Oase gets my thumbs up - huge portions, great sauces and extra scharf is amazing!

Even better there is the Mariyumi-Teller, it's like paradise on a plate :]
Have you ever gone back to the hotel from a great night out, full of joy and good memories? And then you realize you didn't eat too much in between all those beers and drinks? You are hungry as a bricklayer at the end of a long shift.
This is the situation I found myself in - at 2am, knowing nothing about locating edible stuff in Berlin at this time of night. Across the street was an all night kiosk, but the thought of eating candy or biscuits just didn't do it for me. And then it miraculously happened - around the corner came a beautiful girl, clearly enjoying her kebab. Sauce on her cheeks, happiness in her eyes, and oblivious to her surroundings. And I knew. I turned the corner and moved like a lion smelling meat - and found an oasis, named Oase. Full of people it was, full of choices and offering friendly and fast service.
Mouthwatering I navigated through the questionnaire that eventually resulted in a great Kebab that I devoured while enjoying the lively place. Everything homemade, everything hot or cold as it should be. One of the tricks to make a good kebab is to alternate between content, e.g. a little salad, then a little meat, then a few tomatoes, then a little sauce, then salad again, then meat, etc. until it is full. That way, the taste is the same throughout the eating experience. Trick of the trade, but not everybody knows.
Yes, you say, but you were hungry and drunk, so what good is that for a review? I agree. But I went back in the bright daylight and tasted another one, and it was just as awesome as the one I had the night before.
Awesome luck for me, awesome food from Oase.
I used to walk by this place all the time, but just happened to stop in by chance with a friend one evening. It was the best decision I have made in a long time!
The falafel was absolutely incredible. Freshly made, seasoned beautifully, and the sauces just complimented it to perfection.
I'm sure somebody will be able to tell us where there is even better falafel...but at this moment I couldn't recommend anywhere better!
This place has the absolute best falafel I can find in Friedrichshain. You could say I'm a bit of a falafel snob, and I tried a lot of places. This guy knows how to do it right. four sauces included and wrapped correctly so that it really works as a street food without getting messy. The falafel itself is perfectly seasoned and has far more flavor than other places. Yes, falafel is actually supposed to taste like something. The owner is Palestinian, which helps to explain why his food is superior to all the other (Turkish) places around. Do yourself a favor and taste what falafel is SUPPOSED to taste like. I've now tried the shawarma, hummus and tabouli and all of it is fantastic! Honestly it's the best shawarama i've ever had. Just because it's an imbiss doesn't mean it can't be good.
