“Worst Shawarma ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Having eaten the falafel here and absolutely loved it we decided to try the shawarma.....oh no! Never again! It was dreadful! Dry, overpriced and really not worth the having. We found ourselves asking the question, "was it fresh or had it been cooked before Shabbat and refrigerated until after Shabbat?" It just did not have a fresh feel about it.

“Good Eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a very busy place, but for good reason. The food here is very fresh and tasty. When it is busy it is best to know what you want, as you may feel rushed or pressured if you take some time trying to decide.

“Fast, Fantastic, Frugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Located on the Ben Yehuda pedestrian walkway, there is always a line up here with tourists and locals. They focus the menu on only 2-3 items but they do it very well at a very reasonable price. Items range between 15-35 shekels. Available is falafel or shawarma in a pita, laffa, baguette or plate. There is not a lot of area for seating but the street side cafe does offer a small seating section outside. Their food is fresh, fast cheap and delicious.

“the best Falafel in Jerusalem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

sometimes there is no room to seat, just take it and walk on the pedestrian walk. Also don't forget to get a lot of napkins...
