Description: Lunch time offering of middle eastern streetfood based in Bristol st Nicholas market and Broadmead, city centre. Specialising in falafel, cooked fresh right in front of you. You can have them as a salad (In a box with lovely fresh salad,hummus and pickles), as a pitta (everything inside the pitta bread) or on their own (6 or 10 pieces served with hummus). All in all a tasty, healthy lunch that's great value for money at under £5.

“What's not to like?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This is a takeaway (only) working from a glass box outside Boots the Chemist in Broadmead. There is really only one item on the menu - felafel, which are chick pea rissoles if you don't know. You can have felafel with hummus, felafel in pitta bread with salad, and felafel in a box with salad.

In a box with salad is probably the best option - you get a tupperware-type box full of grated carrot, grated red cabbage, couscous, chopped tomato and cucumber - a squirt of tahini or chilli sauce (or a couple of others I can't recall) - this is studded with five felafels and then they crush the lid down on top (it doesn't hurt).

Very healthy and virtuous with all that salad - and felafel are vegan too. Tasty even. What's not to like?

Let's pick some niits: when it's busy they ask you to queue up and pay, then queue up again and get your food. And it would be nice if they had some tables and chairs, like Subway round the corner. And when they are quiet, they give away free samples, but they are not quiet often enough for me to get away without paying!

“Simply the best street food in broadmead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Excellent value for money, delicious fresh salad every day, appetisingly stacked in large piles in the window. The falafel is the best I've ever tasted - crispy, rich and fresh. Everything is vegetarian friendly and the portions are huge. You can get ten falafels for £2.50 with hummous or a pita with salad and falafel for £4.50. So generous that I share it with my wife! I would highly recommend it over the other options (it makes subway look stingy, expensive and stale).

“Fantastic fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Grabbed some lunch and had a box jammed full of falafel, fresh salads, humous and my choice of dressing. All reasonably priced and delicious- will definitely visit again!

“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

I have been here quite a few times overs the years and it's just wonderful! The portions are huge, normally more than I can eat! Everything tastes very fresh and is well flavoured. A great stop if you are in St. Nicks Market.

“Excellent client lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

I have eaten from Eat a pitta on a number of occasions and I always enjoy the falafel.

This week I bought 40 falafel for a client meeting and it was a real hit! I wanted something different for my clients to snack on and they throughly enjoyed the falafel, homous, fresh salad and sauce!

It won't be the last time I buy lunch for clients from Eat-a-pitta. Great experience as always!
