Review of Falafel King

Falafel King is the OPPOSITE OF PRETENTIOUS. I've been going here for months - Best falafels in the world! Beats Maroush and all those Edgeware Road places! I only wish this place was open until later!!

For five pounds you get a whole wrap and a fresh mint lemon juice. Service is slow but that's because they make everything so fresh! Worth the wait!!

I LOVE THIS PLACE.

Been here a few times
It has very few reviews for a place that has been around so long
Basically the food and drink are OK but TOO EXPENSIVE.
Of course the location may make the owners feel they have to charge what they charge and no doubt they have expensive overheads always the problem. Should we be taking that into consideration? Or do we only judge the food.So that is the problem and may well explain how a place like this and there are many others score either very good or very bad,
It is not logical since friends are not allowed to write reviews. It must be people are either very happy or very unhappy?

Falafel King has a very nice formula. A great falafel recipe and the best streetfood in Portobello Market. It is not really a restaurant but more a small shop with chairs outside. The chairs could be kept a bit better, my grandmother refused to seat on them even if she was very tired as they looked uninviting to a real lady. They make a very nice freshly squeezed orange juice but most people go for the lemonade as it is a better deal.

Ok so if you have read any of my previous reviews you will know I have a source of AMAZING Lebanese food courtesy of mother-in-law so even a fast food place has to have standards for me and this place just wasn’t that good compared to the Falafel you can get down the road, and they are there most of the time. I like the Falafel stand next to Tesco’s but some friends prefer the one near Santander bank further down. Those places are better and I think cheaper, at least the one near Tesco is. It might not be a "restaurant" but it’s better. FYI the father-in-law prefers the Santander one so try both if you can and compare, let’s hope it doesn’t split your family like it has ours, it’s tragic really 
Ok so first of all the falafel sandwich I had at the King was really dry and just didn’t seem fresh like they were defrosted or something. It just wasn’t up to my standards (I have been known to eat 3 day old food in the fridge during my student days) :) Just saying that compared to the market food this place needs to step up! The food didn’t smell off or anything but it didn’t taste that fresh.
