Great food, great service, great music, and fantastic view of Kailua Bay. We love the atmosphere and authentic Middle Eastern grinds. The fresh pita bread is a must.

Could not decide what to have for a light dinner upon arrival and had already had the gut bomb L & L lunch that day. I had the falafel and loved it. The falafel itself is made on premise and is authentic and a little thicker than what I'm used to. The spicy Harif accompaniment was excellent and turns out to be the grandmothers recipe from Israel.
Great friendly staff and great food. Kosher establishment.

Had the falafel plate and it was a boatload of food, hope they do not change the quantity in the future.

Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Service was wonderful. Atmosphere delightful--where else can you hear Israeli pop music while watching the sun set over Kona Bay?

We stopped in one day on a whim, and are sure we've stumbled onto one to best spots in Kona. The restaurant is small and very casual, located across Ali'i from the waterfront. It has a great view of the water, with superb people-watching. Our group was made up of mostly vegetarians, and we ordered falafel salads, a falafel pita and a combo, which were all great, and perfectly seasoned. We really liked the habanero pepper relish, but be forewarned: it is very hot. The service was laid-back island-style, but there was no wait for a table or for our order, and our server was very attentive. We really enjoyed this unexpected surprise in the heart of Kona.
