    Best shawarma and falafels around! Say yes to the roasted eggplant and lookout for the spiked lemonade, its a summer must. Super friendly staff

    Enjoy the free falafel before you order. The menu is entirely in Hebrew but save yourself and other diners time by simply going straight for a shawarma or falafel in pita with everything.

    HaKosem is renowned for some of Tel Aviv’s best falafel sandwiches. With the pitas baked in a special oven, salads freshly chopped, and the falafel balls made to perfection, you’ll never want to.. Read more

    Like this. Huge plates,but you can order a half or share it between two. They also give free pitah and falafel balls with every plate. If you take a table you may skip the line and order at cash desk.

    Loved it! A modern take on the traditional food, nicely nuanced. The place is a hotspot – but you can skip the line by taking a table. Great service, cool vibe.

    Falafel here is really good. And they add roasted eggplant into it. And you can also order a half which is a great option cause I just couldn't finish it.

    Delicous falafel. Whilst queuing was offered a free bite. Falafel plate is so huge that it could be shared between two.

    The Falafel is amazing and so is the Schwarma. You won't miss the Falafel anyway since they add a few Falafel balls to each Pita you take.

    To die for! Every thing is just delicious especially the eggplants. Lovely staff, big terrace and great design (modern and simple but cosy).
  • Cameron F.
    Amazing shawarma! Get it in the large wrap (not a pita) and you can easily share it with a friend.

    Best fast food in Tel Aviv. Shavarma in lafa is just plain must-have-heaven and if there is line, you get falafel for free. Top!

    When the guy offers you "khatzil matzil" ('saviour' eggplant - it's a Hebrew play on words) you should accept it. It's dipped in dough, deep fried and delicious.

    It's just OK, but by no means mind buggling as some people wrote in their reviews. They charge 18 NIS per Falafel while about half mile down the road Ratson Falafel is 6 NIS. Not Worth Tripple price!

    Как и во всех популярных хуммусных, чтобы получить заказ необходимо испытать стресс. Сначала от выбора, за тем от способа заказа и в конце понять где этот вымученный заказ получить.
