Excellent felafel

We were given a sample of a felafel and that convinced me. Everything was vegan except for two items. I got a pita pocket with sun dried tomatoes. It was really well filled and balanced with the filling. Even at the bottom of the pocket there was a felafel. Amazing!

Love their setup.

The way the restaurant is setup to get you your food works amazing. There are about 7 of them lined up, as a person is free they call you over and make what you’d like. I feel this is very effective and quick. I ordered the falafel pita and it was filled to the maximum with goodies. Delicious. #Veganuary

Fab falafel

Really tasty food, with a bonus falafel whilst we waited. Gutted they had run out of aubergine but delicious nevertheless.

Pros: Delicious food , £5.99 for a falafel wrap isn't too bad

Cons: Need to sell chips too!

Cheap & good

A tidy place where you can choose from some very filling and quite cheap (by London standards) pitas. Very kind service. If you are looking for something on a budget in London, you shouldn't be disappointed, especially as the dishes made on a regular basis can be customized very thoroughly.

How have I not been here before?! I have walked by so many times and didn’t realise how good this place would be. They do the best falafel for miles.

Best falafel pitta's in London (so far)

I've got so much love for Pilpel as a company but Queen's Head Passage outlet is closest to my office. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and the vegan falafel pitta's with chargilled aubergine are absolutely delicious and great value for money. I really can't recommend Pilpel highly enough. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Delicious, Healthy, Great value

excellent service, excellent food, interesting music

Excellent and tasty veg/ vegan food. Enthusiastic service from the man constructing my falafel container. I didnt want bread so he gave me extra salad and falafel. I ate in the restaurant whilst Metallica followed BonJovi which followed eye of the tiger. It made me feel empowered whilst eating my falafel.

Pros: vegan, excellent service

Cons: non that i can think of

Great falafel

Great falafel with salad and hummus. Very friendly and quick staff, place is smaller, fast food style, clean and nice. If you are tourist, is it a great place for rest and some food.

Pros: tasty falafel, inexpensive

Good felafel, friendly staff

We 9a family of 5) ate here in August. If you are at St. Paul's - this is the closest vegetarian place to eat at. It only serves felafel, which is more of a snack/sandwich than a real meal but the food was good and the portions were large and satisfying. The staff were extremely nice and strived to satisfy. They even gave us a free dessert (baklava). We thought it was rather expensive for a felafel (4.65 for a basic felafel, about 1 pound for extras such as egg or cheese) but then you are paying for the location. You can opt for a dish (which costs more) and then you get the salads in the dish, the pita on the side and then you can add another pita and share the portion. It seems like many people who work nearby order take out here but you can also eat in.

Pros: convenient location, friendly staff, good food

Cons: limited menu
