A winner every time. The Turkish bread and hummus are staples of our visits. Add in a Greek salad with fresh veggies, and the Filfillah platter. You've got a delectable feast for two. Don't leave without some baklava.

Really good food. Big portion sizes, freshly cooked and tasty. I recommend the iskandar as it has a tangy tomato sauce. Get the garlic sauce and other sauces as well. Load up on the Turkish bread.

I split a sampler platter and an appetizer with 2 friends. It was plenty of food for all and everything was delicious. The dining area is a bit cramped and the service was average, but the meal made up for inconveniences. Highly recommended

My mother and I LOVE Middle-Eastern cuisine! Our favorites are Holy Land and Jerusalem's. However, once we finally got around to visiting Filfillah, our allegiances began to change. This food is PHENOMENAL!!! Fresh, vibrant, and delicious! AND it's something my mother can order via Door...More

This was our first visit to Filfillah. After having visited a few well-known Middle Eastern/Greek restaurants in the same area for the last few years, I consider Filfillah simply the BEST! All food was well prepared and delicious. And their bread is unique! Service was...More
