Nice place to get food to go. Simple menus and food done well. I've lived in Israel in my youth and variations on falafel are done there. Not the same everywhere. This food here in Cleveland is the real thing.

This place in 10 years will be like the Kabob Palace in DC, it will be much bigger and do a TON of business (population density permitting). Look at the kabobs in... More

I think there was one table with two or three chairs but the food was outstanding. We did eat a little there and the falafel and other goodies home. Superb!

I had dinner there with my family. The food is beyond amazing. You will get the feeling that some one spent a lot of time and effort to make sure the food is perfectly flavored and properly cooked. This is the kind of food that you expect to eat in the best restaurants in middle east. The food is grilled... More

The best falafel I have ever had! Completely fresh and always delish!!!! If you are looking for healthy and light meals at a very reasonable price; this is the place for you. If you have not but want to try Mediterranean cuisine, this is the place!
