All that you can expect from a Maoz Falafel

4 Posted on 09 / 10 / 2014

Vegetarian/Vegan place, I find the concept cool but really unhygienic, everybody putting their hands into the salad bowl, well..
If you are on a budget and in a rush, go there, you won't be disappointed!

Pros: quick, cheap, good, fresh
Cons: unhygienic , careful. not everything is vegan

Great, quick, easy option in heart of Amsterdam

5 Posted on 06 / 26 / 2014

Went to Maoz a couple of times during my trip to Amsterdam last year, both the one on Damrak and Leidsestraat. Fantastic falafel, unlimited, and tasty, salad top ups - which goes great with the eggplant and feta options provided. Both times I went it was quite busy and there's a reason why; delicious, huge portions, quick and cheap!

Pros: Quick, Unlimited veg top up, Good falafel; good location
Cons: Sometimes a little busy

A veggie heaven to take away

4 Posted on 06 / 24 / 2014

With three Maoz Vegetarian restaurants ideally located, Amsterdam can make veggie people really happy! This Maoz is located in a pedestrian part of the city centre. You can easily take away your sandwich to eat it along one of the canal. I really liked the food, which is quite the same from a Maoz location to another. I systematically took the eggplant and hummus supplement in my sandwich, and that was great! The veggie topping were varied and good. Even though the staff is not particulary friendly, it is relatively efficient if the restaurant is crowded.

Pros: vegan options, great fries and falafels, well located
Cons: sometimes crowded

In Maoz we Trust

You simply can't go wrong with this tried and tested falafel gold plated chain. Always great value and tasty falafel is guaranteed. Fast food at its best and the fries are fabulous. Great location just of Leidseplein and Prinsengracht. Maoz has always been firm on my veggie agenda whenever in Amsterdam ever since my first visit in 2002. Function, not romance.

Pros: food, location

Falafel feast!

4 Posted on 06 / 05 / 2013

We visited Amsterdam for three days and ate at Maoz for every meal except for one... As a serious falafel fan I loved this place as a vegan food option, and we were both full of salad thanks to the unlimited salad top ups! The staff were really friendly and happy to answer questions about the various salads and sauces. A great chain for affordable, tasty and healthy food. Though the cafe is small we always found a place to sit as people tend to move along fairly swiftly, so don't be put off by the size.

Pros: Extensive salad bar, Friendly staff, Affordable food

Great fast-food chain

4 Posted on 04 / 06 / 2013

I really like Maoz shops in Amsterdam. They enable vegetarian or other falafel-lovers to enjoy a healthy fastfood lunch. You can eat a white or brown pita with falafel and humus. You add your own salad to the pita. Watch out for the olive pits!

Pros: Central location, Fresh and good quality, Inexpensive
Cons: Often you have to wait in line, Not much room to sit and eat

Excellent, like all Maoz

Great nearly-all-vegan unlimited salad bar to go with freshly made falafel - the only thing that could make this place better is more seats please!

Maoz - Leidsestraat

4 Posted on 10 / 02 / 2010

I love this place! Ate at my first Maoz in Paris and was very happy to find more in the Netherlands. A ~10 minute walk from the museums.

Cheap, greasy, fried veggie fast food

3 Posted on 01 / 02 / 2010

I was searching for the Montplein location and stumbled on this one. Certainly not healthy fare, but if you are hungry and want fast, cheap and hot this one will do. The falafel and fries are cooked in front of you in a deep frier and the patrons stand around and eat while double dipping the fillings out of a salad bar setup. At least it is posted as a vegetarian place on the Maoz sign. No meat on menu but I saw feta cheese coming out of a can. On the 1 and 2 tram line to Central Station and close to the famous Bulldog cafe and the Leidseplein. Bohemian area.

Pros: cheap, hot, fast
Cons: greasy fried food, double dippers salad bar, no bathroom

unsanitary

2 Posted on 07 / 17 / 2009

Amsterdam Maoz are on the fail list. I'm so surprised no one has gotten herpes eating at these Maoz? First off the guy behind the counter handles your cash, the spoons that everyone touches, the door knobs, etc and your pita bread... secondly everyone eats their pita and mid way fills it back up, touching spoon to their mouth juices and vice versa. A place like this would be closed down in any sane part of the world. They need to do them like the Maoz in Madrid.


Cons: unsanitary

Best fast food

4 Posted on 05 / 10 / 2009

I usually eat here before I go to a concert in a venue around the corner (been there dozens of times over the last decade). Last time (March 4th) food was again great. Great falafel, selection of pita bread (whole wheat, plain or small), selection of sauce and unlimited salad bar! Since some years they have added fries to the menu, but refilling your pita over and over agian with salad is way better.

Pros: good value, Friendly staff, fast service
Cons: sometimes dry falafel, small no. of seats

Vegan fast food

4 Posted on 12 / 01 / 2008

Great fast food outlets (there are about 5 in Amsterdam and pretty much in most main European cities) that allows you to choose your bread, filling (falafels, homous etc) and then add your salad at the end. Very useful and easy to get a vegan snack when you're out and about. Food is cooked fresh, bread toasted etc for you while you wait. Recommended.

Pros: Fresh, Clean, key locations

Can't go wrong here

4 Posted on 08 / 11 / 2008

Nice little place to get an affordable delicious meal in Amsterdam. The falafel is first rate and the salad topping bar alone is worth the trip. Small little place without much room to sit down (only a counter), but lovely canal right nearby if you want to take your food and sit out on a sunny day. I would avoid the fries myself. They were not fresh cut (frozen) and there are better to be found in Amsterdam

Pros: good value, excellent falafel, good staff
