Lovely place - Edit

Downstairs is a middle eastern style seating area which, if it isn't booked for events, is a lovely setting to enjoy your meal.

Even if this is busy, the upstairs seating is very friendly and take-away is easy. The falafel is renowned Bristol-wide which is saying something! The falafel portion sizes are huge and a struggle to finish, really good value.

The only downside is the salad choices are limited but this is more than made up for by the venue, staff and falafel quality! The falafel is easily made vegan by not adding tzatziki. There are lots of other middle eastern menu options - entirely vegetarian with some vegan.

The business owners and staff are just really nice people - always so friendly, sourcing everything locally and making sure all ingredients taste really fresh. I've been coming here for 3 years and I still love it. Definitely one for the Bristol eatery bucket list.

Oh and rice stuffed vine leaves are only 25p and so so good!

Pros: Beautiful seating area, Good atmosphere, Good value

Cons: Not many salad options

Great, inexpensive food to go! - Edit

This is a great little van near the theatre and river in Bristol. They serve tasty falafels stuffed in a pitta bread with salad and sauce. It's really inexpensive. Ideal for students. It's been my teenage son's favourite stop off in Bristol for ages. Well worth it if you like a falafel lunch without spending too much money. They are happy to let you know what is vegan.

Pros: Inexpensive, Excellent value, Great vegan options

Great snack-stop - Edit

The £4.50 falafel in laffa was actually far more substantial than a snack. There were at least 10 pieces of fresh falafel in a large flat bread, delicious houmous, salad and tahini. The lady was really friendly in explaining that all barr the garlic mayo was dairy free (there's also an aubergine dish with boiled egg but there'd be no issue in foregoing the egg). This would fulfil even any meat-eaters kebab craving.

Pros: Good value, Very simple menu

Cons: A little tricky to eat "on the go"!

Best falafel in the world - Edit

As a vegan student in Bristol, I don't know what I would eat if Falafel King did not exist. Delicious food, friendly staff and affordable prices, I could not recommend this cafe more. Great for lunch and dinner. Just started live music performances as well. Get the tahini sauce!

Pros: Yummy vegan food, Great staff, Affordable
