Firstly, a great find!

Situated in the heart of Stroud, this is the best tasting falafel I've had anywhere so far. A small unassuming café with lots of light coming through the windows and some seating upstairs, It's not particularly smart but then that's not really what they're going for.

The staff are friendly and polite, the service is relatively fast and the ambience is relaxed. You get to choose the salad and sauces as they make your 'Falafel in Pitta' from scratch and there's also a few extras that you can help yourself to fill your pitta to the brim.

One of my go-to places in the Cotswolds now for a quick lunch or snack, just a shame the opening hours are quite short...

I’ve always hated falafel as it’s usually dry & pretty disgusting! So when my wife said let’s have lunch at Falafel Mama I was against it.

However being Christmas nothing was open & the few places that were had stopped serving lunch. So I was forced to go.

I opted for the half pitta as I didn’t think I could do a whole one. But with that first bite I was a changed man!

DELICIOUS not dry but crunchy then smooth nice salad & great sauces. Was so so good I’m now looking forward to my next visit with delight not dread!

Probably the best place for lunch in Stroud

Ok so I am not THE expert, but I grew up near an Israeli Falafel House in London, ate the best Falafels in Berlin and Paris when I lived there, and have always searched out these yummy babies wherever I go. This place has special soft pittas (apparently brought specially from London) and the falafels themselves are a perfect balance of spicy and herby, not too dry, and combined with the fantastic salads and the best pickles, it's all just mmmmmmmm. GO if you like one of the best street foods available!
We order just the balls and pittas regularly for when we have guests over, and I'll be getting some in for the Christmas period! Well done Falafel Mama family!
