First Review by Kevin Meyer

tasty, knowledgeable about vegan offerings - Edit

Very pleasing meals, I hope that the knowledge of the person at the counter was continued by the staff preparing the meal. When things taste very good at a "veg-options" establishment, I'm never quite confident that what is delivered is actually vegan. Since I'm just not sure, I'll drop my score a bit.

Pros: Reasonable price, adequate portion size, bold flavors

Cons: Was what we got really vegan?

Best falafel in town and vegan baklava! - Edit

I'm obsessed with falafel. I would eat it every day if I could! So, whenever I move or visit a new area, it's one of the first things I seek out. During a recent trip to ABQ I thought I found the best falafel of my life. Nope, Yassin's has now taken that crown. Omg it's good! I've tried both the spicy falafel sandwich and the spicy falafel platter. Both amazing! The sandwich is pure perfection with the right amount of toppings and sauce. The seasoned fries were delicious too! But the platter is my absolute favorite. They have some of the best dips I've ever had! The hummus is authentic and creamy with paprika and fresh olive oil. My husband hates baba ganoush and he really enjoyed Yassin's! I loved it too! The falafel was served on top of a delicious salad with the most amazing dressing. If I could make one improvement I would say the pita served with the platter could be heated so that it isn't as chewy/tough. It's the same bread used with the sandwiches but it's less tough because it's warm.

In addition to the food, I really like the vibe in the restaurant. The staff are very friendly and the music is AMAZING! During my dinner I got to hear The Cure, Radiohead, New Order, Depeche Mode, A-HA, Tears for Fears. :D

Pros: spicy vegan falafel, GREAT music, Fair prices

Cons: None

delicious falafel - Edit

The Falafel salad is delicious. The falafels are lovely and moist and the salad is nice and fresh. Reasonably priced too.
Only down side is the use of plastic plates and cutlery even when dining in.

They have Vegan selections and the food is good. However, you need to ask them not to add too much oil, otherwise the food is too oily.

Pros: great environment , food is tasty , great customer service

Friendly Mediterranean Fare - Edit

Shortly after the Falafel House opened, Jassin hosted a vegan meetup and put on a beautiful vegan buffet. His regular menu isn't weighted heavily toward vegans or vegetarian, but you can always find some good choices. If he has some vegan baklava on hand, grab it, it is as good as any you will find anywhere.

Pros: Very friendly owner, High quality food, Central downtown location
