Whether you're kosher or not, this place is perfect for when you don't want to cook. The meals are huge and can be eaten the next day for lunch.

Shwarma, kabob, chicken breast - all great and consistent every time. Hummus is amazing. The little Israeli salads that come with your meal are all flavorful and surprisingly fun.

Have 20 napkins on your when you eat the laffa because it is very messy.

Note that it's not open Friday and Saturday due to Shabbat.

We had Falafel and a chicken shawarma plate and it was great. Everything was fresh made and everybody was very friendly. Go there!

Popped in for a quick felafel, with this being my first one since my great experience from a booth in Prague. This didn't disappoint. Nice staff too.

I was advised by a local to come here for dinner, and it was totally worth it. I had a shish kebab in pita, it was really good, you can actually choose the additional ingredients like hummus or tahini sauce. All good, service is fast and precise and very kind.

Shefa means "abundant" in Hebrew and boy is it an appropriate name for this place! You get so much food and it's absolutely delicious. I had the schnitzel plate. It was crispy and juicy and cooked just right. The Israeli salad was fresh and the pickles inside were an added touch of yummy. The fries are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The homemade hummus is amazing. And there's so much food I had enough to take home with me! Also, if you can look up from your plate long enough you'll be impressed by the beautiful decor and ambience around you as well! If you're in the Melrose/WEHO area, there is no better place for a delicious kosher meal. Hell, even if you're not, it's worth the drive. You won't be sorry! :)
