Perfect after a full day of kayaking!

We came here to get a quick bite after kayaking all day. It really hit the spot. The food was delicious and very well seasoned. I loved the fact that it came with freshly baked wholemeal pitta and that you could help yourself to salad from the salad bar. We originally opted for one item each but then had to get an extra one to share because it was so tasty! I would thoroughly recommend this place to people visiting Ghent.

Pros: Well-priced, Simple but delicious food, Excellent for a quick and filling meal

Cons: Bring your own cutlery as they have single-use, Not 100% vegan

Simple but tasty

We came here for dinner. Most of the options were vegan except one. I really liked that they came with a wholemeal pita. I think that worked nicely with the flavour. You also get a container to use for your salad (which you choose yourself). The felafel itself was tasty. The fillings were nice too. Very cheap, good dinner option.

Sehr leckere Falafel

Bis auf ein Falafel Gericht ist alles bei hashtag falafel vegan. Alle Gerichte kommen mit einem Vollkorn Potabrot. Ich hatte Aswan Falafel mit Salat und Tahnini und einen frischen Minztee. Sehr zu empfehlen!

Pros: Bis auf ein Gericht alles vegan, Schnelle Zubereitung , Nicht teuer

Amazing falafel

Freshly made falafel with freshly made bread. We ate the last falafel on the list and the owner told that it is the least good one. We were suprised because this one was already fantastic for only €5😄

Pros: Price, Friendly owner, Tasty

Lekker vers!

We namen twee verschillende falafelbroodjes, 1 met een slaatje en tahine en 1 met aardappel en tomatensaus. Samen voor €10. De falafel werd vers en snel gemaakt. Het eten was superlekker en we kregen er nog een slaatje bij. Behalve 1 broodje is alles vegan! Hier gaan we nog komen😄

Last affordable vegan place in Ghent!

This place has been my sanctuary for years, because, while Ghent has lots of vegan options, all of them are overpriced/expensive. This place has had stable prices since forever (5 euro for falafel and salad bar!). Also offers other Egyptian inspired (vegan) dishes. Only one option isn’t vegan, all are vegetarian. Friendly service, clean interior.
You can eat there, but also perfect to take away if you don’t wanna cook.

Full of flavour, fresh, very kind

Small & basic but cosy snack bar with top quality falafel, very affordable. Love the wholemeal, homemade bread they use. I’d go for the more culinary versions with garlic sauce or eggplant. Owner is so kind!

Great value but average falafel

This is a fast-food take-away place. When we were there, they seemingly were either almost sold-out or not ready with their preparations - there wasn't much choice for toppings/salad. As others have stated, I also don't like that they put the falafel into the sandwich, but the hummus and other toppings ("salad") comes separately (in plastic bowls, from where you are supposed to put it into your sandwich yourself...). You can taste that they prepare everything themselves, the seasoning is unique and good. But all in all, it was just an average falafel experience. For me it is a place where you can have a quick and cheap meal when you are close by, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

I chose the 'hummus obsession' which was rather dry. The falafel itself was okay. I didn't like the fact that the salad and hummus is served separately in a plastic cup. Also had the fresh mint tea which tasted good but again it's served in a plastic cup even though we ate at the restaurant.

Pros: Aside from the garlic sauce everything is vegan, Not expensive

Cons: Use of plastic

Extremely Tasty & Cheap

Simple, but delicious! I really didn't expect it to be that good but would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes falafel! Everything is vegan except for one sauce (Aïoli ) as it contains eggs.

Pros: very tasty, very fair price, friendly owner

The best - and cheapest - falafel in Ghent

We were so in the mood for falafel and after discovering the cheap place past Mokabon has closed down, we researched other places in the city. First, we went to Greenaway. Great, but at 13 euros, very expensive. The next day we took bikes and went to #falafel. And wow I am so pleased we did. The food is incredible, so many fresh flavours and I love the use of dill in Falafel. It reminds me of my time living in Israel many years ago. There was a lot of choice for different combinations, plus you can help yourself to salads ina small box whilst you wait. The owner was really friendly. Definitely worth seeking out if you're in Ghent

Pros: great value, healthy, lots of choice

Delicious, nutritious falafel

This is actually one of the best falafels I've ever eaten. The homemade falafel with the whole wheat bread is absolutely delicious and really makes a great combination and stands out from any other falafel place. You can fill your falafel with eggplant, potatoes, etc. according to the menu. I first stumbled upon the place on New Year's day two years ago when nearly everything else was closed and have been going there ever since. No other place beats this quality for such a low price.

Ontzettend lekkere falafel. Deze wordt geserveerd in een zelfgemaakt bruin pittabroodje en smaakt duizend keer lekkerder dan die witte dingen die je normaal krijgt. Salade mag je zelf opscheppen zodat je broodje niet vol ijsbergsla zit gepropt.
De eigenaar is heel erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Een aanrader!

Pros: Lekker, Goedkoop, Vriendelijk

Cons: Weinig zitplaatsen

Tasty, fast and affordable

We had two of the falafel on the menu for lunch. The pitta was stuffed full and you choose your own side salad while they cook the falafel. Very tasty and reasonably priced. Everything is vegan apart from the garlic sauce.

Pros: Quick and tasty, Very reasonably priced

Great place! Everything is vegan with the exception of the garlic sauce. Salad (make your own) is always included with your menu. You can really leave with a full belly for a low price!
Also good for take-away.

Friendly falafel place

I arrived here after a day of cycling in February. The owner was very friendly & I had a fun conversation with him.

Eventually I had two nice falafel breads, the salad was included. Because of the second bread he urged me to take a second salad as well :)

I will come again when i'm in Ghent!

Fantastic, Affordable, Filling

Great place for all your falafel needs!
The guy behind the counter was very friendly and told me all about the different vegan options. The "falafel batter" is home-made, and so are the sauces. As a side dish, you get to mix your own salad at the salad bar.
I got the Nuba Falafel, and it was very nice. Can't wait to try more from their menu!
