Even in the early 80s, my Dad took me to this place on a weekly basis. I have been a huge fan ever since. Great food, fantastic service, friendly staff, authentic location. Beni is the best falafel in Antwerp!!

Staying at the Plaza Hotel nearby and didn’t have enough in the legs after a long day ended up at this little place which is next door based on the weight of other reviews - didn’t disappoint at all. A filling but not heavy portion...of falafels on a bed of salad and rich hummus was brilliant. The condiments that they have alongside enhanced the flavours as well. The falafels themselves are very nice - just crunchy enough without being hard and really tasty! Will surely return...More

There are lots of excellent reviews for this place including some way over the top: 'best vegetarian in Belgium'. We had an acceptable lunch but it was not as good as expected. The homus was, to our taste, somewhat bland and the falafel overcooked and...also bland. Service was fine and the location on a busy street with people and trams passing by was 'authentic'. It is certainly a good location for seeing a different kind of Antwerp from the tourist and shopping scene. So, recommendable with reservations.More

This place was a part of a private guided walk around the Jewish quarters of Antwerp. The meal was not part of the walk, but since it was almost dinner time we decided it was worth a try. Apparently, it was voted one of the...best vegetarian restaurants in the world. You need to make an effort to find it since it is a bit outside the main tourist routes. The food was simple and excellent and the service prompt. Highly enjoyable!More

Its a basic and not fancy place with decent food from Israel. The menu is small and the prices are cheap. It can get very crowded and noisy and chaotic but the food is yummy.

This is one of the hidden gems of Antwerp, located in the middle of the Jewish neighborhood. The food is really amazing. It is not only the falafel, but also the sauces. The place hasn’t changed for ages, although Beni is not there anymore. The...lady now in charge hasn’t changed anything and will receive you with great friendliness.More

I know Beni Falafel for many years. When it was real falafel. Beni used clean oil and the falafel-balls were never burnt. The portions were generous. Today it is probably more interesting ...for the owners but for the consumer it is downdraded. Maybe the clients...cannot compare or judge, but it does not change the reality. Many old customers realize it.More
