We ate at many different falafel restaurants during our visit and this was by far our favorite. Always very busy, and the falafel & toppings were always fresh!! You have to learn the art of walking & eating at the same time!! Would go back again next time we visit Haifa!!

Very special place! You won't go for the decor, but you'll go for what is reportedly the best falafel in Israel (they've got awards to prove it). You'll also want to go for the experience of being in Vadi Nissnass - one of Haifa's charming and old authentic Arab neighborhoods. Service is friendly and fast. Always busy but never a... More

A nice place in Wadi NISNAS rd., rather clean, but I must say I have eaten better falafel balls in my life. This stand is an iconic institute in Haifa, half a portion is only 8 shekels (like 2 $), so it's worth a bite.
