    One of the best falafels in the city, but more importantly, easily the best value. While the "ambiance" is perhaps lacking, this fact is quickly overlooked b/c of the quality of the food.

    Delivery perfection

    Way better than other places (like Chickpea).The portions are a good size for your money and it is the tastiest falafel around and it's donut shaped! get the chicken kabob platter with sides.do it now.

    You'd walk in and think, okay, nothing special, but this was probably one of my favorite dining experiences in town. The food was really, really good, the portions were large, the price was low. If you like Turkish coffee, or if you've never had it, try theirs! It's amazingly good, just as the all reviews on their wall say. This is the perfect place to fill up quick for cheap and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    This made falafel believers out of us!

    This is a cozy little place with the best falafel ever. There's a few small tables that make for a great short meal. We got the standard falafel sandwiches with everything...and the creamy hot sauce is highly recommended. I consider myself a veteran pita-eater, and these pitas are some of the best I've had in this city. I actually wish I would have tried the pita breadsticks, but I look forward to next time. Eat here.

    Great value

    Cheap eats, yet very tasty, vegetarian-friendly food. The place is good for take-out, eating in solo or small groups, with a few tables inside and some outdoor seating . The service was quick and friendly. I tried a falafel sandwich w/fries and drink for $5.50 , which was very filling and satisfying.

    Exactly what you want

    The food at this small Middle Eastern (Egyptian, I believe) joint is excellent, and the service is efficient and genuinely friendly. With only a few small tables, it's not much of a sit-down place, so most tend to take their food to-go. The fava beans are very good, and the hummous is excellent and fresh, with just the right amount of olive oil in the crushed chickpeas. No processed taste in the hummous here. My favorite dish is the chicken kabob platter--good quality chicken, well-grilled, that comes with three sides. Lastly, the prices are low and will please any budget-conscious diner.
