While staying in Sultanhmet we decided to go over to see Taxim Square and have a bite of lunch. Close by on a restaurant lined street you will find Falafel House.

This place is very small. Looked like a mom and pop restaurant. Helpful staff. Have sitting inside and outside. They have about 4 - 5 items for vegetarians. Like the falafel even though it was a bit dry. Would like to go there again.

Best vegetarian retreat after a tiring day near Taksim. The wraps can be improved by adding more sauces and salads but rest of the stuff is nice and tasted fresh. We ended up twice at this place and might go again.

Freshly prepared and fried, with humus, salad and little more. With 20 liras you can buy a menu. Few tables outside and inside. A great veggie choice, near Taksim square.

Excellent food, huge servings, very cheap. Simply great. The hummus was divine, the falafels soft and tasty, and the tabouli was the best I have had.

We got basically all the vegetarian options on the menu. The food was good but the service was confusing the point that they lost a star.

This small but very good restaurant is just located in the heart of Taksim hotels zone.With very extensive menu,this eatery is always crowded with its international customers.Quality and quantity of the food served here is very satisfactory.Price level is also very convenient for this kind of quality food in such a populated&famous touristic center.Highly recommended.

The food quality is good but the service is really bad. Especially the morning shift when they serve with no smile, and talk to you like you're going to beg from them. When I complained about them being late with my falafel sandwich, the young man on the counter said: you can take your money and go if you like.... More

This place is on the side street of Taksim. A very small place. But the food served is excellent. A great place for vegetarians as veg falafel is available. The humus n pita was also very good. In our 3 night stay we visited this place twice.
