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!

We almost didn't go in when we drove up but I'm glad we did. It smelled so good we could have eaten the air. The menu is limited but it doesn't have to be huge because it's specialized. Fortunately we were the front of the...More

I love going here on a rainy day! The food just makes you feel good! My favorite on the menu is the Shawarma, but the Falafel is also great. The owner is always there, and he is always exceptionally pleasant. He only takes cash, so...More
