One of the best falafel I EVER had. Crispy, well seasoned, a little bit spicy and incredibly tasty.

When I was waiting for my falafel sandwich the owner, a very friendly palestinian guy who came to Leuven to cook and sell falafel and other great middle east food to the people, gave me a falafel to try. When I bit into that crispy born ball of happiness I almost felt like I entered falafel heaven.

Unfortunately, this palestine-style falafel comes with different vegetables than syrian or lebanese falafel sandwiches, so no pickled cucumber and no pink reddish, but red cole, tomatoes and green cucumber. But the great hummus tops it all.

I will definitely come back every time I meet Leuven and maybe I will visit the city just to eat those falafel.

Pros: best falafel i ever had , cool and friendly owner, good prices

CATERING ONLY: Fresh tasty food, generous portions

As we knew the owner from his former restaurant across the street (Falafel Top), we were excited to check out his new sit-down restaurant. WOW, it was INCREDIBLE! Freshly made food that tasted so incredible that I nearly cried when I ate the last bite. It is now my new favorite restaurant in town. Service is also tops!

Great falafel and very friendly!

Nice falafels and very friendly service. I even got a minth tea for free, thank you
6 falafels in the falafel dish was too much for me, so a very generous portion! The dish also had hummus, eggplant and fresh vegs. Perhaps add some the sauces - maybe as an option?
I had a relaxed lunch on the outside terrace.

Pros: Cheap, Very friendly

Cons: Not all vegan
