I ordered falafel wrap & sweet potato fries. The wrap was filling enough for one person and overall OK. The potato fries were mushy and bland, so wouldn't recommend trying them out.

We bought a falafel wrap and a chicken wrap as a few times before. We waited for 15 minutes and got raw french fries and two wraps with mainly wrap and old raw onions and some lettuce. We couldn't eat them. The food used to...be good.More

Hello Nina!! Thank you for your feedback! Are you sure there was nothing in the wraps, no falafels and no chicken? Only onion and lettuce?? We will check this as soon as possible! I remember you, you are regular from Finland! Please when you come...More

I've had a lot of Lebanese food and this was one of my favourites. I'm myself from the middle east and Papa Joe's food tasted like home. Very friendly staff and nice cute place.

Thank you! We appreciate your review!!

This was good street food. It's nothing fancy and it reflects in the price. Served on plastic plates or as a wrap. Mind, that I have never had falafels before so maybe I'm not an expert. Not many places here where one can get some....Their website is quite terrible, but it conveys enough information. It just annoys me a bit professionally.More

We had read a lot of good reviews from this place...sadly, we were disappointed. We took falafel, sujuc & halloumi, chicken, and meat rolls. Everything were very dry. There were so little sauce and salad in the rolls. They may be making the falafels themselves,...but they were already made before so they did not taste anymore fresh. My arabic friend only liked Baklava we took also. Maybe they have received so many good reviews that they no longer have to make good food. Sometimes riding on old reputation is not the best idea...More

Such a great taste! The best falafel wrap I've ever tasted. Fresh sallad and sauces are magical. The falafel is a chapter of its own. Juicy and the perfect combination of spices and ingredients. Truly AMAZING !! Thank you!

Not a good kebab. To little meat, and meat did not taste as kebab. Not used to pickled cucumber in, and that was a lot of.

5€ for a chicken wrap and no drinks since there is a cash only policy and I didn't have more on me. ATM is close by so no worries if you have the time. The wrap was decent. Not the best not the worst I've...had. 5€ is a bit overpriced for the amount of food and service I received. 3€ would've been about correct.More

I thought i would try out "Papa Joe's." It is obvious that they 'fluffed' their reviews. It is a good 'food shack,' not a real full restaurant. (no napkins or salt and pepper on the tables) Joe's is just inside the doors of grocery. It...has seating for 8, maybe 10 adults.The menu is short, but good. I had the beef pita, and it was good. The Dolmades are from a can, but they are good ones. Bottom line: Joe's is nice, but don't get you hopes up for more than it can provide.More

Nice place and authentic Lebanese food. Highly recommend the falafel wrap with hummus. Friendly service and good prices also

This place is the best place to go to in Tallinn when you're looking for some good falafels. The quality is superb! The only minus (for us at least) is that they're at the port, which is a part of Tallinn we hardly go to....Would gladly pay extra for a delivery service if it was offered!More

This is a small fast-food stand in a shopping building near the harbor. I had expected it to be more like a restaurant, but this was not a problem. We had 2 wraps filled with hummus, falafel, and babaganuche. The wraps were large and tasted...very good. There are 3 small tables where you can sit to eat. The service was friendly. It is not a place to go out of your way for. But if you are in the area like we were or just passing by, then we can recommend stopping here for a meal or snack that is tasty and provides good value.More
