Don't expect a restaurant as this is more of a takeaway place where there are only a few tables inside and no waiter. Strip away the peripheral superficial decor and this unpretentious little Falafel shack tucked away in Shepherds Bush market is undoubtedly the best Falafel joint in the whole of London. It’s very close to the main road, so you don’t have to venture too far into the market.
With a variety of Falafels to choose from, they have innovative flavour combinations to cater for the Western palate including fillings such as Feta Cheese, Halloumi Cheese, Spicy Tomato and more.
I asked the chef to prepare me the traditional Lebanese Falafel which includes just five ingredients; tomatoes, red pickles, green pickles, parsley and Tarator sauce. Tarator is a wonderful Tahini based sauce used as a condiment for many Middle Eastern dishes. Having been raised on falafels, I know what a good falafel is supposed to taste like. Theirs certainly don’t fall short compared to those I’ve eaten in the Middle East. Crispy, fresh, warm – each bite is truly mind blowing.
Prices are reasonable where portion sizes are very generous. Regular wraps are between £4.75 - 6.25 and the extra large between £5.50 - 7.30. The cafe is open 11.00 - 18.00 Mondays to Saturdays. If only they were open for dinner too.
I have been coming here for years and this place never disappoints. It is spotlessly clean and consistently excellent with very fast service. A mono-product concept where quality is very high. The owner who is Palestinian also runs the café. He merits more than just a recommendation. He deserves an award for this place.
It's the one of the best Falafel's I've ever had, the staff are welcoming and friendly and the price is really reasonable
