Great flavours and plenty of options!

Umi is one of my favourite lunch spots for dine-in or delivery. It is 100% vegetarian with plenty of vegan options.

The flavours are bright and fresh and the food feels both nourishing and satisfying. My go-to sandwich has always been the Palestinian Falafel but some of the new sandwiches are really good too! Their new schwarma wrap is easily a new favourite.

The sides are great as well. Their hummus is one of my favourites which is saying something for most vegans!

Only thing I’d say could be improved is their labelling of vegan options can be a little inconsistent across their website, deliveroo page, and printed menu.

Pros: Fresh flavours, Super creamy hummus, Meal deals

Cons: Vegan labelling can be inconsistent

Great lunch option

Part of a small chain there are plenty of options to have.
I had the Palestinian Pita and a Glasgow salad. Quick and filling.

Pros: Staff, Options

Tasty, easy, reliable

A very decent falafel - I'd say they could do with turning over the ends pf their wraps though as the juices dripped out a bit making it messier than otherwise. But generally friendly - and we just sat and chatted in their after we'd finished our meal. They have some meal deal things which my friends opted for, I didn't and had a "falafel my own way" and it turned out it was the best way (according to official records).

Best falafel in Dublin

This place is a real treat. Simple, tasty, and great value, they sell only a small number of items including falafel, served either in pitta, in a wrap, or on a plate without any bread. The staff are super-friendly, the food is all prepared fresh, the dressings are delicious, and there is plenty of seating. Plus you'll have change out of 20 euros after you buy lunch for two with drinks. Win.

decent for the price

I had a grilled halloumi sandwich. It's a wrap filled with halloumi cheese, tomato and basil pesto. To go for 5.5 euros.

It's nice, nothing special though

Great experience

I've eaten here at least 3 times in the last couple years, this restaurant was probably my first experience of a concious vegan friendly meal and I absolutely loved it.
The restaurant itself is quite small so chances are that you'll have to wait for a table quite a bit, but it is completely worth it. Anyway they offer take away so if in a rush that option is available.
This restaurant is perfect for young people and families because it has the "fast food" that kids will enjoy but in the healthy way.
The overall experience is great, good tasty food, big portions, friendly staff and a nice vibe so I definitely recommend it.

Pros: Tasty food in big portions, Friendly staff and nice establishment (good vives), Good location and easy to find

Cons: Small establisment

Best falafel and baba ganoush in town

Super friendly stuff, this smaller version of the Dame street place has the best Lebanese food for cheap prices in Dublin. The baba ganoush and the Palestinian falafel are brutal.
