Love this place! The quality is consistently high and the price is right. Ask for jalapeno peppers with your falafel.

Whenever I go home to Nelson for a holiday I look forward to visiting falafel gourmet. It’s the best falafel I’ve had. Chicken and lamb options also very tasty. Highly recommended to everyone visiting Nelson and looking for a place to eat! Very reasonable prices...More

Great falafel pita, the small is a good size unless you're starving. Very long wait for takeaway but I believe it was worth it.

My husband and I eat here almost every week, and I have been going for almost 18 years religiously! Super fresh, healthy and tasty. A local must!

Excellent option for this type of food. Very casual sit down area, good for a quick uncomplicated visit. Lamb Kebap was enormous, though not cheap at $20 including feta. Very tasty though and set me up for the rest of the day.
