“A great pit stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you like cheap, healthy snack food such as falafel, shwarma, etc, this is a GREAT little pit stop....situated on BenYehuda, street it is easy to find and the queues tell you that this is a popular place for many locals too...Service is fun, fast and the portions are large - I asked for a half a portion of pitta stuffed with shwarma, humous and salad and this was enough for me....this was not our first stop at this place and service and food have been consistently good. It is not a sit down restaurant, its a take away but there are some places to sit in the street.

“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.
