Really tasty falafel and halloumi Pitts. Difficult to eat and a bit messy but so tasty. Shop is tiny with seating for about 10. Lots of people just seemed to get take out

Truly the best falafel in Helsinki! The halloumi and falafel pitta is a favourite as well as the vegan falafel pitta. I go here regularly and am never disappointed with the quality or size of the food. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff and several great central locations. Perfect for a quick bite on your own or with friends. Most pittas around... More

I've heard so much good about Fafa's, so i was eager to try it out myself. Ordered the cauliflower pita, and was disappointed; it had this very strong bitter taste, and it had too much chili so all i could taste was this bitter taste and chili. Also too expensive compared to the ingredients used in the food.

Tiny Lebanese bistro/take away. The food was fresh and deliciously prepared. Everything is kept very simple and they have a rather small card. This is more a spot for a quick snack/lunch, not really a place to dwell and unwind. Service was very friendly and helpful!

Kebab was cold. It was a weird steak of we don't know which meat inside. I don't advice to go there, there are plenty of restaurants around which look better.

Fafas is mainly known for its falafel, made a mistake once and ordered a chicken plate, its was good but average. I always order the pita falafel with halloumi, it is excellent.

I am not vegetarian eater myself. I had international guest from Canada visiting Helsinki. We wanted to have something good and fresh vege food for lunch. Buffets weren't option. Fafa's a bit over 10 € platters of delicious components were absolutely worth money. Everything was tasty and fresh. Service was kind enough and that small eatery was cosy. Not maybe... More
