We came here for a quick dinner. The selection of food is quite limited but everything is fresh, fast and tasty. The whole restaurant was very busy, but we luckily found a seat within 5 minutes. The free tea was a nice gesture and everything...More

Went on a mission to Habibi after reading a rec in our Germany guide book (touted as best in Germany). It was quite tasty, falafel was very good as was shawarma. It wasn't necessarily better, however, than other places we tried in Cologne. Many spots...More

Visited after reading about this place in 'the Rough Guide To Germany'. They rated it as arguably the best falafel in Germany. Fact is it is just average. What qualifies me to say this, 3 years living in the Middle East, and travels in Germany....More

We went there for dinner tonight as this place was recommended to us. I love middle eastern food and ordered the Barakka dish with Haloumi, Falafel, baba ganoush, hummus, tabouleh and beans. It was good but nothing special, I was a bit disappointed to be...More

The hole in the wall spot is a great for cheap/quick falafel and meat platters. Space is at a premium so don't expect to find a table around lunch time or for a large group. The staff are cheery and welcoming with the lovely cinnamon...More

This is a small place where you order and pay at the counter but the atmosphere and decor has character. The flavor of the shawarma sandwich was incredible. I would have eaten 2 if it didn't make me look like a pig. The cinnamon tea...More

My bf and I were there and tried Habibi and Cologne plate dishes. Both were tasty, falafel was not special. Generally it was good and I 'll go there again but it is a small restaurant and not with nice atmosphere.

In my "shop" put a big piece of my soul, because I love my work. We buy fresh ingredients at the market It is my joy to make my Arab staff familiar with my concept of quality and friendliness. The special recipes with exotic spices are my secret. I weigh myself, the individual constituents of my spice mixes. Especially for falafel and shawarma there is nothing comparable in the region delicious. My meat is marinated in its own ritual and directly processed in the kitchen.
