Amsterdam Falafelshop Reviews

Add your review for Amsterdam Falafelshop.

  • crichelle reviewI don't even know where to begin with this place. I could start by pointing out that the falafel is heavenly, follow up that the topping bar is both fresh and immense, and end with calling it one of the best values in all of DC. But this is silly, if you live nearby, you probably have already eaten there, and if not, then you dislike falafel and nothing I say will change your mind. Short story, go get a falafel next time you are in the mood for a delicious, cheap, and filling meal.

  • Drew JThe service and food are always great! The falafels and fries are made fresh each time you order, and all the toppings are delicious.

    55555 by Drew J


  • Trevor PGet the sandwich and smash it to break up the falafel before loading it up with toppings

    33333 by Trevor P


  • Aleksandra IIt is amazing! 100% original Belgium frites;) njam njam

    55555 by Aleksandra I


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

    33333 by Anna Sotnikova


  • Hannah JSandwiches 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.

  • SK JVery authentic. Love the variety of toppings & fillings to go with the falafel sandwich.

    55555 by SK J


  • Tom M.This place is awesome. You're given falafel in pita and then make-your-own style add stuff.

    55555 by Tom M.


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

    55555 by Melissa Chai

  • Sandy YinFries with garlic mayo for life

    55555 by Sandy Yin


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

    55555 by Tj s


  • Katarina KatsmaThis place is awesome. The guys are cool, atmosphere chill, and the food fantastic.

    55555 by Katarina Katsma


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

  • Sara L.They take euros. Also, each falafel is made to order so keep an eye on which one is yours!

    55555 by Sara L.


  • spo0nmanTakes you back to Amsterdam for sure! Abundance of garnishes. Go for the beeteoot and chillies. Belgian style fries seal the deal.

  • Tina T.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)

  • The FeastThis 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.

    33333 by The Feast
