The Zagat Review
"Crispy" , "awesome" falafel is the star at this Mid-Market option for all-vegan Mediterranean and Middle Eastern plates with gluten-free choices; there's "really great service" at the counter, so even if it's "very much a hole-in-the-wall" , the wallet-friendly food is "sooo worth it."

Not a sit down restaurant, just a hole in the wall place that you can grab and go. The falafel is AMAZING and worth every cent. Best food we had all trip. Friendly staff too. Just be aware that though there are a couple of seats outside this is more a grab and head to the hotel/work to eat. Especially if it's raining. So worth it though!

Its all vegan you can also ask for gluten free options, its a hole in the wall dont let the location or place fool you food is great and so is the person taking order he takes him time to explain what they have and goes over order. There is no seating but you can take it to Westfield and eat there. My friends were nervous at first walking here as surrounding area is filled with interesting individuals walking around. At first they didn't want to eat there since there was no place to sit down. Once we started ordering a line had started behind us. So obvious to me if locals who work and live in area eat here it has to be good. I do prefer amd choose locally owned restaurants and coffee places so i am usually not hesitant on trying new places. This place was good and even my friends agreed. We will be back on our next trip back to the city

Warm fluffy pita pocket of fresh vegetables and falafel. The only reason I'm docking a star is because I was expecting stellar falafel, and although there was nothing to complain about, it wasn't stellar. Perhaps it's a matter of taste, bit I prefer the falafel at Inshallah.
