    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.

    This is a great spot for vegetarians! I always get the small falafel whole wheat sandwich. Highly recommend to add roasted eggplant and garlic cream. When starving get some great fries!

    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!!

    Get a bowl with the pita on the side. "But Keri, I want a sandwich!" Fine, but you're gonna overfill your sandwich at the start of the topping bar and by the end, you'll wish you'd gotten the bowl.

    Amazing falafel, another great 'when Europe meets Middle East' fusion food. Salad toppings are also great-not to mention the curry ketchup! You can order either in a bowl or sandwich also.

    The falafel comes tricked out with toppings from both Middle Eastern & Dutch traditions, & the menu features Dutch-style fries covered in Dutch mayo, peanut "saus," malt vinegar or Old Bay seasoning. Read more

    I've been here many times, and it is hands down the best falafel stop I've found so far. I prefer their falafel over the kind I got in the Middle East! 😍

    The falafel itself is delicious, cumin-scented, crisp on the outside, and properly cooked on the inside. But it’s the varied toppings bar that makes this the best falafel sandwich in town, Read more

    A very unique take on falafel - salad bar style "pick your falafel toppings". Amazing/delicious selection of toppings, however, their pita bread is a weird shape & awkward to fill and eat. Go bowl.

    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.

    Definitely get the bowl, it's easier and tasty. You also get more toppings that way. Pickled cauliflower is good too.

    The falafel is so, so delicious. So is the pita, and so are the frites. With peanut sauce and curry ketchup for delectable dipping.

    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!

    Try either size on whole wheat. Nice and substantial pita. My favorite toppings include the yogurt sauce and cucumber salad

    Excellent stuff. Love the do-it-yourself toppings bar. Just means you'll need to keep going back to perfect the taste. No complaints here!

    Their regular and large sizes is the same size pita. Get the small if you want more from the salad bar.

    Awesome falafel-face-sandwiches. Remember that in order to consider the meal successful at least 30% of all toppings must stay on the face.

    Definitely go for the bowl. The sandwich just can't contain all the toppings you'll want to pile on.

    Eh. If you want real falafel go to Remi's in Coolidge Corner. Build it yourself pita/salad bar.
