"Everything is vegan in here" - Edit

"Everything is vegan in here" said the helpful man who served me. And indeed it is. You get a good sized portion, lots of choice as to how you want your falafel /salad bowl made up, and at a reasonable price too.
Recommended for a quick, easy meal on the go.

Pros: All vegan, reasonably priced

Cons: None

Tasty fast food - Edit

The staff were very helpful, the servings good value, the food tasty. If it had been an eat-in cafe with proper cutlery I'd have given it 5*. I knocked one off because it comes in throwaway packaging, and there was nowhere nearby to recycle the plastic parts. The falafel wraps were best, because they are just in paper (smoothies and salads had more plastic). Excellent in every other respect, and I would go again for another falafel wrap.

Pros: Tasty food, Good value, Friendly staff

Cons: Takeaway packaging

Go Go Go Falafel! - Edit

I’ve been wanting to visit Go Falafel for ages, unfortunately there’s not much call for me to be in the city, but I jumped at the opportunity to go when I could.
As well as being really excited to visit, it was also international falafel day when we popped by (bless), which meant the falafel wraps were on offer, bonus!

The staff were very happy and friendly, and the falafel were made fresh for us. Sometimes I find falafel can be a bit heavy and greasy, these were light, fluffy and crispy. Perfection! The selection of salad that accompanied the falafel and houmous were crisp and fresh, and the bread was perfect for the job. This has to have been the single best takeaway sandwich-like meal I’ve ever had. It sounds daft to get so pumped up over this meal but even now I’m craving another.

I have to find another excuse to visit Manchester just to go back to Go Falafel, I should be ashamed to say that but their falafel is something to be proud of enjoying, please open up even more chains!

Pros: The best falafel in the area, Friendly and happy staff, Several stores around the city for more!

Cons: Nothing!

Quick and tasty - Edit

A handy place to go for quick and tasty vegan food. I had the salad bowl with about 5 different things, plus falafel and hummus, which was pretty filling! The wraps with tofu looked good too. Good value.

Draw back of take-away place is use of plastic - would be great if this could be replaced with compostable ones. But at least the city has some bins for recycling the plastic.

Pros: Tasty, Good value

Cons: Plastic containers

I Love Falafel Wraps - Edit

It's a basic, fast-food type of a place. It's all vegan, tasty and reasonably priced. The staff are helpful and friendly and the falafel wrap I had was packed full of veggies. Definitely a good lunch option for this very central Manchester location.

Pros: Tasty falafel wrap, Central location

Confusing meal sizes - Edit

I couldn't make sense of your portion sizes. You have a medium and a large, but no small. Surely you can't have a medium without a small? I was hungry but a medium felt too big. And what's a large anyway, one and a half mediums or three smalls? Also there was no meat on the menu.

Pros: Good counter, Nice posters , Great location

Cons: Unpleasant waitress , Man behind counter wasn't wearing shoes, There was no smalls

PatrickCook 03 Mar 2017 - I'm not certain. But I'm pretty sure he wasn't wearing shoes. Thought it was a northern thing. He was smoking a ciggy as well

Awesome vegan falafel & the best mango smoothy ever - Edit

This was the 1st vegan place we visited in Manchester with my sister. It is pretty close to the train station, right next to Piccadilly Gardens. Their mango smoothy is to die for! The falafel was simply awesome, what we could personalize with many fresh toppings.

Pros: Freshly made food , Great location

Cons: Really small place, can be jammed

Absolutely Delicious, quick service, 100% vegan - Edit

Great location just off of Piccadilly Gardens, immediate service from a deli counter type style vendor. The food is amazing! I have had the falafel wrap loads of times and also tried the salad. You can select as few or as many of the different toppings, I have everything as it's all so good. YUM!

Pros: Quick and friendly service, Fresh, delicious food, Range of fresh fruit smoothies

Cons: No seating, if that's important to you

Fast and filling - Edit

This was great value for money. I ordered a falafel wrap and a green smoothie. Very filling and tasted great.

The server wasn't terribly chatty was was pleasant enough.

I ate in nearby park but would have welcomed the option to eat at a counter.

Fresh, tasty, vegan - Edit

Really enjoyed my falafel from here. It was large, very filling and delicious!

I especially love that the whole place is vegan, so you don't need to worry about what you can and cannot order.

I would definitely recommend Go Falafel!

Pros: All vegan menu, Vegan fast food

Hmmm - Edit

After reading reviews and hype i found it a little disappointing. The whole places just seems to clinical and no real vibe about the place. When we arrived the line was out the door which got our hopes up but as nearing the counter and reading the options and trying to feel the buzz i got disappointed.
They have no green juice at all on their menu even tho the place is filled with veg. When asked if they could make me a green juice they said its just whats on the menu. They did not seem like they wanted to help with my questions and where just rushing to get me in and get me out. I even asked if they know where i could go and get a green juice since i don't know the city and all i got was "no". I got 1 smoothie and 1 juice anyway which where nice but it would have been nicer if it was served with a smile.

Go to Go Falafel! - Edit

Go Falafel serves the best falafel in Manchester and everything is vegan. The falafel wraps include roast potato with the salad, and it is the best thing ever. Service is usually fast, and occasionally if you're waiting for a new batch to be fried they will offer you a bit of falafel while you wait. There's no seating.

Excellent Falafel - Edit

Some of the best falafel I've ever had, and I've had a lot. It's nothing original but it does the basics well and since it's really cheap for the portion size you get I think that's excellent value.

If I were to criticise anything it'd be that they could stick a little bar table and stools in the corner so you can have the option of sitting there to eat.

Decent Falafel - Edit

This place serves traditional fresh falafel, salads, juices & wraps.

The falafel is perfect. The price is cheap and the staff are always very friendly!

My only complaint would be that they are a bit stingey with the houmous...

Decent Falafel - Edit

Go Falafel serves the kind of falafel you expect to get, it isn't anything too special but there are a couple of different salad and sauce options and it's reasonably priced. The juices are delicious by the way.

Pros: 100% Vegan, Fresh juices

Cons: No indoor seating, Falafel quite greasy

Ok - Edit

This small eatery is very ok of you are on a rush and you just need something vegan to eat. Don't expect a outstanding yummy meal. It is ok but nothing special. The juices taste very good! Unfortunately they do not have a possibility to eat directly inside the shop.

Not bad - Edit

The falafel wrap wasn't anything super amazing but it was tasty enough. Good for a quick bite. The separation of the salad selections is a little odd though.

Not so go.More Slow Falafel overpriced and bland.. - Edit

Wish I could give 1 cow!
Took over ten minutes for my food and paid £4.50 for a disappointing tasting falafel wrap. Their chilli sauce is pathetic.
Go to Safad's round the corner.
Best Falafel in the world.
£3 and you get more besting tasting falafel.
Better selection of toppings also.
And OLIVES!
