I’d like to start by saying, I don’t usually leave bad reviews... if you click on my profile and see the reviews I have left, I love to leave positive reviews. I have checked the other one/two star reviews here, and can see a few people have had a similar experience to myself.

Upon arriving at the eatery, the owner said to my partner ‘try the nice hot falafel with the sauce, and give one to your girlfriend and maybe she will smile, as she never smiles’... Not only had the owner spoken about me in the third person, addressing my partner rather than myself, when I was right in front of him, he also implied that for some reason I should be smiling, for the comfort of others. It’s 2020 and I thought we were past the time of men telling women when they should smile. I was not in the mood to smile and so ignored his comment.

He then offered me a falafel, I said no thank you and politely explained that I don’t like falafel. I am actually pregnant and have strong food aversions at the moment, not that I should need to justify my choice to not eat a falafel, I mean, come on. He then said loudly to a guy who was waiting at the counter that people say they don’t like something and then they miss out and don’t know what they are missing... again, making a comment referring to me but not addressing me directly.

I ended up walking away trying not to cry, while my partner waited for his falafel. Like the other low star reviewers here, I felt verbally abused. It was a really bizarre situation and one I haven’t experience before when going out to eat, and hope not to experience again.

I will add that my partner said the falafel was fantastic, and it looked amazing so I am sure the food it great.

This man is a hilarious, a fun loving guy with a great sense of humor. i have been visiting his shop for a few years now, and have witnessed his dynamic with customers first hand on many.. many! occasions. He is incredible, The few 1 star reviews on here are completely exaggerated I could not imagine such a wonderful man ever (abusing a woman) or man for that matter! he is a hard fast worker and always has a wonderful smile on his face, and makes a falafel to die for! Seriously so great, and 100% vegan! easily the best falafel i have come across in Australia.
His sense of humor is never malicious he just tries to reel people in to have a taste of his samples with a smile and a joke that never crosses lines. will continue to come back for years He has moved his shop near 16 Coondoo st kuranda also by the way!

Best falafel I have ever eaten ! It also can be a good healthy vegan choice.
I go there very often cause I always enjoy tasting this authentic recipe . Bread is very good too and you can buy an organic lemonade to drink with and refresh yourself. Price is also fair! Really recommend it.
