Enjoyed our Lunch

A little hectic and disorganized with counter-only ordering, but we thought our food was very good. I had a Chicken Greek Pita and my wife had a vegetable based pita. Both were good, but the star of the meal was the falafel. Very crunchy and delicious. Overall, a great spot for a quick lunch.

Had lunch here at the weekend. Have walked by many a time and it has always been busy so we decided to give it a go. I have to admit I was decidedly underwhelmed. There was plenty of food but maybe I didn't order the best stuff on the menu as I couldn't see why it was constantly busy. Will... More

The Sabbaba wrap was delicious, quite like they serve it in the Middle East. The service, however, was lacking. Apparently there is not a single trash can in the entire restaurant for a man with a cold to toss his tissues. And a word to the wise, bring your own water.

As a long time customer it was very disappointing to visit Sabbaba at Bondi Beach and see it has rapidly declined in terms of service. Zero customers in front of me, but it still took 15 minutes to receive the 2 falafel that I ordered. Upon making them they then realised nobody had put my fries into the fryer, thus... More

This is one of the best tasting Falafel in Australia. The Pita Pocket is amazing and there are plenty of toppings to choose from. Overall the Pita is good value for money and very satisfying portion.

Love the pocket pita with Falafel & Haloumi, so much flavour and the ingredients are so fresh. Lots of options on the menu to choose from, you wont be disappointing. Staff are friendly and the food comes out quick. Just a short walk from Bondi Beach. They also have a few other stores around Sydney.

Small, corner restaurant that serves traditional Israeli food. A lot of hustle and bustle as you order at the counter and find yourself a table, inside or on the footpath. The food is tasty and the meal is filling. Not the place for a romantic first date, but certainly popular with families.

Can be good, can be a badly packed blob. At Sababba Met Centre they always seem to mistake halloumi for feta. It really depends on how busy they are I think. If they don't pack it with love you get lumps of single ingredients in different areas of the pita.
