I love their Falafel here, especially the Palestinian option with chilli sauce- yum! The staff are always friendly and its so reasonable. I do agree with some of the reviewers about it being so busy. I used to sit in and eat my falafel with a lemonade. Its got too busy for me so I tend to takeaway these days.... More

I had been looking forward to checking out Umi Falafel as middle-eastern cuisine is one of my favourites. However, I found the food to be nothing special and not particularly tasty. Perhaps the restaurant is a victim of its own success in that it was absolutely packed the day I visited - there was a long queue waiting to be... More

Stopped by Umi Falafel the other night and was pleasantly surprised by the fresh, delicious food! They have vegetarian and gluten free options, and the serving sizes were generous. Definitely someplace I'd stop by again!

My go-to place whenever I want to grab a quick bite in town. The food is really tasty, falafels are delicious (especially when sometimes they add mozarella inside!) and the service is friendly and quick. Would really recommend this place.

A great place to get falafel. Cute and intimate atmosphere to have dinner, and the price is just right! Great options for vegans and vegetarians.

Not my first time there, and nice to see it was pretty full on a Saturday afternoon, I just jumped for a quick lunch and that's exactly what I got, quickly seated by pleasant staff and my Falafel came to the table soon after, I went for the Palestinian one over the Lebanon variety, it had too much chilli for...

We had to wait for about 10 minutes before being seated at Dame Street but the service was fast, and the food tasty and generously sized.

There was a wait for a table at this small, hip and informal restaurant - but it was so worth it! I found all the items on the menu tempting, but went for the Palestinian falafel - which was awesome! Loved everything about it, including the thin and fresh pitta bread, the tasty sauces, the eggplant and the falafels, which... More

In the past 10 days, have been to Umi Falafel in Cork three times, I have also been to the Dublin branch and I am just delighted that they are now in Cork.
