If you want to experience a good Middle-Eastern food, this is the place. Even though, it takes a few minutes to get your food ready- as there is only one person to take your order, make your order and pay your order. Over the period of time, this is also getting expensive (compared to the other Mediterranean eat-outs). However, the... More

Tasty middle-eastern dishes like falafel with fresh ingredients located right next to Pike Place Market. Limited counter and outdoor seating.

Quick food at good prices. Not much of a place to sit. You can grad a seat at the eating bar and watch the comings and going of the showgirls "nightclub" across the street. There are a couple of tables outside as well. Otherwise plan of taking your food elsewhere. Food was good and well priced.

We stopped here for lunch and had a gyro and a chicken Schawarma and it was so good and absolutely fair price considering being located so close to the pike place market.

Get out of the overcrowded Pike Place district and move up the hill a block....1at Avenue has so many great restaurants. Falafel King lured us in the door with the brilliant aroma or shawarma. Great authentic dishes prepared on the spot...quick, clean, efficient. Tables set up outdoors on street. A couple of seats available at a counter inside. Overall very... More

If you'd like to sit down outside for a bite, the location is perfect! Directly next to Pike Place Market. There is seating outside and about 3 stools inside, very small place however the chicken sandwich and falafel's are extremely delicious. The guy that cooks is very friendly and remembers me whenever I pass by or come in for a... More

We are gyro fans and these are the best we've ever had! Flavor in every single bite. Plenty of goodies, plenty of sauce, and the meat is really spicy and SO good. Every time we come to Pike Place Market, we talk about trying something new but we always end up here. If ain't broke, don't fix it! These are... More
