This is deifnately a plcae to check out in Tel Aviv. The kitchen runs smoothly as they work away the line through most of the day. The flavours of the meals are great and after having experienced this you will not want any other falafel/shoarma.

The falafel here is great. The best I have ever had. Service at counter is good, and they are patient with non-Hebrew speaking tourists. Outdoor seating.

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...More

You will find for sure some good falafel in Yaffa because most falafels in Tel Aviv are closed till Monday evening .
Is it possible to eat gluten free here? I have celiac disease.
