“Good vegetarian food”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

I wont take away the fact that the food is good. If you are a meat exclusive lover, go away. I tried the cheese potato chickpea, chickpea soup, wraps and vegetable soup. All were good. What irks me is that they advertise themselves on trip advisor in the shop giving off a 'trying too hard' vibe. If you are dependant on number of reviews to rate a restaurant then be aware of this.

“Excellent falafel”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Simply the best falafel I ever had. Only one complaint, we went at 8pm and they had already run out of food! Anyway, the food is really good.

“Best place in korea for falafel”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Really great cafe run by lovely couple. I always get the falafel wrap. Everything is home made here down to the wrap bread. Made in front of you. Tastes delious everytime. Also a great place to stockpile up on chic peas.

“A great vegetarian place”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

As an Israeli and a vegetarian I found Seoul quite challenging. When I found this cool spot I was really happy to finally eat something not fermented.
The falafel itself is really good, the wrap and sauce are not what I'm used to, but taste really good.
The atmosphere is cool and quiet and the owner was really nice and asked if I'm vegan, for they have different sauces.
Definitely worth trying.
