Don't eat inside, it costs more. 6E for a Falafel pita, 8.50E for chicken. Great food, pay cash in the line outside or credit card inside. Travelling is expensive this is great and value for money for Paris. Dinner done.

Those ppl giving it more than 1 star, clearly never ate or don't know how reel falafel tastes. This is a tourist trap. No need to add anything else

On a recommendation from our apartment hosts, we tried L'As du Fallafel and were not disappointed. My mother, brother and myself got a table inside (you can line up outside to get takeaway) and shared the fallafel plate and schwarma plate. Both came with pita bread, a variety of sides (cabbage, houmous, eggplant, tomato and cucumber salad etc) and the schwarma plate came with chips. We also tried their mint lemonade which was very sweet and refreshing. The only downside is that the staff were somewhat brusque!

There's always a line but it moves quickly, so don't be deterred. I'm a little embarrassed to say it was the best thing I ate in Paris, but I think it's true! We had a falafel and veggie plate with crunchy fresh veggies and hot crispy falafel, soft chewy warm pita, delicious dips... A roasted eggplant dish they brought by accident - was so good I'm inspired to try to make it at home. Fresh and delicious - no pretense!

We had seen this place highlighted on a TV show and couldn't wait to try it out. Thankfully we knew in advance about the long lines, as it can be quite intimidating to walk up to. They had one employee walking the line taking people's orders and payment up front (I think it could be cash only then?) and then you just had to wait for your food. The falafel was tasty and crispy, and the falafel sandwich was packed with so many delicious flavors. So worth it!

Only small gripe was the staff inside weren't very nice. We were sent inside to get our little cup of falafel as a side dish, and as I tried to stay out of the way while my fiancé waited, I was leaning up against a stool. Two staff people assumed this meant I was planning to eat inside, even though I had no food in my hands, and angrily told me I had to leave, only people who pay more money get to stay inside. The cook behind the counter did the scolding wag-his-finger thing at us.
