What Our Customers Say?

“The best falafel in Gainesville!!! I went here for lunch and had the shawarma platter. It was so delicious. The rice was so packed with flavor, the beef perfectly cooked and seasoned, the salad so fresh and nutritious, the falafel so perfect, and the sauces were so yummy. This will be in my regular rotation for sure. The proprietor, Ehab, really takes pride in his restaurant and really cares for the customer. You can really tell that he makes the food with love. Furthermore, the service is so fast and fresh. Love this place!”
Paula Purpera
“Amazing! The food is high quality and delicious. I end up getting the pita gyro and it’s filling, I prefer it over the gyro wrap with the thinner bread because the pita is more filling and tastes great! I always have been treated well here, the owner always greets us well. THIS is what I call good customer service and I wish other halal restaurants good have that. I’m sad the brother from Jordan will be selling his restaurant. I hope the new owners can keep this level of quality and good customer service. I will visit under new ownership and update my review accordingly.”
Sam S
“Amazing!!! The food is juicy and cooked to perfection. You can tell they put a lot of thought and effort into every ingredient of the recipes. The staff is super friendly and attentive and the prices are great for the amount of food we got. The rice here is the best I’ve tried in my life!!! I’ll definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. I just wish it was closer to my house.”
