“Best falafel in the world”
Review of Kuumba du Falafel

Kuumba du Falafel
Ranked #592 of 9,040 Restaurants in Shibuya
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2015

Based on classic falafel, they make an original taste using four sources, green perilla leafs, homemade natural yeast pita bread, and super fresh vegetables. I ate many falafels in New york, Palestine, Israel, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Tokyo (yet Egypt) , But I think It's a world's best falafel.

I love falafels and Kuumba does a very good job. The taste is definitely Japanese, especially as they include shiso leaf as part of the vegetable garnish. They give you a squeeze bottle of hot-sauce to apply to your liking. I ordered iced mint tea and whilte it tasted great, it was very small. The space is more of a take out shop in size, I sat at the service counter to eat. It is sparsely decorated and utilitarian. As I recall my half sandwich (which is the size of your average falafel sandwich at a place like Mamouns in NYC) was Yen 8,000 (appx. $7.50 USD), which is kinda high. Lastly, while I don't like to criticize about a restaurant's location, in the case of Kuumba, well, since it is a falafel place, being so far away from Shibuya station (yes there is another station closer to it but still...) it is difficult for me to say I would go back though I would very much like to. When in Tokyo you find yourself hankering for a falafel sandwich and willing to trek over to it, You won't be disappointed with Kuumba.
