Learned about that place from The foodies list youtube show and wanted to check if that is as good as they say. The answer is yes! Place is crowded with locals, falafel in pita is delicious, staff is very friendly. Don't miss it!

You will find for sure some good falafel in Yaffa because most falafels in Tel Aviv are closed till Monday evening .
