Bish bash bosh

Does what it says on the tin. A falafel pita for €8 or half for €4.50, which tastes, in my opinion, better than the other falafel kiosk around the corner. I asked for spicy and it wasn't that spicy for me. The bread is just right. Just be aware that it sits on the side of the road with the bridge, regardless of what the map says.

Excellent Falafel

I really love falafel, so on my recent trip to Amsterdam I decided to try out Dr Falafel as it had many great reviews on various other foodie sites. The cook basically prepares your falafel pita, adds all the veggies, sauces and toppings to you pita.

The falafel pita was I ate there was a feast of flavours, all of the individual constituents seemed freshly made (not store bought) and it seemed to me that the cook made the dish with an actual passion, pride and respect for the middle eastern ways of preparing it, i could certainly taste this in the final dish. Nowadays this is a quite rare phenomenon, certainly in Amsterdam, especially in places where you can get a bite to eat sub 10 euro's.

I'll definitely pop around the next time I'm in Amsterdam.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff

My nr. 1 Falafel in my home town Amsterdam

I simply love Dr. Falafel. I live in Amsterdam for more than 20 years now and dr. Falafel is my favorite place to get a pita. The every pita is made with falafel balls, that come straight out of the fryer. The taste is somehow just a bit more smooth than most falafel. The tahin and the spicy is perfect. This food makes me happy.

Nothing special

The falafel are decent but not outstanding, the price is okay. There's better and cheaper falafel to be had in Amsterdam

Delicious, cheap lunch

Great falafel, and it's only 6 euro for a whole or 3 euro for a half. We eat here a few times a month. Spice level is customizable, and the spicy is *actually* spicy, unlike a lot of places in AMS. It's a great meal to grab on the go if you're walking in Oud West.

Pros: Cheap, Tasty , Friendly
