Decent - Edit

Food is decent and price is very good. Nothing to rave about, but it’s a nice option for vegan friendly fast food and the staff is friendly.

Best falafel I ever had - Edit

Love this place with all my heart. The food is so tasty and staff is always very friendly. I used to go there every week when living in Dublin. Have not been able to find better falafel around the world! The lentil soup and babaganoush is a must have. Very affordable.

Pros: Affordable, Friendly staff, various options

My favorite place to have cheap but quality vegan/vegetarian food in Dublin. They offer healthy options as well like salads, and they have very good lunch meal deals! I usually bring non vegetarian friends to eat here and they love it!

Pros: Quality food, Cheap, You can create your own wrap

Cons: Busy at lunch time

Good hummus, decent falafel - Edit

Had dinner here one of the nights based on recommendations not only here but TripAdvisor. It’s good, no complaints at all about the food for the most part. Beware they serve bread with everything so you’re going to get really full or some will go to waste (wish it was mentioned before we ordered so many items). Not the best falafel I’ve had but it’s very good. The hummus is REALLY good however. Multiple ways you can order these things as sides or sandwiches/wraps.

Pros: Inexpensive, Multiple options

Cons: Dirty while we were there, Slow to get food

One of the best places in Dublin for vegans.

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
