One of the best falafels in TLV. Always busy but the line moves quick. A must-go if you’re in town!! :) the pink lemonade is also good.

Supposedly the best falafel in town and after a trip to the art museum we decided to stop by. The restaurant is easy to recognise as there is a queue of people outside of the restaurant impatiently waiting to order. Once you get to the...front of the queue you have mere seconds to order and pay to keep everything moving so I’d recommend walking to the front of the queue to pick up an english menu while you wait your turn. The food itself is absolutely delicious and the best falafel I’ve had so far in Israel (and beyond). I’d suggest braving the queue (which moves fast) and going for it and you won’t be disappointed.More

I was checking lots of reviews and decided on Falafel Hakosem and I was not disappointed. The shwarma was amazing and included falafel, and delicious eggplant. Definitely worth visiting.

A must if you are in Tel Aviv. It’s like going to a New York Jewish deli for falafel. And the falafel on laffa bread is plenty for two to share. Amazing!!

Really good shawarma. People queue up. Not only tourists, but also locals. Shawarma is made of turkey. Would have given 5 starts if the guy at the counter would be more helpful and friendly.

Terribly expensive !! The food does not justify the exorbitant price, insanely small and expensive dishes

Just in the city center, this place offers great opportunities for Israeli street food . We had great Falafel, Shuarma and Sabich. Everything was delicious. As people are walking in all the time, the food is fresh. The place itself is very clean. The prices...are higher than other places with the same dishes.More

Best sandwiches in Tel Aviv !!! Full of freshness and taste. A very good place to eat with a good service in the heart of the city.

Best falafel ever. Shawarma is a masterpiece, and a dish serving is awesome. Also, it is bigger than shawarma. Definitely consider buying "The Hummus Way" book they sell there, if you have a chance.

I don't know how they do it, but, their schwarma managed to be crispy, yet moist, and free of gristle. It's a lively place in a great neighborhood. I went with a small group. There was a line, of course, but, it went fast and...we all enjoyed what we ordered.More

If you want the best of the best, try the shawarma Hummus and falafel. Absolutely the best! Don’t miss out on the grenadine/limonade juice.

The best shawarma in Tel Aviv... Just like that. Really good flavour, fair price, good size. If you go to Tel Aviv, this place is a must in your list.

I am truly a falafel fanatic and have tried it in most place visited. My daughter previously visited Hakosem and told me that, if I do nothing else in Israel, have Hakosem falafel. I was afraid that she overhyped it but this was hardly the...case. For my first visit, I ordered a half shawarma and a half falafel. The shawarma was excellent but the falafel blew my doors off. In the freshest pita, they included crispy falafel balls, humus, veggies and tahini. I ordered it spicy but it was not brutal. It was well presented, fresh, hot and completely delicious. I was shocked at how much better this falafel was above all others. I ate my dinner outside at clean tables and made new friends. Great food and great experience. I returned two nights later and ordered a while falafel. Loved it. If you want a real treat, add this place to your itinerary. Wow!More
