A quick meal out

I came here after meeting a couple of friends for a quick bite to eat. The food was kebab house fayre but done a little better. The vegetarian choices were good and the food was plentiful and filling and at a good price.

Nestled among the increasingly trendy shisha clubs and restaurants is a dimly lit sign reading simply 'falafel'. Most people would dismiss it as a dirty, divey takeaway. Most people are wrong. My Lebanese fiancé has regularly described it as the best falafel outside of Beirut. Fresh, well made and ludicrously cheap. Don't miss out.

This is a very friendly, easy going cafe. Food is plentiful, as would be expected from any authentic MIddle Eastern eatery, and I enjoyed the mint tea. The food, though plentiful, was pretty average, the tabbouleh too bitter and fibrous. I would eat here again but to be honest far better prepared, and tastier fare from this region can be... More

Very good falafel, great value for money and the service is quick. The falafel wrap for £2.50 is the perfect lunch.

Ok lets clear things up, theres restaurants and there are eateries that serve some of the best food in manchester and this is the latter. There is no pretence here they serve a selection of arabic foods that use much of the same salad items with either falafel, chicken shawarma or lamb. A chicken shawarma meal at £4.50 is superb...

I enjoyed a chicken shawarma meal - for only £4.50 I had a pile of chicken, chips, humus, roti, and tons of salad, as well as a lovely pot of mint tea.

We visited this place with the hope of having nice food after reading misleading comments in here. We left disappointed by the food and disgusted by the hygiene level of the restaurant. Just to give you an idea, the dirty toilet had no toilet paper and soap. We now fear for our health as others reported feeling ill for some... More

We went to falafel for the first time last week, just had a falafel portion to share between 2 and 1 can of juice as we were going somewhere else for kebabs! It was amazing and came to £3.10! So so tasty, the falafels were fresh, the salad, hummus, pickles and bread that came with them were so tasty. We... More
