    I did not understand what is special about those falafels. 8$ per regular one is quite a lot. The taste was just ok.

    Sandwiches can be a bit difficult to handle, so grab a bowl if you're worried about being messy. Be adventurous with the toppings, they're all worth it.

    Awesome falafel...Toppings galore... If you get fries, try mixing the curry ketchup with a bit of the Dutch mayo for dipping sauce. NOM

    Pro tip: smash your sandwich, then open it up so you have room for toppings. Cole slaw is a must.

    Their annoying persistence of not offering plates so you have to spend minutes (that seem like hours) precariously cramming long awkward slabs, I meant slivers...

    Takes you back to Amsterdam for sure! Abundance of garnishes. Go for the beeteoot and chillies. Belgian style fries seal the deal.

    Falafels here are the best I've EVER had. And I've eaten my fair share. Super crowded. But that means it's good. Next time I won't order fries. Falafel is enough. Can't wait to go back.

    Skip the fries, they're not THAT good and pay attention to your fab falafel: 2 hands at all times (lose a ball on the floor- pick it up. No one cares and it keeps the A/M rat situation at bay)

    This late-night hangout is far more satisfying than Jumbo Slice. Pile yours high with items from the salad bar, which mercifully isn't priced by weight.
