First Review by MrFalafel

My favorite Maoz! - Edit

I go back here everytime I'm in London. The best Maoz in Europe.
The food always tastes fresh and it's totally vegan proof! (Not all sauses and coleslaw)
Friendly and helpful personnel, looks clean always and I recommend this place to everyone.
And not expensive at all.

Pros: Fresh vegan food, Friendly personnel , Good location

Cons: Sometimes crowded

The best salad in town - Edit

Despite the ever changing system of what's included in each deal, Maoz is my favourite place to eat in Soho.
The salads are amazing, the falafel and aubergine are delicious and even the drinks are tasty and different.
It's very much the same as Maoz in all the other cities I've visited but that's what I love about it; it's a safe vegan place in a scary dairy world!
It's also ideal end-of-the-night food when you've been out about in Soho, and a much better bet than a kebab.

Pros: Great selection of salads, Fast and friendly service , Central location

Cons: Sometimes a bit too crowded to eat in

Similar to other Maoz... - Edit

The menu here is almost the same as at the Maoz restaurants in Amsterdam; there is just a slightly smaller salad selection. The quality of the falafel is good and there are only two sauces which are not vegan - it~s a little annoying that these aren't marked but the staff are knowledgeable about which are which.

Fabulous - Edit

Some of the best Falafel I have had. Staff happy to share a joke with you. The food is really well priced especially as it is in the centre of London's Leicester Square. You grab your box with falafel balls and a piece of pita. You can then add humus, lettuce, cabbage, pickles, jalapenos, and other salads and dips. Eggplant, Feta, and baba ganoush is an extra 50p and you can upgrade the whole thing for a meal deal including chips(which were amazing) and fresh lemonade with mint for £2. Will definitely going back again and again.

Pros: Great Food, Well Priced, Friendly/Helpful Staff

average, but good for a quick snack - Edit

Having a few hours in London, I decided to grab a quick snack, so I had the pita. It wasn't in any way special, in fact it was pretty average. The atmosphere of the place doesn't exactly invite to have a date there either, but I don't think that's the point of the place anyway ;)
A big plus was the staff who were very helpful when I asked about which vegan items. All in all it's okay for a quick bite to go, but that's about it.

Pros: helpful and friendly staff, you can fill the pitas an boxes yourself, fairly priced

Cons: food is average, atmosphere, not perfectly clean

Not as good as I'd hoped - Edit

Since we've been to Maoz in Paris a few times before and gotten great food every time, we were hoping to get the same excellent food this time aswell. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good. It was rather tasteless, and the falafel were a bit hard. Also, there wasn't as much alternatives from the salad bar. But the seatingarea was spacious, and the restaurant is situated in a busy neighborhood a 5 min walk from Leicester Square.
The overall experience was OK, but not much more. There are better alternatives while visiting London!

Pros: Spacious, Centrally located, Inexpensive

Cons: Tasteless, Busy area

Tasteless - Edit

Having been to Maoz in Paris and New York this was a huge disappointment. The falafel, tabouli, and hummous were tasteless. The chips were passable, the lemonade was pretty good but overall this operation paled in comparison to the other shops I've visited. Why sweet pickles? It makes no sense. Also, the staff seemed pretty dour and the place was very cold on a cold winter day. If this is what passes for Middle Eastern food in London I'm in trouble.

Pros: decent lemonade

Cons: tastless food

Fantastic and filling food at a great price - Edit

This is a great place to come when you're hungry after a day in the capital. The food is delicious (the pitta with hummus and aubergine especially good), the buffet offers a wide selection of salad, and everyone I have taken there (meat eaters and vegans alike) have loved it. Best fast food in London.

Pros: Tasty, Quick, Filling

Cons: Small-ish seating area

MaoZ falafel kings chunkier chips than europe - Edit

Good falafel, always busy late night but a fun spot to people watch and get some good eats. Nice lime and mint cooler and good amount of seats. Also has a toilet which is a bonus in that area,

Like all other Maoz its delicious, cheap, fresh food. Chips are slightly chunkier i think, i prefer french fries :)

Pros: Good falafel, People watching, Good value

Cons: can get busy and a bit messy late night

Another satisfying Maoz location - Edit

You probably know Maoz, so I'll keep this short.

This is another satisfying Maoz location. Limited seating inside, mostly designed to eat quickly or take-away.

Mostly vegan, all-vegetarian, serving only falafel, salads and chips (french fries).

Pros: Inexpensive, All-vegetarian

Cons: Limited seating

Supreme deliciousness - Edit

Maoz is simply awesome, it's one of the main reasons I'll visit London from Ireland!

As if the falafel, hummus + salad bar done right wasn't enough, the Belgian style chips are some of the best around too.

Pros: delicious, cheap, central

Cons: none

best falafel ever - Edit

Have been coming here for years and it still stands as the best falafel I've ever had. The service is very friendly too. Get one to go and then run round the corner and eat it in the church yard on a bench with the squirrels. :)

Pros: yum, inexpensive, friendly staff

good place for a cheap simple meal - Edit

This one is cleaner and more spacious than others I've been to (Netherlands, Paris, Belgium). The food comes in fairly large amount if you're keen on the healthy accompaniments a la salad bar, tastes good, and is priced sensibly. Place makes for a good lunch or dinner.

Pros: healthy food, fairly large portions
