Zula has been around for a while, and it’s no surprise. This place is consistently excellent. I keep coming back, despite having a list of new places to check out. Depending on your schedule, Zula can get pretty full, which will result in slower service....More

A dinner for two in a nice setting, very friendly staff and delicious authentic Jewish/ Arab cuisine. We had falafels and shawarma in pita bread with some delicious and huge fruit juices. Definitely worth the visit! One of our favorites!

We had a very nice meal here. The falafel was very good. Very good service. A calm restaurant but perhaps to close to the main street.

My friend and I tried the falafels at Zula's and it was great! Probably the best ones I've ever had. It was also very reasonably priced!

We ate there frequently during our nearly 2-week stay in Santa Teresa. I thought the food was excellent and pretty close to what you can find in Israel. It would be so great if they had laffa bread..
