This is one of my go-to lunch spots in the Loop. Love the chicken kabob CYO plate and the fresh red cabbage and tabbouleh salads, but it's all good. Line can get long and there aren't many places to sit, so you may need to do take-out - but the food is great!

I was happy to find a place with authentic Israel taste. I fell in love with falafel and it was very exciting to find one here. Will definitely tell my friends about this place.

I've been going here since this opened. IDOF is a real find - the food is fresh, tasty and filling. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the Falafelicious Wrap with hummus, cabbage, fresh vegetables, "smashed" falafel and your choice of sauce is a great meal.

Wanted a Halal certified meal catered in honor of Syrian guests. IDoF prepared, delivered and set up a very nice Middle Eastern buffet for our group of 50 and did it within our limited budget. We served their yummy Falafel with dipping sauces, stuffed grape leaves and Hummus/Baba ganoujeh with pita chips for appetizers. We had tomato/cucumber salad with lemon... More

This restaurants really tasty. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. My friend and I both needed to charge our phones and there was a wall outlet near our table. That was super convenient. The baklava was really delicious and unique. Overall I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Mediterranean food.

Thank Ren P
