One of the great Felafels

This simple falafel cart doesn’t have a lot of options but everything is perfect for a quick meal. And the falafels which are cooked before your eyes are just superb and moist. You can have a lunch size pocket up to a lunch tray. A great alternative to the meaty stuff around the corner and not at all expensive

Pros: Great Felafels, Reasonable prices , Quick service

Cons: Not a huge range

Best Falafel

I was so surprised at how delicious a lunch box from this place was. The falafel was cooked perfectly and the sauces and salads were so good as well. Cheap and pretty healthy lunch option!

Pros: Cheap, Yummy, Convenient

Cons: Cash only

Delicious falafels!

Changed my perception of falafels, not at all dry at all. Only downside is cash only but relatively cheap!

Delicious Falafels

Highly recommend this as an affordable lunch spot. Super delicious falafels, been there twice and most recently the falafels were made right in front of me. They have a few different size options, the attached photo being the middle size and was very filling.

Everything vegan. However is cash-only, but there is an atm right near the kiosk.

Found at the back of Prahran Market near The Essential Ingredient.

The best falafels around

My partner and I have described these as the best falafels going around for years and its pleasing to read that other reviewers agree. Everything is fresh and home made, including the pitas. The pita chips are great too.

Pros: best falafels around, everything vegan, fresh

Cons: sells out fast, hard to find a smile in service

One of the best

All Vegan and super tasty. Served in a pocket rather than a wrap, the falafel balls are well cooked, not hard and overly crunchy like some and are served with delicious salads and sauces. You can also buy the balls on their own to snack on as you walk around the market.

Pros: All Vegan, Quality food, Quick service

Best falafel in the world

Ive eaten my fair share of falafels but these are the best.

Its a little cart inside the Prahan market (my favourite market in Melbourne). There is seating available right by the cart.

The hummus is perfect and they come individually for 80cent each or in pitas with salad. Everything is vegan a the owner in vegan. It's the perfect lunch if your in the area

Pros: All vegan, very reasonably priced
