When we first arrived everyone got a free falafel to taste. When we got our food it looked so fresh and we could choose from different condiments to put on. None leaving this place will be disappointed.

Always lined up. Three generations of the family are there to serve you. Prices are reasonable and the falafel (all they serve) is the best in Haifa, if not Israel.

And probably in Israel overall. Generous servings for a fair price (15 shekels for a whole pita) and a lovely hospitality. They let you taste their falafel and tahini as you step inside. If you're in Haifa, skip the fancy restaurants and stop by.

Excellent falafel, one of two best in Haifa, in a very authentic neighbourhood of Wadi Nisnas. The owners provide very friendly service and are proud to share the story of the place.

Several locals recommended this spot as THE place for falafel in Haifa. It's an unassuming shop that appeared constantly busy. We LOVED the falafel and proclaimed it the best we ate in our 10 day trip. There is no seating...you order it and eat it while strolling thru Haifa.

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!!
