A note first that this is not a kosher restaurant -- it is "kosher-style" which means that the ingredients follow kosher rules to the best ability of the management but there is no kosher supervision, meaning that Orthodox Jewish people generally cannot eat here.

Had a falafel: the falafel balls were a deep green color (Egyptian style) and very very good. Note that falafel comes with Israeli salad stuffed into the pita and everything is delicious as well as really fresh, but there is no Israeli-style salad bar of goodies to add and that would make for a nice addition. Definitely recommended unless you are Orthodox.

Great food at a reasonable price. Everything is made fresh to order with great sauces. Pita sandwiches are packed with flavor, worth a visit.
