“fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We sat down for lunch to watch the hummus and falafel mix being freshly made. One of the best and freshest falafels I have ever had and after traveling through south america for the past 11 months it was nice to have real hummus. The pita bread was also made fresh and had just come out of the oven when we arrived.
We ate here twice as we liked it so much the first time, try the limonada its also very good.

“Cheap delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

You pay 50 pesos for 1 pita with falafel, vegetables and hummus. The pitabread is home-made and delicious. So are the falafel and hummus. You can also choose if you want to add jurkins, spicy peppers or hot sauce.
I really liked it. If I had more time to visit it again, I would!!

“Tasteless”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Have been twice with some friends. The first time, I was really looking forward to it as I love falafel. The bread and the falafel are hand made. They call it pita, but in reality it is more of a flat bread. The falafels were completely tasteless and so was the tahini/hummus they had on the side. The one thing that can vbe said is that it is cheap. So you can fill up easily for little money. For me, not a great selling point.

I did go back a second time because friends were going to eat there. But would not otherwise.

“Great falafel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Excellent falafel in a cute environment. Go on Tuesdays when falafel is 3 for the price of 2! You can watch them make the falafel while you sip on your drink and wait for your order.
