I had better falafel before. It was too salty but satisfactory anyways. If I go to that neighborhood again, I will try another restaurant.

“Crowded but Worth the Visit”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

In the Jewish Quarter, great Pita sandwiches and falafel. Always a line- which moves quickly, and packed on the inside. Great Lunch. There are other Fallalel restaurants on the street- even across the street which may off the same, but try from the original.

“You'll wait, but what a treat when you finally get it.”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Arguably "the best falafel in Paris", but is it because it's the most popular, or is the falafal reaaaaaally that good? Perhaps it's a bit of both: those delicious two-handed pita pouches stuffed with scrumptious veggie goodness are justthething after wearing out your walking shoes around Paris, but there are few drawbacks that you should be prepared to endure to get to that yumminess. Around lunchtime and early-evening, forget about getting a table inside, and the wait on line for takeout can be a while, but thankfully you get THE handsomest Israeli men in Paris whisking you through the menu. You'll also find NO place to sit outside near L'As, so be prepared to take your falafel in hand and walk the 10 minutes either down to the Seine or over to the Place des Vosges to plunk yourself down and eat...but who am I kidding? You'll never be able to wait 10 minutes while a beautiful falafel is bearing down on you to take. a. bite. right. now.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This stop is most certainly a must for anyone visiting the Marais area of Paris on a trip there. I would go for a light lunch with a kebab and get it takeaway and eat in the street.
