Delicious falafel

Myself and my partner both ordered the falafel plate and it was delicious! Friendly, quick service. Vegan options. Big servings. Reasonably priced. The homemade lemonade was amazing! Sooo refreshing. Highly recommend if you are staying in playa del Carmen!

I went to Falafel Nessya and had the best falafel I have ever had in my life! Everything was so fresh and tasted absolutely delicious. My boyfriend has had lots of falafel and he too said that this was the best he's ever had. Nessya, who owns the restaurant, is wonderful and bright and charming. I would recommend it to... More

I was never expecting to find falafel in Playa del Carmen, but happened to be walking on 5th ave and noticed this small little place and decided to give it a try... Definitely the best I've ever had I would highly recommend to give it a try and I know you will not be disappointed.

Visited on 06/12 right after opening. We were greeted very warmly by the owners and treated as friends. Ordered all items on the menu to sample. The falafel was simply the best I have ever eaten. You can tell they are made with care. You cannot go wrong with a quick stop for lunch.

Falafel Nessaya is hardly a restaurant. It is tucked away on a side street and has a couple of tables in a very small roadside unit......however go out and look for it. The falafel is good authentic home made food and some of the best I have eaten. You get a choice of 3 styles of dishes and we tried... More

It seems crazy to find falafel in Mexico but thanks to Israeli transplants, Playa deal Carmen is able to taste the real deal. There is a difference in falafel recipes and this one made me feel as if I were back in Tel Aviv. It is a small restaurant with seating for 10 maximum with lots of fans and free... More

Best falafel ever and made with tlc. The staff were also so sweet and efficient and friendly. They clearly the pride in what they make/serve and deserve the excellent reviews which led us to this little gem of a place. It's basic and they offer just a few simple items/combinations on the menu but do it oh so well and... More

Was reading there great reviews on TA about this place so went to try their Falafel sandwich. It really ia as good as everyone says it is . The pita is the best, soft and fresh. It's the real deal. Friendly service too. Definitely worth checking out for a quick meal or snack.
