According to Al Jazeera, "since the restaurant began offering the deal on Oct. 13, manager Kobi Tzafri said it has been a success, and the restaurant served three tables with Arabs and Jews on the first day alone."

In a Facebook post translated from Hebrew to English by The Independent reads:

And Jewish, excellent praiseworthy falafel with free refill on every hummus, whether you're Arabs, Jews, Christians or Indians." type="quote" author="Facebook post" authordesc="The Independent" isquoteoftheday="false"%
