Lots of places sell falafel etc. but this truly was the best food we had during our stay in Israel. Kept trying different places but this one beat them all. Highly recommend.

This is a great place, with wonderful food and character. Seating is mostly outdoor. Be aware, though, that despite the informality it is not cheap. Four Shwarmas and 2 beers was 150 sheks.

Just didn't get it. my food choices are limited I know in regards my healthy eating meal plan but it just din't do it for me on any level not at all. and my friend had all the usual foods and he felt the same. so many better places to eat. confused why this scores so high on trip advisor.

Definitively one of the best Falafel/Hummus-locations I have visited so far. Gratis Falafel appetizers were offered while waiting in line, excellent price-performance-ratio, delicious food, enough space to sit in- or outside.

We loved everything we ordered and came back 3 times. The line moves quick! The Jaffa shawarma is huge and every bite is bliss! The hummus is incredible, we ended up taking it to go for snacking all day and it was the best decision ever!

This Kosem is for the street food what Apple Store on the fifth avenue is for electronics stores. The masterpiece. The most fresh vegetables and ingredients will make it to your plate/lafa/pita and while you are waiting in line (there is always a line) a friendly cook will offer you a ball of falafel. Cause that's what they do. Choose... More

Very well situated at the center of the city with several buses deserving it from/to the city and the periphery. Freshly Israeli and Middle East meals in very large portions-take this into account when you are accompanied by children- cooked on the spot in view of the customers Not expensive

Everything here is great. Either for a quick on-the-go falafel/shawarma/sabich or for sitting down and having combination plates or shakshuka.

Ordered the falafel, schnitzel and shawarma. All delicious!!!! When they found out we were from NYC they gave us extra felafel and fried eggplant. Fast. Delicious. Great sauces. Highly recco for traditional local food! Wish i had gone back more than once.
