This is a none distinct establishment based on it's location but don't let that fool you. The interior is VERY basic with maybe ten tables, you help yourself to the drinks which are kept in three refrigerators next to the kitchen area which is in plain site for the patrons to observe. The service was friendly and very courteous, they... More

And fresh fruit juices to go with great falafel sandwiches. Also, dolmas are freshly made and warm. All reasonably priced. The flavors on the hot sauce takes the cake though.

Don't let the strip mall location fool you - this is an amazing little place serving authentic Mediterranean food. The owner greeted us warmly and helped us to make the right selections from the menu. We started with the house salad, which was nicely prepared with a light, refreshing dressing. The hummus was delicate and flavorful. From the appetizers, the... More

Excellent gyro. For 6 bucks, enough meat and other good things to feed 2. And delicious. Spicy but not burning. Order your meal at the counter and they bring it to you at your table. A lot better and fresher than pre-cooked burgers. Have a gyro and be stuffed until you go to bed.

This is a sit down, family owned small restaruant. The service is polite. The atmosphere is simple and clean. The food is delicious. Orders are placed at the counter and brought to your table. The falafel and hummus are excellent.

I have only had the takeout, but it always arrives on time and it hot and delicious. I usually order the shish kabab platter - and also sides of humus. The meat is tender and seasoned well. The order of humus was huge and we enjoyed it for 2 days. I have had no complaints about King Falafel, my son... More

This little place is easy to miss tucked into the end of a small stripmall on an old NJ highway, but it's worth searching for. The atmosphere is strictly "pizza parlor modern" with bright neon lighting and non-descript tables and chairs. But the food I've had there is the best I've had of its kind. The falafel pita sandwich is... More
