew conversation. The hummus, shwarma and salads are super yummy. The falafel is... read more

Ordered the Falafel/ Shwarma combination plate. The Falafel was good the Shwarma was dried out and not very tasty. Place was clean. I found it annoying that when you go to pay you are asked to give a tip. There are options of tips of 15% and up. There is an option of no tip. This is not a restaurant... More

Fantastic Shawarma, all the toppings you would expect from a shawarma joint. By far the best Shawarma place outside of the middle east.

The best hummus, falafel, shwarma and pita I have had outside if Israel. The pita is served soft and warm, the hummus cold and lightly spiced, the falafel crispy on the surface but soft and lightly spiced inside and the pita, well i always ask for a second piece. so-so parking, but walking before and after the meal can't hurt.

Shawarma and Falafel are excellent. Went back the next day for another falafel plate. Best Falafel I have ever tasted to date. Place was clean and service was quick

Everything about this place is amazing! The Pita and Shawarma are both fresh and taste amazing. I usually get the chicken or turkey shawrma pita and I have to say I've never had such good hummus in my life. The pita is filling and the mango Israeli nectar/soda is a delish...I can't wait to come back.

Very authentic felafel plus small restaurant popular with locals. Try the felafel plate. No sit down service but place order and then grab a table if you can. Basically fast food with personality.

I've been going to Rami's for about twenty years now. It's a storefront felafel joint in Coolidge Corner, Brookline, Massachusetts. The felafel they serve is always freshly fried, crispy and light. An added bonus is their pita bread, which as good as any I've ever had. (They say they fly it in from Israel, hard to believe). When the pita... More

Good falafel and shawarma restaurant restaurant. Everything is fresh. Space is a little on the small side, so take-out is probably better.

Any excuse to head down Harvard street I'm there! The falafel is so good, that when it's summer and j have an appointment in town, friends will put their orders in and they are waiting at my home. We've made a party of it. The pita is freshly made - the falafel go so fast, they are made to order... More
