Cheap and yummy falafel

A really good place for lunch with very cheap meals (15-20 soles). The homemade falafel which is the star of every dish is some of the best I’ve had. The vegan mixed grill was superb! Also could not report child labour, but the service was indeed a bit weird.

Uncomfortable service - child labour?

This for me was a uncomfortable experience.

A young boy was the waiter for the entire evening and even made other customers feel a bit awkward.
He’s just way to young for doing this job and he was clearly tired.

Menu has both vegan and vegetarian options and is in both English and Spanish.
Food was tasty though but service is a bit slow because everything is freshly made.

Price was very cheap and portions are generous.
I just don’t know how I feel about the child labour.

Tasty food but strange vibes

We came there for dinner and when we arrived the restaurant was empty and a kid ran down the stairs to serve us. He was our waiter for the whole evening and it was really strange cause he was super young and not really getting what we were ordering. Food was delicious though but the vibe was not so comfy.

Pros: Tasty food , A lot of vegan options

Cons: Kid being our waiter, A lot of dishes were not available

Delicious and cheap

Not too expensive and they had plenty of vegan options. Service was slightly slow but is was very busy when we were there. No rush so we didn’t mind waiting. Options were very delicious and flavourful

Súper sabroso

Nice restaurant with a bunch of vegan and veggie options. Their vegan green grill bowl is delish and so are their Durums. Really recommend trying their kombuchas too (maracuyá is 👌)
Only thing is the service was a little slow, and on the first visit they completely forgot about the pizza we ordered lol 🥲

Great taste, slow service

I came here several times, while the young boy was helping to serve, there were two older family members who did most of it. Didn't feel uncomfortable, but was there earlier during the day.
The Durum Mega Vegano is good, but the Pita Mega Vegano is amazing, so good Pita!

The service is pretty slow and they only come by once to bring the order. The kitchen is upstairs so it is kind of hard to call them

Great food. Poor service

For me this was an absolute uncomfortable experience. We came in and there was no one to greet us except a 9 year old. He brought us the menus, took our order, cleaned the tables, took the money... Having to take initiative to ask a kid to take your order is a very uncomfortable situation. I do not understand how other people coming here take this so lightly?! It was 9pm by the time we'd left and he was clearly tired! He also seemed uncomfortable the whole time... which is normal! No business for a kid to be doing this kind of job.

The food was really tasty nonetheless but I quickly lost my appetite...

Honestly this place has great potential but some changes need to be made.

Il nostro posto preferito a Cusco

Chiunque dovrebbe venire al mercato San Blas, piccolo e accogliente, per nulla caotico. Green Falafel è uno dei nostri posti preferiti, piatti da 12 a 15 sol, menù con patate fritte e drink a 20😄

Pros: Molte opzioni vegane , Ha anche un ristorante dislocato nella città , Economico

Cons: Forse le opzioni sono un pelo ripetitive

Cheap excellent food

The vegan wrap is huge and only costs 15 soles at the time of writing. The food tastes excellent. All the other prices are more than fair. Family place, the kids help out. Definitely recommend.

Excellent vegan wraps, good range of drinks too. Cosy setting too.

A nice spot for a wrap style bite with a good range of drinks and desserts too.

Pros: Good menu, Cosy setting , Wifi!

Cons: High on the hill!

Good food, get rid of child labour

The food was good, but something I cannot agree with is having your child work for you in the restaurant. I understand families here in Peru are not the wealthiest but that should NEVER be a reason for child labour. Besides, it makes your customer service and experience abominable. Restaurant is small enough to run with just the adults while the children go and do what they do best: play and have a good time.

Pros: Food is good, Cheap

Cons: Child labour

Food just ok, service is not good

All the staff are in the kitchen area upstairs and they do not come down very often at all. I waited a long time to give my order, and no one ever came to give me my bill so I just left cash on the table and left. Other patrons in the restaurant were also visibly frustrated at the slow service. I also didn’t get what I was expecting but I politely ate it anyway. The staff in general just seemed annoyed to have business in general, and the food was just okay. I wanted to like this place but sadly I can’t recommend it.

Amazing food but super slow service

Our food was amazing, they also serve diff soups if you just arrived in Cusco and need to adapt to the altitude. Foodwise would definitely recommend, however, the service was super slow - took them more than 5min to even arrive/say hello even though the restaurant was empty. To pay we waited another 15min until anyone felt like coming.

Fat falafel !

Both ordered the Durum Mega Vegano. It was very large and packed with veg! Served with hummus and an amazing fresh tomato sauce on the side. I was sad it ended but I don’t think I could have eaten anymore. Would love to come back to try their pizza

Pros: Everything is vegan/veggie, Very big portions, Cheap!

Cons: Only 3 tables, but you can share! , Don't have everything, so inquire beforehand

Loved it

Many vegan options. I had the lentil soup, hummus, and a mango juice. The soup was full of vegetables and flavor and was a generous size for the price. And the juice seemed freshly prepared. Will def be going back.

Big portions of fresh food.

This is the restaurant I visit most often. Really good, fresh food arrives in large portions: soup, main and drink (kombucha). So cheap: S/10 in total. Everything is home-made. Sometimes chocolate cakes are available. Eggs and cheese in some dishes. Friendly staff. It's fun to sit and watch life going on in the middle of the market.
You can order food to take away - meals or even just humus or salsa (take your own containers if you can).
At the moment, their attention to COV19 Health and Safety is notable.
