Fast food
Middle Eastern

Serves meat, vegan options available. Walk-up Israeli restaurant/kiosk with separate vegetarian and grill (meat) sides and covered sit-down area with plenty of tables. Almost all the choices on the vegetarian side are or can be made vegan, including the classic hummus plate, falafel and masabacha. So popular there's always a long line on the vegetarian side. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-10:00pm.

Best Falafel in Bay Area

Amazing crispy falafel and creamy hummus with many flavorful salad toppings in a plate or pita. Separate vegetarian counter, but not all toppings are vegan so be sure to specify when ordering

So much food

Got takeout. The amount of hummus was way more than I expected, the pita was great. I enjoyed all the food, though it was a lot and I’ll need to keep in mind that one order in the amount I got is pretty much enough for two people.

A great place with great food

It is great that the vegetarian service is separate from meat area. The food is so good!

Pros: Great vegan options, Wonderful pita!

Cons: Seating on picnic tables

Love the falafel plates

There is a whole vegetarian side of the restaurant with a separate line where you can ask for a diversity of ingredients to top falafel plates, Israeli salad, and Sabich. Authentic Israeli food. Tastiest falafel in South Bay and a nice semi-outdoor place to sit.

The best falafel in the Bay Area

This is the best falafel in the Bay Area. They make it just like it's done in Israel and their pita bread is amazing.

Wow Amazing

Super Delicious, Super Affordable.

This was amazingly delicious. We really enjoyed our plate. We love that there were so many options on our plate.

The baba ganoush was amazing!! I don't even like baba ganoush but this was my favorite item here! Wow amazing flavor.

The pita was really nice also. It was nice and moist.

Falafel Salad: Great deal, delicious food. When you order they ask you if you want it spicy or not. We got one with spice ans one without. It's the same price.

The falafels were fresh, I watched them fry them right before putting them on the plate. The falafels were fresh but not my favorite. They weren't very flavorful. I prefer the falafels at CAVA. I haven't seen a CAVA in the area.

The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful even though it wasn't busy when I ordered.

The ordering was a bit confusing. You go to the middle to order then hand the tickets under the window.

Parking: there were about 10 spots. It was a pretty slow time so I found a spot, but can imagine it might be an issue if it was busy.
