If you show up :45 minutes before closing time they will only serve you take out. This is a horrible practice and poor customer service. It's fast food it doesn't take that long to eat. On top of that, in your rush to remove chairs...More

Really nice kabobs with the accompanying hummis and felafels. The ingredients are fresh and the meats are well prepared. Conveniently located on South Lake near Del Mar. Good food.

Freshly made and very well made. The person on the till was very helpful in explaining the details before I ordered. Their Humus was even better than many restaurants in middle east . Garlic & chili paste further added the fun to felafel's. Highly recommended.
