nice falafal at Atlantic and 4th ave

Just had a very nice falafal sandwich at a Middle Eastern lunch place on Atlantic just before 4th Ave as your heading toward Flatbush. The place is called "Paradise" or something. The decor (and the cleanliness of the dining room) is late Di Fara's, and it was bustling with Arabic-speaking people at about 3 this afternoon. Service very friendly. Bread is nothing special--from a bag--but not bad either. The falafal was very fresh-tasting, as were all the fixings. If you ask the guy behind the counter to make it spicy, he'll throw in some pickled jalapenos--nice touch. People were eating what looked to be a very good dish of grilled chicken leg with an orange-ish rice side. To make references to to two recent heated threads, I wouldn't want to bring wine in there, but i did feel quite comfortable in casual dress.
