I only had the shawarma and my wife had the falafel, but we returned here twice because it was so good. The Falafel pita was 75 pesos and the shawarma pita was 95 pesos. So tasty with a little spice. This is not a fancy place, but you can find fancy and pricey all around the neighborhood. Closes at 11:00pm.

The food is amazing, especially the kebab! wow!
This is pretty new and i hope they get more people, the food is really something!
Nice service, free wifi and the prices are normal compares to the area.
A little bit small place, because a lot of people are coming all the time you probably won't find a place to sit.

I used to go years ago to "L'As du Falafel" and to "Chez Mariane" almost every Sunday afternoon. This 2 restaurants serve the best falafels in Paris. Both places located Rue des Rosiers (district IV in Paris called Le Marais). Both are delicious. I was unable to find a better place in Israel for falafels. Sure there must be one but I just stopped looking. Anyway, Yala just opened so, I had to try. The place is neat and very clean. The concept is really nice with all that nice and solid wood in contrast with the inox appliances that also adds to the place. The service is also very good. What about my falafel? Well, the garbanzo (chickenpeas) balls are VERY good. The best I've ever eaten. To make them become the best falafel ever (in my opinion) is to add a sauce like the ones in Paris, yoghurt or humus sauce... very creamy. And the red cabbage too. But definitely, the falafels are very good. I enjoyed the place and the food. Sure you are not coming to Playa to eat falafels but you'll be wrong no to go and try. I recommend you to go.
