Worth the visit!

Super tasty food in gigantic portions for a low price. Lots of durum's and dishes to choose from. Small placewith a few spots to eat. Owner makes you feel like you're home! If doing takeaway you can walk over to library square or main square (oude markt) and sit down at a cafe to eat with a drink. Indoor and outdoor seating.

Quick bite!

When we read the previous reviews, we had to try it out! We shared a Falafel sandwich, this was very fulfilling and it tasted perfect! The owner also gave us a free falafel to try, very generous!

Pros: Falafel

This place is small and has just a few places to sit down.

The sandwiches are very huge and the sauces (hummus, taking and baba ganoush) are absolutely delicious. But the falafel are just okay. Mine weren't well done but raw on the inside and they are definitely made with flour what isn't typical for good falafel. That's a big con!

The owner is extremely friendly and talkative.

Does not accept credit cards.

Pros: Prices are okay, portions are big

Cons: does not accept credit cards, my falafel were raw on the inside

Best service & falafel 🧆

The man who made the falafel was incredibly nice - he gave us a free falafel ball to try during the waiting time (which was not long at all). Also what I really appreciated is that he told us that two falafel sandwiches plus extra flat bred with hummus is probably too much for two people so we ordered less. Others would have just taken the order and money but he seemed really to care about throwing nothing away 😇 The portions were as promised really big and delicious and we fully enjoyed our stay 😍

Pros: incredible service , big portions, super delicious falafel

Extremely good service!

Small shop. The Aramean owner, who came to Belgium 3 years ago, is super nice and tells passionately about Syria and his life in Belgium. As soon as you walk in, you’ll be offered falafel to taste it. The dishes are very fresh and tasty.

Huge falafel and fresh baklava

Very cheap food and you really get a lot! Use of fresh vegetables is really appreciated. Also fully vegan baklava in different flavours; hard to come by! Very friendly owner, there was a tray of baklava on the counter which you could taste. It is a bit small though, so not a lot of space to sit inside but definitely delicious food.

Pros: Fully vegan, Very cheap - a lot of fresh food for small price, Friendly owner

Cons: Not a lot of space to sit inside

Several options for falafel sandwiches (houmous / baba ganoush / extra vegetables, etc.) The sandwiches cost around 6-7€ and are very generous! I would have had enough with half of my sandwich, but it was really good so I ate it all. Small clean place with fresh salad and freshly baked falafels.

Pros: Large portion, Great taste, Friendly staff

Very ok

Ok, it's just a falafel place but one of the best in the game. Sure, the food is great and fresh but imaging the friendly owner just handing out free (superduperfresh) falafelballs in his shop! Whereafter he starts to make a HUGE falafel wrap thingie for you to enjoy. Tasty very much but remember it's HUGE and therefore a messy eat. But face it... We all need a messy eat every now and then.
Oh and it's dirt cheap also.

Pros: Cheap, fresh and good., Friendly owner
