For me this was the best falafel pita on my whole trip through Israel. Owner is very friendly, you even get a free falafel for trying while you are waiting for your falafel pita. Loved this place and the falafel pita.

We found it on TripAdvisor and went to try. The place is retro, classic style I guess as it was since it has a long history. The people are very welcoming and kind. The falafel is very tasty! Not heavy, not oily, not too spicy....More

The falafel is just wonderful and I think one really needs to have one when in Haifa. They always give one falafel ball to taste and after that you just can't refuse. We have never had a bad experience here.

The best recommendation i can give this place is that I drove from Tel Aviv just to eat here. The tahina has the perfect blend of lemon which so many establisments scrimp on. Finding that they now serve Kubbeh was a bonus.

Felafel Ha’zkenim serves felafel and only felafel and cold drinks to accompany felafel. Lines extend into the street, but they keep it moving. My advice is to order the whole felafel sandwich - a whole freshly baked pita filled with a few freshly fried felafel...More

I’ve only eaten falafel a few times in my life. Honestly this is one of the best tasting things I’ve eaten in my life. Forget whether or not you like falafel, or if you’ve had it, and just consider eating here because it is delicious....More

No Schawarma. They specialize in Falafel, and they have the BEST Falafel. This is a tiny place - 6-7 seats max. Most people eat standing up or carry it out. The place is almost always packed with people, and you can see tray... More
