Awesome! - Edit

Small falafel joint with great vegan toppings - tahini, hummus, cabbage, tabouleh. Picnic tables out back to eat outside.

Nice vegan fast food. - Edit

This is part of a chain of fast food vegan, I think, since I had one in Hollywood as well.

A little place with not much indoor eating possibility, now with the California weather nice outside seats.

Friendly and nice staff.

They have different salads, burgers and just a few cookies as desserts.

The dishes are pretty consistent, thus better start slowly and you can always order more if necessary.

Overall good experience.

Pros: Good vegan fast food, Friendly staff

Cons: Limited seats, more take away

okay - Edit

I found out about this place opening from happycow, and stopped in for lunch a handful of times. Here's my Fala Bar Venice review.

This little joint is a good spot to get an inexpensive and flavorful vegan bite while in Venice on trendy and somewhat expensive shopping street Abbot Kinney.

I've tried the pumpkin-falafel pita sandwich and kale burger. The pita sandwich was good, especially with the pumpkin falafel balls which had a sweet taste. The kale burger features a falafel in patty style and was full of flavor though saltier and heavier than I like. Both came in fresh bread which added to overall satisfaction. I recommend the pumpkin falafel.

I've also had the brussel sprouts side dish and another appetizer which was a spicy falafel in dressing (forgot the name).

Suggestion for improvement: it needs to simplify its menu for the cooks to make the food quicker. All 3 times I had to wait a long time for my food.

Pros: simple, cheap

Cons: sometime long wait

So Delicious & Well Priced - Edit

Best, most cost effective meal money can buy especially for LA. The salads are mega and satisfying. The burgs are remarkable. Highly recommended.

Pros: cheap, great hours, SOOOO tasty

Delicious gem - Edit

The food is absolutely delicious!

They have different flavors of falafels, and the sweet potato kind is my favorite, either on the sandwich or the plate.

I'm also a huge fan of the Avocado Burger, it's a sweet potato patty with red lentils, a bit different from the sweet potato falafel--and it comes with an avocado!

If you're not feeling like a sandwich, their Mexican Bowl is delicious, although the taco mix is a bit spicy, so if you're a wuss like me, tread carefully haha.

The prices are very reasonable--$8 for a sandwich--which is unbelievable given that it's located on an overpriced hip shopping street.

Pros: delicious food, great prices, lots of options on the menu

Cons: parking :(, very small space

Sandwiches and Salads - Edit

I was here opening day, and have eaten at the restaurant in the other location. I like their falafel and sandwiches, but I prefer their salads. I ordered the pumpkin falafel and a kale burger this time around. both were tasty, I preferred the pumpkin falafel. It is great to have a an inexpensive restaurant in this trendy area of town.

Pros: inexpensive in a trendy area

falafels and more - Edit

I'm stoked to have this new place in the area. They offer a quick and affordable option to the area which is quickly becoming a veg center of L.A.. I tried the kale burger and also a sweet potato falafel.
