Awesome Vegan Falafels - Edit

FilFil is a Middle Eastern cafe the inspiration of owner Amal, raised in the Middle East and who wanted to offer traditional falafel, to eat in a lively and sociable environment, or to takeaway. Filfil is a term used as the singular for falafel and means chilli in Arabic and their falafels are freshly made each day.

I chose falafel wrap, chips and a bottle of water, available on a meal deal for the bargain price of £7.25 and even managed to bag a table outside in the sunshine.

This was the best falafel wrap I have eaten, with loads of crunchy salad, houmous, tahini dressing, crisp chips, it was spot on in every respect and made for a perfect lunch, after walking miles in the morning.

I had a brief chat with Amal (no relation to Mrs Clooney she sadly said) and you could tell her enthusiasm and pride for her business and the food they serve. Highly recommended on a visit to Brighton.

Pros: Vegan options, Vegan falafels

AMAZING food for a really good price! - Edit

We had avocado and falafels in pita, it was huge, lots of ingredients and super delicious! I just didn't understand why they didn't warm it for a longer time, as it was cold and still very tasty. We will definitely come back!

Also the staff was very friendly and helpful!

Pros: Big portions, Great prices, Friendly staff

Excellent falafel - Edit

Really friendly staff, great falafel, and lovely fluffy pitta. Certainly the best falafel I've had in a while. The wrap or pitta is pretty stuffed and will fill you up. Always really clean and fresh and made to order. The meze plates are huge and have a great range too.

Pros: Excellent falafel, Friendly staff , Big portions

Good value for a generous, tasty falafel wrap. Friendly staff, who were happy to bring my dog, Shelly, into the restaurant with me. Toilets were clean, too. £10.80 for two falafel wraps and two soft drinks.

Fabulous place - Edit

Visited with my 11 yr old today, and we were both very impressed. Lovely greeting as we arrived, we asked what certain dishes were and were given tasters. Ordered the delicious pitta falafel stuffed full if crunchy veg, homemade lemonade was delicious too. Saw the huge platters being made up and they looked incredible, wish we were in the area for longer as would love to go back. We took away some of their baklava and Lebanese sweets and they were scrummy.

Huge Falafel Wraps - Edit

Generous falafel wraps with tons of salads and dressings. Falafel are moist inside and crunchy outside. Staff said everything vegan apart ftom 2 dishes with halloumi / feta so non-vegan food is obvious. Platters and mezze available too. Also had tasty homemade lemonade and chunky chips.

Pros: Mostly Vegan, Good Falafels, Lemonade

Cons: Tahini Sauce Runs EVERYWHERE!
