I might be hated for this given all the amazing reviews, but, is it the best falafel I've ever had? No. Is it still pretty amazingly delicious? Yes! There was a line but it went by pretty fast. I was told that sometimes the line is like half an hour. One of the guys takes your order right in line... More

Don;t be put off by the long line. It moves quickly. The falafels were great: generous portion, quite tasty. Rue de Rossiers is a great street. Sit down outside on a step or curb, enjoy your food, do some people watching. It's nice way to pass some time and re-fuel.

This place is just awesome. The falafel is out of this world- they have so many different combinations. There is always such a long line outside this place but do not be foled- thy serve everyone quickly and efficiently and again--IF you enjoy falafel- it is worth making it a stop on your trip!

Heaven for veggies, must eat falafel from this place. Falafel and lot of fillings is given inside pita bread. Makes you so full. Each falafel costs 6 euro. The place is so famous that you will always see a rush here. It opens after 12 pm. The place is near Saint Paul metro station le marais in M1 line.

When it comes to felafels, this is as good as as it gets. Long lines, long waits, but in the end it worth however long it was. We always get the spicy sauce on ours and find that one is enough to share between us. Even if you don't go for the food, go for the experience. Watching the touts... More

It really is the best fallafel I've ever had and the Jewish quarter in the marais is a very lovely area. Really a must if you're in the area and enjoy fallafels. No frills, delicious.

Anyone with a health conscious diet knows how difficult it is to eat well cheaply in some of the world's most expensive cities. One outstanding choice in Paris is L'as du Fallafel on rue des Rosiers, in the center of Le Marais district. It was late June when I happened upon this delicious and inexpensive alternative. Lines had formed and... More

We went for lunch here based on all the hype of it having the best falafel in in the world. We were skeptical, since we've had falafel all over the world and had very good falafel in Israel and Turkey. We weren't led astray. This place HAS the best falafel in the world!!! I was surprised and pleased. Portions were... More

Awesome! You guys should try this place. You can easily find it because of the huge line sometimes you have to do to eat, but it is worth it (even because you can pay while standing in line, to get it easier!). Metro stop St. Paul, line 1. A friend of mine took me here the first time, then, every... More

This is almost a hole-in-the-wall eating place. Nestled in the Jewish section of Paris's Marais ( 3rd ), this unpretentious eat-in/ fast food is worth a stop. I had the falafel ( probably the best I ever had ! ) at a table< it was raining outside >. Very fast, priced right...it did the job, after a long morning walk... More
