This was my first falafel sandwich, so I will leave it to others that say this is one of the best. All I can say is that it was delicious. A wide variety of fresh toppings and sauces are also provided. I also had fries with mayo that were very good. You can't get more Dutch than that combo these... More

This is exactly what one expects when ordering a falafel, fill the pita with your choice of veggies and you're done. There is seating in front of this take-away which is fine in the summer months. Thanks fellow Trip advisors for this one.

Their website states they are open until 23:00 during the summer. Arrived just before 22:00 only to be told they were closed. A bit frustrating. I was not the only one turned away and when the couple ahead of me indicated the hours posted on their site, they got an "oh well" shrug.

We enjoyed our Falafel sandwiches ... The sauces to put on your sandwich were delicious. Everything is fresh and you get to pick and "self stuff" your falafel sandwhich from among a nice fresh variety of veggies/rice/beans and more! We will go back!

All products are freshly made. Normally I am not a big take away fan, but this is an outstanding alternative. Falafel and fries would be a star offer for any restaurant. I went here a few times and the quality is consistently high. Wider range of good quality sauces for the fries. Previous reviewer mentioned the carrots. Definitely hot, but... More

Decent food, not much variety but enough for fast food. Decent price for the city of amsterdam (nothing is cheap). Not friendly service, as a tourist i felt some hostility(it was the only place where i felt that in Amsterdam).

I really liked sonny' falafel with pita and aubergine sauce! It was so tasty, filling and delicious! You can choose as many toppings as you want and it is just so so good! Quite cheap for Amsterdam as I'm finding Amsterdam quite expensive, even more expensive than London. I'll try their fries tomorrow, everything is vegetarian which is good for... More

I happened to be at Amsterdam city center and to eat in Sonny Falafel. The quality of food was excellent BUT one of the two persons working there was totally impolite and brute. I decided next day not to go there for the simple reason that I did not like his attitude and the way he was speaking and behaving... More
