They say this is the best falafel in Tel Aviv. Who knows? They always get a huge crowd and they have the preparation down to a science that is fun to watch. The falafel is very good. Little known is that off to the right they offer sit down table service if you don't want to stand or fight for... More

Great falafel! Great Schwarma!! Despite the longe queue (well... but empty food place, question the quality...), it worth the waiting. The staff constantly brings falafel to the one waiting. The falafel is absolutely great! The service super friendly and the lemonade also quite special. Absolutely recommended.

I can't say this for sure but this may be the best shawarma in the city. If not the best it is definitely ranking among the top spots. The falafel, salad and options are numerous. Expect a line to place your order. It's like the Shake Shack of Tel Aviv. Very popular.

There are 2 ways to eat here. Take Out or order a plate and sit in the outdoor seating area. My wife and I opted to order 2 Falafel Plates and dine . When our food arrived it became evident there was way too much food. It was all very good but we could have fed 2 more people. It... More

This place is just wonderful! If we are about to talk about street food - this is how it should look like and taste everywhere! Even though there is always a long line, trust me - it is worth waiting! The portions are very big and full of different ingredients. I had Shawarma Pitch with some cabbage, spicy hummus, pickles...

Really special experience. Best Shuwarma/ Falafel in Tel-Aviv. Professional staff, clean and testy. Don't be afraid from the que, it goes away really quickly and you can test the Falafel in the mean time you are waiting.
