Downtown located very small pita restaurant. Fresh pita's. Not best pitas what I have eaten. Small minuses: no cleaned tables or staff dont care about it. And bottles at table no filled up with water (gotta Ask that too).

Wow, impressive how I disliked my kebab. I do not know what they put in, but it was basically a bad tasting semi-warm hamburger with bitter coleslaw and other disgusting ingredients. After 2 bites I threw it away. My girlfriend liked her chicken kebab, but I tried it and the chicken was very dry and tasteless. So I guess it... More

I'm a regular here. I've probably eaten here about 50 times. Would I be coming back if it weren't so good? Staff can be a little bit unprofessional at times but no big deal.

I lived in Helsinki for almost 2 years. It's hard to believe but, generally speaking, forget to find a good kebab in this city! (this review is about the Kabab, I did not try the falafel) With regards to Fafas: ok if you are into the weird concept of having fancy&healthy fast-food. Actually, they really do a good job in...

This is a nice place to grab a fast sandwich with good quality ingredients. Still the cost is around 10 euro but probably you cannot find much cheaper than that in Finland :) Both meat and vegetarian options available so everyone can find something of their liking

There are multiple locations of Fafa's in Helsinki, and with good reason. The falfal is delicious, as are the vegetables, humus, and chile they put alongside it in the pita. A great way to take a brake from Finnish fare while in Helsinki.

We ordered the chicken pitas and thought they were extremely bland and tasteless. While there were a lot of ingredients, none of them seemed to influence the taste in a meaningful way. We waited for about 20 minutes for a take away order. I definitely would not eat here again.

The hype about Fafa's is huge in Finland at the moment (and has been for a while now), and the reviews you hear are usually very good, so our expectations were really high! Fafa's is rather trendy and unique, but the staff seemed to be very busy and tense. The woman at the cashier didn't smile once and didn't make... More

Fafa´s chain of restaurants is very popular. There are new outlets i.e. in the WTC building and in Kamppi shopping center. There was a recent overview and vote among customers and restaurant critics about the best falafel restaurant in Helsinki. The result was curious: among customers, Fafa´s falafel was voted the best. Among restaurant critics, Fafa´s falafel came last. It... More
