  • The falafel itself is delicious, cumin-scented, crisp on the outside, and properly cooked on the inside. But its the varied toppings bar that makes this the best falafel sandwich in town,
  • Do yourself a favor and get some curry ketchup with those fries!!!
  • They accept Euros! So if you have some lying around from your last trip...
  • The regular size falafel sandwich, loaded with fresh delicious toppings from the salad bar, is a steal. Add an order of the amazing fries and don't miss the curry ketchup!!
  • For the love of God, get the curry ketchup with your fritten!!!
  • Definitely get the bowl, it's easier and tasty. You also get more toppings that way. Pickled cauliflower is good too.
  • Awesome falafel-face-sandwiches. Remember that in order to consider the meal successful at least 30% of all toppings must stay on the face.
  • Incredible falafel, with all kinds of very tasty salads to stuff on top. Amazing.

  • go for a bowl instead of a sandwich. less messy and easier to get the toppings on. very good falafel--it's not rami's, but it's the closest we'll get this side of the river.
  • Self-serve so you pile that salad, baby! That eggplant was so, so, so great. Storeis mapped out reminiscing Amstel - makes me miss the beautiful Dutch city so much!

  • They accept euros here and will give you change back in US dollars
  • Beat falafel in 200+ mile radius. Load up on the fried eggplant.
  • Their regular and large sizes is the same size pita. Get the small if you want more from the salad bar.
  • Only 2 items on the menu (falafel, fries) and they're both excellent. The falafel sandwiches are build your own, with 20 or so toppings to choose from, all great. Delicious, filling, and cheap food.
