A true stop, and go (and MUST) in Le Marais! If you can snatch a table outside then, lucky you but if not (like me) grab and go, join the rest as you walk around Le Marais with your faffafel in your hand. The choices are pretty simple, fallafel or fallafel, you can't go wrong! I like mine with a... More

There's a reason this restaurant has its own Wikipedia article (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27As_du_Fallafel). It's because the falafels are amazing. The waiting line moves at an incredible pace. When we got there, there were about 15 people waiting in line and we were about to give up. Five minutes later we were in the restaurant. If you're into spicy food, try their hot... More

No, not on purpose but this was part of a walking tour of the Marais Jewish Quarter. I must say it was some surprise to walk into the busy junction of small streets and see a crowd of people waiting to be fed. Apparently they sell 800 falafels a day just from the street kiosk whilst the reasonably large restaurant... More

Was lucky enough to grab a quick lunch here last week - cant fault the fallafel special pita cram packed full of lovely goodies - the atmosphere was busy but friendly and will definitely be back again.....

Friendly staff, good atmosphere and food so tasteful we'll make a point of returning next time we're in Paris... what else could we ask for?

This place is hyped up in guidebooks - but in fact the felafel was yummy; it reminded us of the ones in Israel. The line was not too bad and the prices were OK by Paris standards. Worth a visit!

This was the most remarkable meal I had in Paris... surprisingly good for only 5 euros. Hot fallafels with very fresh salad and an incredible sauce in the pitta bread. It is meant to be eaten standing in the street and thanking for the great experience and taste of this treat. Give yourself a gift... go there and be happy!!!

This place really does serve the best falafels outside of Jaffa and Jerusalem. Yes, it's hectic but they are so well organised that, however long the queue, you won't have long to wait for total satisfaction!

Long line but it moves quickly. 10-15 minute wait gets you the best falafel in town! Take it to eat at a nearby parc to enjoy. Delicious!

We have been here many times and every time we are in the Marais we make a point of having their excellent falafel. Yes there are lineups from the time they open to the evening but if you get there at 8:30Pm it starts to die down. I know that sounds funny but when you have a great product and... More
