The place to be

Review done before they changed to non veg

I ordered the zatar wrap (vegan) and my partner ordered the vegan wrap. It was quite busy on a Friday night but we sat inside. The wrap was large and tasty. I liked the texture and flavour of the felafel and it was reasonably priced and filling. My partner enjoyed the wrap.

It’s ok

I ordered a falafel wrap ($10) and it was fine. Although it had a nice taste, the wrap is too thin.

Best falafel in Melbourne

I just love this place and I’ve been coming here all the time for well over a year. Along with your delicious falafels and hummus, fresh salads, generous servings and reasonable prices you also get super friendly service. I always order the falafel mixed plate - three falafel, hummus and a pile of mixed salads - with my favourite garlic tahini sauce, and it’s tasty, filling and cheap at $15 for a meal that some would need to share.

Pros: Delicious falafel and hummus , Generous servings, Friendly staff

Delicious, good value and healthy food

Falafel Place is great. I usually go there at least once a week. Although their menu is simple, I never get tired of the falafel pita wrap with all the sauces - ya gotta have all the sauces! It is a taste sensation.

The staff are friendly, and the prices are great.

I love it.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good value, Vegan options

Excellent value

Very enjoyable falafel wrap for $12.

The falafel mix plate is very large and great value at $13 (all choices for the plate are vegan). Three nicely cooked falafels are surrounded by an assortment of salads and veggies with a generous dollop of hummus. Too much food for me, this could easily be shared by two making it even better value. Will happily return!

Overpriced Underfilled 'Falafel Pita'

If you don't mind paying $8.50 for falafel wrapped in plain white pita bread with no salad or tabouli, then this place might be for you. Personally I expect a little more than a single piece of lettuce and tomato in a falafel wrap for this price. Apparently you can get tabouli added if you pay $10 (how much, a teaspoon?) but I'll be taking my chances at Subway next time I feel like falafel. For $7.50 half or $10.50 full, at least they actually include salad in their fillings.

Pros: Vegetarian, Relatively tasty

Cons: Terrible bang for your buck

good, but some hiccups in their business model

Well situated cosy restaurant. Food was yummy! Apart from bread, all items gluten free (including tabbouleh: quinoa instead of bulgur) which I was very impressed by 😁
Weirdly, they don't sell drinks, but you can get tap water.
Young lad behind the counter was a bit out of it: he couldn't spell my common boy's name, gave me takeaway container without asking if I wanted to eat in (which I did), and I overheard him stuff up several other customers' orders while I ate. 😅 Lady behind counter was lovely though; she gave me a free falafel to try a particular sauce and explained what it was.
Despite the service hiccups I would still recommend to friends and will return!

Pros: tasty food gluten free available nice location,

Cons: need to work on their service , buy a fridge to sell drinks!
