This is a very small place where they serve meat shawarma, chicken shawarma and falafel in thin breads. The falafel was very good. I liked the chicken shawarma, but it contained garlic which gave a special taste. But I prefer the meat one.

Delicious, crunchy falafel with the best of fresh ingredients and sauce. A "must have" when in Beirut.

Relying on its reputation for being one of the top falafel snacks in Lebanon, falafel freiha did nothing to impress me. I passed by this branch for a quick shawarma bite expecting to be amazed and I was not disappointed. I was amazed by the lack of cleanliness, unprofessional posture of the cashier and the unjust price to size ratio... More
