Owners and friends Naftaly Stramer and Ofer Sivan created Oasis the Falafel Joint in the summer of 2004. After meeting for lunch in downtown Iowa City, the duo lamented that (at the time) falafel was nowhere to be found and vowed to right this wrong. Naftaly had just left the tech industry and Ofer had just completed his degree in engineering – an unlikely starting place for what would become the world’s best hummus, falafel and fries.

“I can’t begin to explain how much I love Oasis! Seriously changed the way I view pita sandwiches. The falafel is perfection, the product is on point, the salad bar is just icing on the cake.” — Sami, Yelp

“I LOVE Oasis. I don’t know that I’ve ever had better falafel. I don’t even know what else to say, except that you should eat here, and you should eat here a lot, and you should hope that any time you’re at an event that’s being catered that Oasis is the caterer.” — Haley, Yelp

My wife and I went to Iowa City for a workshop and were very surprised by the town and its food options. We read that the Oasis Falafel is one of the must-go places, so we decided to give it a shot. These guys make the best falafel, pita and hummus we have ever tried! We were so amazed that even drove back through Iowa City just to get 4 more their insanely delicious falafel and veggie sandwiches. — Kamewa, Yelp

“Oh god, this place is the reason I’m glad I don’t live in downtown Iowa City. I would order out every night. I buy so much of their hummus at Hy-Vee its ridiculous, and I eat it straight out of the container with a spoon. Seriously go there, eat falafel, and be happy, becuase your tummy will be.” — Lauren, Yelp
