Wow! That’s all I can say. If you are in Tel Aviv and you don’t try it, you’re missing something special. Get it with everything on it! You won’t be disappointed.

Great value and friendly staff. The falafel is just amazing! When the queue is long (and it most certainly can be) they hand out free falafels to the customers. Don't miss to order falafel in laffa if you are hungry. Ate here twice during a...More
