I was surprised by this restaurant. The serve really delicious falafel dishes for decent price. Falafel is not overfried and keeps its freshness and taste. In combination with salad and delicious salsas it is a must eat if you search for cheap but delicious middle east food in Helsinki.

Fafa's is a great place for vegetarians - quite a few options and the food is absolutely amazing. I'm guessing lots of foreign customers visit the place since we only heard the friendly staff speak English :) The place was quite packed but we managed to get a table. People come and go quite quickly since you get your food... More

Really tasty falafel and halloumi Pitts. Difficult to eat and a bit messy but so tasty. Shop is tiny with seating for about 10. Lots of people just seemed to get take out

Truly the best falafel in Helsinki! The halloumi and falafel pitta is a favourite as well as the vegan falafel pitta. I go here regularly and am never disappointed with the quality or size of the food. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff and several great central locations. Perfect for a quick bite on your own or with friends. Most pittas around... More

I've heard so much good about Fafa's, so i was eager to try it out myself. Ordered the cauliflower pita, and was disappointed; it had this very strong bitter taste, and it had too much chili so all i could taste was this bitter taste and chili. Also too expensive compared to the ingredients used in the food.

Tiny Lebanese bistro/take away. The food was fresh and deliciously prepared. Everything is kept very simple and they have a rather small card. This is more a spot for a quick snack/lunch, not really a place to dwell and unwind. Service was very friendly and helpful!
