Description: In the heart of Wadi Nisnas – standing opposite each other – are two falafel establishments that have been competing for years. A comprehensive market survey we carried out gave micheal the lead over its rival, and we set off to earn our falafel. If the line is long, you’ll get a falafel ball dipped in tehina – to keep you going. You can polish off your portion, without too many salads or fuss, by the wooden counter that runs around the room, or eat it while roaming the nearby streets. The balls are well seasoned and the tehina is superb. That’s the way it is – if you’ve been in the business a while you learn a thing or two.The secret: the street battle heritage.

After over twenty years of eating at Micheal's, I can promise you: there is no bwttwe falafel in all of Israel. Period.

very friendly staff, fresh ingredients, the owners and her whole family engaged in a conversation with us. we could really feel like we are part of a busy work day there, their friends and relatives all came by while we were there, local people ate there as well so we didn't feel like we are in a touristy place at all, even though it was a big help that everyone spoke English very well.

Wonderful falafel and real Middle east hospitality. Great salatim and olives. The coffee (Arabic) was the best I had in Israel.

Don't believe the hype. It's good falafel, sure - but no better than any good falafel in Haifa or Israel at large. A hole in the wall, this place is designed for a quick bite on the go, not for lingering and savouring. Good natured owner serves golden crispy falafel while you decide what to have (as if there's any doubt) and the price is right too. Check out the Arabic market round the corner on weekdays.

If you are in Haifa, you MUST drop by Felafel Hwadi Michael which is walking distance from the Bahai Temple and the German Colony below it. It is a clean, small, "hole-in-the-wall" place with barely enough space to cook and serve the most delicious felafel I have ever eaten. Where other restaurant are you given a sample to eat before deciding that you want to order? And it is a bargain too! Open continuously until 8:30 PM.
