“The best falafels.. maybe in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is such a find!!! The only thing that beats the falafel's (hand made in front of you to order!!) are the lovely ladies behind the counter who cannot do enough for you and are so excited to share their delicious falafels with you!!

Portions are generous and super delicious - you can also add all the condiments your heart desires - they have bowls full of fresh cabbage, pickled jalapeños, pico de gallo, salsa verde, etc.

Definitely a must if you're in the mood for something cheap, fresh and tasty while you're in playa!

“Falafels in Playa!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Didn't anticipate finding Falafels in Playa del Carmen. Found Falafel Nessya and the food was the best! Everything is made from scratch. Best ever. Talked with Nessya and she is wonderful, too.
