Best Falafel Ever! We finally made it out for lunch and the only disappointment was we were late and the two we wanted to try were sold out! Selected the Bangkok and Bombay. Great 2nd choice. Full of flavour, crispy but soft n fluffy falafels....Be careful with the Chile sauce. It’s Hot. Will be back soon to try our first choice.More

Believe me when i say that these are delightful and best falafel i've had in NZ. They are full of flavour. Home made breads, spices and pickles. Falafels were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Nice little spot to eat too. Bit...hard to find - go down a small walkway and its at the end.More

The food was sooooo delicious we are going back every day until we leave Tauranga. Thank you Yali for a very memorable lunch. Your professionalism and smile were a delight to behold.

3 or 4 items on the menu, but what they do tastes really good. Service wasn't the quickest considering the food type offered but otherwise good and worth revisiting

All they serve is falafel and that is what is brilliant about this cafe. The owners are friendly and enthusiastic about their product. Lots of clientele fro local businesses. The falafel are crunchy and creamy, how? The sauces and salad absolutely divine.

This place feels like a secret spot. It’s down an alley & only open during the week but it is a must for any falafel lover. It’s fresh, family run and always consistent even when busy! Love it when I get a chance to grab...a bite from here! Highly recommend :)More

Beautifully cooked and well presented. Lovely falafel which was tasty and filling . Would benefit from offering coffee. Could do with more places to sit.
