Same great flavor in every bite of the best falafel I have eaten in the US. Friendly and fast service. No frill seating and casual ambience. Rest of the options are also very popular. We are happy this great option is available to us nearby.

Best in San Jose. My go-to meal is a falafel, fries, and a banana shake. The mural is awesome as it tells the history of San Jose so beautifully. Absolutely the best falafel around.

Great falafel at a reasonable price. I love their sauce and the chili paste. They have the special that includes a falafel and a banana milkshake. The line is usually long during lunch hours, specially on the weekend.
