Quick grub for veggies in the city center.

If you are tired, hungry and not in a mood to sit down and get ripped off for mediocre food near the city centre - Head over to this place. Falafel wraps, freshly made and a whole bunch of fillings. This is sooooooo much better than those crappy McDonalds and Burger Kings which don't even... read more

Visited their branch (beside the Manneken Pis fries shop) a couple of times. Guess that's their more popular branch. Good stuff if you are looking for a vegetarian option with your choice of unlimited toppings. They even have spicy, mint and chilly chutneys to add the zest to your falafel. Just hope they maintain their buffet counter well..they need to... More

Awesome falafel, for a really cheap price and high quality. Vegans are welcome too. Their Tahini souce are amazing, you can eat a lot of fress veggies and olives too that is in the price.

Went here twice in 2 days. Service was pretty slow on both days. Recommend staff get customer service training, they need it. I saw one of the staff wiping the counter then washing hands and then throwing a piece of veg in the counter back into the buffet, DISGUSTING. They got my order wrong on both days and because they...

This was the first place I had Falafel. I like to get ALL THE THINGS i.e. every salad, find a corner to hide in and get messy! Enjoy. Beats the horse meat in some of the vending machines anyday!

So very tasty and inexpensive! Perfect as a quick grab-to-eat stop. It is vegan-friendly. It offers you refills of veggies and sauces if your falafels are too dry in the middle. The staff is very friendly.

This place is not posh, it has hardly any seating, no rapport with the staff, and you get bumped around a bit....but wow it's great! The falafel is so good it's made me vow never to buy supermarket falafel ever again. A generous ultra tasty portion literally fresh out the fryer (as they're just about keeping up with demand as...

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
