I've known the owner for over 11 years when they were still in Downtown Crossing. The food is consistently good and the kafta and falafel are delicious! Prices are extremely reasonable. The Boston Globe article, which is also on the wall, quotes me as being "a groupie". I guess I still am!

Southern outpost of the downtown Boston Falafel King, with the same high quality food and friendly service. You won't find better falafel or kafta in the Boston area.

I have been going here since they were written up in Globe years ago. It doesn't look like much, but it is the great. The falafel are perfect and fresh. Falafel sandwich with fill you up and satisfy for low money and no meat.

Walking proximity and my hubby's love for falafel makes this a treat for us. i was introduced to this by him. We love veg falafel wrap and combo. A good deal that isnt heavy on your pocket. Thou it is served cold so not all time favourite but for a change its good.

This was my first time here. I tried the falafel wrap. It was very good and the price was also very decent. I would recommend this place and would visit again.

Stopped in here just to pick up some baklava. While I was there a number of people came in to get takeout meals. Must be well thought of. The baklava was exceptionally good. Have never had one like it before as it was adorned with shaved pistachio. Great added flavor

My wife and I were running errands in Quincy, and planned to eat lunch at a local Mexican restaurant that we like very much. However, there was a huge construction project going on in the street outside that restaurant, and we couldn't park anywhere nearby. So, I pulled out my phone and went to the Tripadviser app. It informed me... More

Really good Iraqi/Middle Eastern food. The place isn't fancy but the Boston Globe gave it a great review too.
