First Review by Stevie

quick veg fast food - Edit

Had nice curry veg soup, humus falafel plate efficient service. Great fresh chutneys on table. Eggless chocolate cake. Not much ambiance but it is fast food type of place that can seat about 30 persons. Family style. Good neighborhood veg eats.

Awesome restaurant! - Edit

I visited it along with some buddy of mine.

We were happy to find a vegetarian restaurant in my area. :)
It is quite modern, comfortable and great for someone who is always afraid of those typical restaurants where they have no idea what a vegetarian/vegan is. That's because they are actually always friendly and never look at you as if you're an alien from outer space when you ask if they put in milk/eggs in the food. :)

The owner (Beni) also came out and talked for a while, which barely any owner of any restaurant ever does, so that was just awesome of him! :)

Don't worry about the 'white' sauce on top of your falafel sandwich! That is actually tahini (sesame seed sauce) that looks a lot like some kind of yoghurt dressing. I am EXTREMELY lactose intolerant and still ate a sandwich with that sauce and had no stomach pain whatsoever, so it's completely dairy-free. :)

Pros: Friendly staff/comfortable feeling, Delicious food, Not expensive

Simple and Tasty - Edit

This is a great place for tasty, affordable vegetarian food. The falafel pitas in particular are a favourite- everything is made fresh to order, and comes with a great selection of spicy sauces. Plenty of vegan options, and the owner is really friendly. Not the place to go for "ambiance" but fantastic for lunch or an early dinner.

Pros: Affordable, Vegan Options

Perfect falafel - Edit

That's just great home made falafel with hummus there!
Friendly staff and quick service.
Couldn't be called cozy or something, but for what it is that's not so important.
They offer four different sauces with their falafels, all really yummy.
Though they have no idea what vegan is, so you have to explain of follow your intuition on it. I believe the sauces are vegan aside from the white garlic one.
The prices are reasonable but considering the quite small portions it could be cheaper. OR bigger portions, that would be even greater.

Pros: great food

Cons: not very clear for vegan

Tasty food - Edit

funny restaurant (mix of cultures), but tasty falafel and hummus. If you are vegan, you have to ask for a vegan pita bread. Don't use the word vegan, they don't know what that means.

Pros: excellent pita, good price, also take away

Cons: small place, No vegan desserts

Great falafel place - Edit

A classic on the Antwerp-scene: at lunch time during the week it can be invaded by school children, in teh evening a mix of Indians, religious Jews and hippies:).
The falafel is excellent, that's what you mainly come here for. They also have things like burekas, but my guess is that eggs used for that would not be cage-free.

Pros: Good falafel

Beni Falafel, Antwerp - Edit

A while since I was in this place in a Jewish quarter (accessible by tram from the city centre) in Antwerp but I remember it well. Staff were helpful in trying to get me something vegan as there isn't the biggest amount of vegan options immediately on the menu. Beni himself is a fun guy. There seemed to be people coming and going all the time, a bit of energy in the place. Huge bowls of soup I seem to remember also.

A good spot.

Pros: Nice food, Good atmosphere
