“Great falafel with lots of veggies!”
Review of Kuumba du Falafel

It is hard to find; but well worth the effort! Unassuming place, but clean and super hip in its bareness. Menu is simple, people come for the falafel. But the twist is that the falafel comes with a lot of veggies which was super good! And very reasonable priced.

This place is great! Fresh produce isn't easy to find but here we found the falafels were full of it.

They are a great size. The one in the picture cost ¥1,200 and was well worth it. Check it out for sure!

Rude service and microscopic servings, even by Japanese standards.
I will give them kudos for attempting to recreate; a much beloved taste, but don't do it. Don't waste your money on their overly priced falafels.

Went to get some late night dinner from Kuumba du Falafel, as it was within walking distance of our room and our host had recommended it. It was not as great as it was made out to be, regrettably.
First of all, keep these tips in mind: one of the guys who is present here speaks basic English only. They do not allow one sandwich to be cut in half, but ordering one whole is more economical than ordering two halves, and you could always cut it in half yourself if you want to share.
Bear in mind each whole falafel sandwich is humongous; unless you are starving, I doubt you`ll be able to finish it by yourself. Half a sandwich is a pretty filling meal by itself.
The sandwiches themselves though, left something to be desired. Nothing was really made fresh- the sandwiches were only assembled on the spot. And there was a disappointing lack of falafels, the main component of the sandwich! There was just too much lettuce and other leaves, making it seem like you were eating a jungle more than anything. Lots of hummus as well, but it was not too much in excess.
The lentil soup we ordered was just tasteless.Filling, but tasteless.
There were some high points though. The few falafels hidden at the bottom of the sandwich were very good, and the extra yellow sauce was tasty as well.
The sandwiches tended to fall apart while eating, and the prices were on the high side. If there had been less greens and more falafels, perhaps it would have resulted in a tastier sandwich and less falling apart.
In concusion, this place was a hit-and-miss, not as great as it was made out to be.

Had almost everything on the menu. No dish left us wanting more, really clean and flavourful food. Amazing personal service.
