Love falafel. Eat it all the time in Fairbanks. This guy does it differently (the falafel is a lot harder) but it is still great! Sauce and spices are amazing, damn falafel! Why you so good?

Falafel King is completely AMAZING!!! I LOVE it!!! The pita bread is unbelievable: soft, warm, and super tasty. I'm pretty sure I would go there just to eat pita bread, but everything else is great, too!

We walked to the Falafel King from the Sheraton in Anchorage. The owner is a very pleasant Israeli woman that makes you feel at home. Our food was fresh and cooked to order. Large portions with homemade pita that's made fresh daily. One of the best meals we had during our entire trip.

Hard to believe such quality falfalels in the frozen north. The ingredients are fresh and authenic. The owner is friendly and pleasant, even with limited English. Well worth a visit if you have a car.

I stopped in the place for lunch after reading stellar reviews on tripadvisor. I had the falafel pita and for $8 I thought it was a bit pricy. However, when it arrived it was in a large fresh puffy pita and stuffed to the max and an extra serving of humus on the side for dipping. The owner took my... More

I actually get cravings for these falafel. Not much room to sit and eat, best to get takeout and enjoy at home with a bottle of wine.

I don't know much about middle eastern food, but the Falafel and Schwarma tasted very good to us. The portions were very generous and lady preparing the food was very friendly.

I told this to the owner and he told me I was wrong. He said that he'd been back to Israel recently and was convinced that Felafel King in Anchorage was better. I don't know. Maybe it's the Alaskan water, but this was up there among the best I've had anywhere. Our felafel was made to order, so you can't... More

The food is great. Very fresh made when you order. Falafel are a bit cruchy for My taste but the schnitzel and schwarma are better than any I have had in the middle eastern countries.. Wish they had more room for seating. There is a small deck but it is often chilly even on sunny days in Alaska.
