We were in town for the marathon and on the lookout for good places to grab a bite. What a find! This is a sweet little place with a couple of tables and incredibly delicious food. Wish he'd open up another place back home. Try the falafel and grab some baklava for the road. This is a little gem, do... More

We got the falafel sandwich and the chicken shwarma. Both were good, but the falafel sandwich was exceptional, and the best my husband and I have ever had. The falafel was lightly crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, and the pita bread was fresh and soft.

The falafel was very good traditional selection and reminded of family recipies. The gentleman who was the sole proprietor was sweet and helpful. Bringing out a table so we could sit in the sun. We had 4 meals out of one order and enjoyed each meal. Certainly the best food we had in this trip to Anchorage.

Family owned little restaurant, fast service, flavorful falafel and shawarma. Everyone cooks falafel differently. This place has course ground chick peas, scooped with ice cream scooper, deep fried. Exterior can be thick, hard, overdone...still delicious inside.

The shawarma here is awesome! Such a great little hole in the wall restaurant that is always good. Super nice family who runs it and I'm always glad I stopped. Best shawarma and falafel in Anchorage!

Great little place...just don't get them talking about world politics or you might find the world is about to implode. Passionate about their homeland! Very cozy and delicious. What more could you ask for?

Every time I eat here I wonder "Why don't I eat here more often!". The dude who runs this place is fantastic. I essentially always get the schwarma and it is great. If you've been to Europe, think Donner Kebap, only better! He only takes cash, but I have no issues with that. The schwarma for lunch is just the... More
