Went for dinner on Christmas Eve. It's a very casual place to eat. We had a meze to share and a few extras. The food was wonderful and lots of vegetarian choices. Very good value for money could not finish all our food.

We had a great tasting dish for 2, plus a bottle of good wine and some extra fried meat. Enjoy the new furniture and the pleasant restaurant (it's neither a fast food nor a proper restaurant - it fits right in between). Price really cheap for an european capital

A very sympathetic and pleasant restaurant with an authentic Lebanese food very well prepared and in huge portions. The prices are excellent. The service is very good and the nice attendants very pleasant. One should wait for queues, but this is the price of the restaurant's success. I 've been two times in the restaurant and I strongly recommend it... More

They have good and cheap food. We took a plate with falafels and hummus and we both ate in the same plate because we were not so hungry. It was really enough for a light dinner. The plate costs about 6€ if I remember well. It is a place where locals go. It is not a luxurious restaurant, it is... More

As an Israeli, I am hard to impressed by falafel. But Abi Falafel managed to do just that. The patties themselves are really nice, and the different plate dishes are really tasty and colourful. For the vegans among us, the menu includes clearly stated vegan plates.

I ordered lentil soup, which was fantastic on the cold day and later falafel plate which contained 6 falafels, salat with tahini, hummus, beans and potato. Everything was amazing and flavours were fantastic. Also the place itself is small and cute and staff is very kind. l

a reasonably priced menu, with decent options for both vegetarians and meat lovers, offering above average satisfaction to the taste buds. if you ain't too finicky with what is authentic and what is too localised, this place is a good choice for a quick meal at any time of the day. one can select from rolls/wraps of various kinds as...

A good variety of oriental choices from salads, delicious and hearty lentil soup to combo dishes, all filled with yummy spices. Vegetarian and vegan options as well. Do not miss out the dessert section! You get a good value for the price and the ambient is really nice too.

the oil they use to fry is old and they don't change it often enough. This has been my second time there ( and my friend's as well) that I had heartburn and stomach pain the whole day afterwards..
