Really nice place for rolls, salads and mezes. We are a falafel roll and a salad and both were large and delicious. Staff very friendly. You can eat inside and outside. Just good place to eat.

This place has not only the nicest staff, best service, but also the most amazing food! The falafel rolls are literally to die for with extra toppings you can add. EAT HERE YOU WONT REGRET IT!

Great service, very friendly gentleman behind the counter. Extra points for that. Good ambition, mediocre execution. We had Meze Special, Levant Special and Chicken Shawarma. The Shawarma was very good. The meze was average. Hummus was very average, Falafel was dry and the baba ganoush...had no character. Tabboleh was good, pita bread was store bought.More

I happened to walk in Helsinki with a child and decided to offer them a nice lunch. The place claims to be street food, ok, but they refused to make a smaller version of anything and (it was my first time there so I asked...) could not suggest something nice to try. Rude and unfriendly impression overall. Luckily, there are many nicer places around which I knew and we had a great lunch. Perhaps it would have been a better experience as solo adult. Since then I have passed this place many times by myself but there is really no way in hell I am ever going there.More

We found very nice food from here, made from tasty, healthy and fresh incredients. We also encountered most friendly service by the young polite cook & waiter serving us. He really made our day. GOOD JOB!

I usually order lunch from this place 9 of 10 times the food is good and it I'm happy. Sometimes you can see they have rushed your order and its a mess =) Altogether I like this place. Can't say much about the service because...I never get to go there my self.More

Considering I'm not especially found of chickpeas I was a bit sceptical when my girlfriend wanted to go here. But these guys knew how to make tasty food so the chickpeas wasn't such a big issue after all.
