Nice and cheap falafel

The staff was nice and there are almost just stuff like hummus and so on but also falafel “to go”, it was a bit dry but nice ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Great meal!

Very large portions at affordable prices.
Nicely seasoned falafel and very creamy hummus.
Minimalistic (and a bit cheap) setting, but with hospitable staff.

I had the falafel plate menu that comes with 9 falafel, two pitas, a portion of hummus and a mixed salad. Had to take a break after 7 falafel, and I'm a bigger fella! The menu was 1400 HUF (~4.5€)

Pros: Large portions, affordable prices

Ugly but delicious

Although the place itself is not very appealing, they really do have some good falafels there!

Pros: Above average taste

You get what you pay for

The hummus was good, however the interior and light made this place feel really worn and boring. Pricing was oddly inconsistent; one combo plate with 9 falafels cost the same as another plate with 3 falafels but with everything else the same.

Pros: Cheap, you get what you pay for

Cons: Feels cheap

Location: cold and uncomfortable.

Staff: The staff is friendly and helpful.

very good falafel

I really liked the falafel and the hummus and would recommend getting a falafel menu. It's very cheap! They don't offer a lot of different dishes, but if you like falafel it's a great choice. friendly english speaking stuff. Some places to sit down.

Pros: all vegan , cheap, toilettes

Cons: tables and toilettes could be cleaner

Highly recommended

The falafel is smooth as the wrap itself.
Im not really into the falafels but this is the best what i tried. Soft and light, with an uncommon shape.

The whole restaurant basicly vegan.
They dont use wheat in their pita.
Friendly owner(speak hungarian) and staff(speak english)

So i highly recommend. Good price good stuff.

Pros: Friendly price, Delicious food, Autentic, vegan, wheat free

Cons: Simple but good menu choices

Best falafel in town!

I have fallen in love with Falafel Sziget since the first time I have eaten here and never have leaved with an empty stomach since. The owner is very nice and makes sure that the food is prepared with care. My personal favorite is the menu with the foul- hummus mix but everything tastes really good. Plus point that now they have delivery.

Pros: excellent food, great value, friendly staff

Cons: more veggies would be nice on the side

very good hummus and falafel

After six weeks in Europe I started missing good hummus and falafel (I'm from Israel). I found this place through happy cow and I'm so happy I did! Very high level, in any standard.

Great hummus and falafel

The Falafel sziget is a bistro hidden in the 'dirty' back street. The bistro is modestly equipped and simple, but the food is great. I really enjoyed it. I had the falafel in pita and hummus.

Pros: Great flavor

Cons: Location

decent dinner

Quiet hidden in the back street, serves tasty home made hummus and falafel for affordable prices. Clean environment, yet the area feels little abandoned.

Pros: tasty homemade meals

Cons: hidden in the back street

Quality Hummus and Falafel

It is located in the center of Budapest quite close to Blaha Lujza square. Small place with a few tables, not much to enjoy from an ambient point of view, however one of the best falafel & hummus places in the city. There is an English menu, let the pictures talk for themselves as food is served as it looks like on the photos. The meals are prepared with love and care. The owner is a very polite and respectful person - not sure if he talks English, but he is definitely not Hungarian -. Very reasonable prices from a Hungarian perspective as well, for Western Europeans it is damn cheap. Since I am interested in the food at the first place, therefore I am giving this place a 4.

Pros: Quality food, Good Location

Cons: Poor decoration, Small place
