Convenient and Tasty - Edit

Went here with a friend for an early dinner before I went to catch a flight, and we both loved it. He's dairy free and I'm vegan, and the menus were clearly marked with what each of us could have. It was also really busy in the middle of a weekday afternoon which is always a good sign! The food was good, I loved the mix and match idea, and I would definitely go back!

Pros: Good food, Good labelling, Convenient

fabulous food - Edit

My self and my Mam went for dinner here for the first time and I would 100% go back and recommend it to anybody who likes good falafel! We order the share option for 2 which was only €14.50, sweet potato fries and a freshly made juice each. In total it came to €26.50 which was exceptional value for the food we received!

Pros: so many vegan options to choose from , freshly made juices , super cool and chilled environment

Cons: no non-dairy milk i.e.rice/oat/coconut available , little stool I had to sit on was not in anyway goo

One of my favourite restaurants - Edit

Umi falafel is my go-to restaurant, as they provide a whole lot of vegan options that are just delicious and are well specified on the menu. The falafels are so good, I had never tasted such good ones. I had a bit of trouble with their wedges at first (they have a slight lemon taste) but now I love them! Staff is great, location is handy, love it! My usual take : falafel your way with lettuce, hummus, red onion and aubergine (includes falafels) with a tahini sauce and spicy wedges. Enjoy!

Cheap and cheerful - Edit

This is a fast food place - very casual. Lines were out the door for lunch take out, but there was seating inside.

We got falafel sandwiches and french fries. Both were ok. Not great, but portions were large and food was made to order.

nice place for falafel - Edit

You pay extra for a seat. The falafel pita was good. Clearly better than your average scrubby falafel joint.

Pros: tastes good, hummus was nice, falafel was good - not overfried

Cons: pay extra for a place to sit, more expensive than other falafel kiosks

great food in a relaxed atmosphere - Edit

Had falafels, a Moroccan quinoa salad and a zingy booster drink and it was all delicious. It's a very relaxed atmosphere. Ysomeone takes your order and brings it to your table and you just pay on the way out. Would definitely go again.

Pros: Prompt and efficient service, Friendly and relaxed atmosphere, Very good food and excellent value

Cons: No alcohol but not really an issue!

really authentic and fresh - Edit

The food here is so reasonably priced and the restaurant is situated right in the centre of Dublin. The food tastes so fresh and the falafel here is the best I have tasted in Dublin. I had the falafel, aubergine and tabouleh, beautifully presented and the Taste was divine. Really recommend going here! Great vegan options too.

Nice - Edit

Nice food and I liked the staff but the food is not 100% fresh/hand made as the wedges are from frozen, and some of the soft drinks are not veggie.

The prices are good, and the portion sizes are nice and filling.

Can get very packed though and I wish there was more than one bathroom so I could wash my hands more easily.

Pros: Filling food, Good prices

Cons: Very packed

Great lunch - Edit

Really busy lunchtime eatery, offering middle Eastern fast food.
Vegan option were clearly marked and although busy, service was quick and pleasant. Although fast food there were plenty of salad options if you want heathy food.
My Palestinian falafel came with plenty of salad and veg and was mighty tasty, wedges were well spiced and hot.
The food was great, and the meal deal at euro 7.50 was a bargain.

Pros: great value, Tasty as......, location

Legends!!! - Edit

These guys rock!!
Not only is the food and falafels amazing, but as humans they're pretty awesome as well.
We were on a night out at Temple Bar, it was getting late, and they made me a DIY take home pack so my bread wouldn't get soggy!!
PS: they asked me not to say that, so don't mention it to them!!

Pros: location, quality, friendly

Cons: they're not in my home town

Tasty and cheap vegan food in the heart of Dublin City - Edit

A wonderful spot for cheap lunch or casual dinner in the very centre of Dublin city. Located on Dame St, Umi falafel is super easy to get to. Everything on the menu is less than €10 and all the food is made fresh in store each day. I ordered a sharing plate for 2, along with spicy potato wedges for €9 each. We were stuffed! The falafel was amazing, very fresh, as was the salad. Lots of vegan options, and no meat/dairy/eggs in store. The staff were very friendly too.

Pros: Fresh and good quality food, Cheap as chips, Excellent location

Cons: Popular place to eat - you may have to wait for a

Umi is just so yummy! - Edit

I have been here more than once and the food has always been to die for.
I went recently and shared their platter for two with my boyfriend.
We received a salad of our choice (Tabouleh), hummus, falafel, stuffed vine leaves,
spinach rolls and pita bread. It was more than enough for the two of us and we left fully satisfied.
The falafel is the best in Dublin. The tabouleh was so good even my boyfriend who is not a salad lover eat most of it! The stuffed vine leaves were not to my liking as I've had nicer elsewhere.
I will have togo back again and again. It's just so good!

Pros: Great food, Good value, Generous portions

Really, really good! - Edit

We stopped for a quick dinner at Umi while visiting Dublin and we were very glad we did. The Palestinian falafel is not to be missed. I'm from NYC where there are a million falafel places. I've eaten a LOT of falafel in my life and I thought Umi's Palestinian was some of the best I've ever had! The Baba Ganoush was fantastic as well. The staff was friendly and knowledgable about what is vegan and what is not. Everything was fresh and delicious and we left very satisfied.

Pros: Quick, Delicious, Lots of vegan options

Best Falafel in dublin - Edit

Hands down the best falafel in Dublin. The Palestinian is great, I also enjoy the lentil soup as well. Hummus is very tasty. Potato Hara are basically wedges with a twist. Relaxed atmosphere with extremely nice staff.
