Really amazing falafel, but you already knew that! There's a reason that this place doesn't need hawkers, unlike other spots on this street. Also, the line to sit down moves quickly if you're inclined to rest your weary feet for a bit, as we were!

I think the hype about this place is bigger than the reality. After we eat here we had a look at the other places on offer and their menus and ambience seemed better. The food is expensive, the portions are good and the food is tasty - but as I said the menu is more limited and the ambience not... More

I found this place to be quite fun. It's a scene, for sure. Outside, there's usually a lineup and just generally frenetic activity for some reason. We had no problem getting a table a little after noon, but it seems to get busier as the day goes on. Inside, if you decide to eat inside, is something out of a... More

Yummy. Pricey. Is everything pricey in Paris? Probably yes. Priceyness was aside, I thought this was one of the yummiest felafel I've ever had. Felafel balls were crunchy on the outside, moist in inside. Good salad and condiment ratio.

We were brought here by friends who had been here on their previous trip, who loved it so much they returned. The line looks intimidatingly long, but moves very quickly. The falafel did not disappoint. Large portions and great food for the price. Obviously most people come for the falafel, but I think I liked the shawerma even more! We... More

They proudly display their Tripadvisor rating in the window. There was a huge lineup when everyone else around didn't look busy. The take out counter has a line too. We decided to sit and the man outside insisted the line was less than 10min. He was right! The place is nothing to look at and there's only 3 guys serving... More

I find it funny that this was my favorite place in France due to the fact its not French. There was a crowd outside and it began to rain. The owner came outside and handed out umbrellas which was great. They had by far the best falafel I've ever had. Lenny Kravitz is also a big fan of this restaurant... More

There is a reason why all the guide books rave about this place on this street of Falafel. You pay a man while lining up , hand it to another dude (who I always tip) behind the window and in a few moments are given Falafel bliss wrapped in Pita bliss. Thats it , end of story.

It took us a few laps around the neighborhood to find this place after a long day in Paris. We have easy access to a few good places in NYC including Taim so we wanted to try this place. Like so many before us, expectations were high but were instantly met. You get a pita filled with a few differing... More

My wife and I ate lunch here on our trip to Paris. We almost didn't go inside because it doesn't look so nice from the outside, but we were so happy we did! The food was simply amazing. I have had falafel in a few different countries and tons of restaurants and this is without a doubt the best I... More
