We live around the corner from this falafel place on Derech Beit Lechem (corner of Shimon street). Good turnover so the falafel balls are always fresh. The garlic spread is really good. Great alternative to cooking once in a while!

One of the better Falafels around. A little on the oily site but very tasty. There is nothing like one of these traditional small Falafel stands with only Falafel on the menu.

Our neighborhood felafel stand. Have been eating in this tiny place for years and it's always great! Two little tables on the sidewalk, otherwise it's take-away. Really fresh and flavorful salads and the felafel balls are light and delicious. Try it!

I lived around the corner from this little gem of a place - It was always my go to place to relax and eat. Mostly take away, not a lot of places to sit, but the quality of food is amazing

as the other reviewer said, street food. But gourmet street food. No oil soaked half-warm falafel balls here. Just fresh, piping hot, fresh lafas (the Lebanese bread) and good hearty food. I'd say among the very best falafel in Jersusalem

It's a falafel stand. It's street food. And in the words of top chef, it's elevated street food. Everything is well made, and all the little bits and pieces are delicious and work well together. They also make a yummy garlicky spread, which is unusual for falafel, and it's delicious and wonderful. I haven't found a better falafel place in... More
