We went here with recommendations from a colleague. This is not a fancy place for sure, but the food was really good. People were really nice to help us on what to get since this was our first time there. There was a line and I was told line would be 3-4 times longer for lunch. We had beef, lamb, and falafel- all tasted really good.

Atmosphere is moderately sanitary picnic tables on a busy street, but when the falafel is this crunchy and tender, and the pita is this fresh, who cares?

There is history to this place, even though it's a small place people rush in for the taste and value of it. Probably you cannot get such tasty falafel anywhere in Bay Area.

There is always a line but it moves quick. We come for lunch when we are on the area and it never disappoints. The portions are large and meals are always tasty. I like the gyro in pita or salad.

Love this place. Falafel is fresh and spicy. Banana shake rocks. This is a must stop if ever in San Jose
