The Best Shwarma and Falafel In The City of Atlanta
Don't just take our word for it, listen what our customers have to say about it!
Atlanta Journal Constitution: I am at Pita Palace, where until recently I was a virgin to the experience that I’ve been hearing about for a while now. The place is tiny and a bit run down in appearance, but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. On my first visit the whole restaurant, which is about the size of a PODS storage unit, wafted of musky lamb meat emanating from a beguiling shawarma rotisserie that resides behind the counter. About every two minutes, an electric knife whirs and buzzes across the surface of the shwarma slicing off little meat shavings. -
Yelp: "As wonderful as the falafel is, I am always seduced by the shwarma. To the uninitiated, shwarma is marinated chicken, cooked slowly on a spit until It's completely succulent, whereupon slivers of the meat are stuffed into a fresh pita. The shwarma forms some kind of a synergy with the delicious hummus, tahini, and optional fresh, homemade hot sauce (it's called "harif" in Hebrew-- this is the real deal. Timid American palates get the smoky baba ganoush instead). Last time I went I actually noticed two types of harif: North African-style, made from fresh red chilis, and Yemeni-style, made from green chilis. Get both if you dare."
Creative Loafing: "It took several drives past Pita Palace to realize it had opened since I'd first seen the "opening soon" sign half a year ago. Granted, I passed by during off-peak hours, but the kosher eatery always looked a little dark, uninhabited and unfinished. Two delicious..."
"I think Pita Palace has incredibly good food. It's reasonably priced considering the quality of the food. The Shwarma is fantastic there... very good portion sizes. It feels just like my other favorite shwarma place on Ben Yehuda in Jerusalem. I have been going for years and years, introducing friends to this place and everyone always wants to go back for more..."
"I just discovered pita palace. best falafel in town! soft herby flavorful...not dry and carrying only the flavor of the grease it was cooked in like the other falafel shops in town.
A half falafel pocket it like $3.50! Super cheap. The half doesn't leave you stuffed, but then there are 4 size options, so just get the full pocket or the laffa (which looks sooooo good, even though I haven't tasted it.
This shop feels like israel, which i love oh so much, too."
Yelp: Amazing! I've only been here a handful of times, but the guy at the counter is always super friendly and funny and he treats you like you're his best friend.
