Samosa was dried out. Falafel was okay but I feel ill now. Won't go back. Used to be better. I was disappointed.

I have eaten here several times - it's one of my favourite places for a quick, satisfying and inexpensive meal. Their falafel pitas are outstanding and they make them up very quickly after ordering. There are tables to eat in or you can take out. It's in a small, busy, corner mall at West 10th Ave. and Alma, so parking... More

Falafel was not freshly cooked...they just shoved it in the microwave. Although they offer a wide range of condiments, they were pretty light on the application. The falafel wrap I ordered was very, very dry. SO had the chicken wrap. It was pre-prepared and then kept in a steamer container. He also commented on the lack of sauce in the... More

I pop in to pick up the chick pea salad and the falafels... the smell is always so inviting... the rest of the food I am not overly impressed with... it's ok... nothing spectacular...

We wanted a quick lunch and ducked in here. The food is certainly reasonably priced and it is quickly delivered. However, our falafels and dolmades were warmed up in a microwave on a previously used plate. Although filling and reasonably flavourful, we both ended up with stomach aches that afternoon. Next time we'll go around the corner to Broadway.

I live a few blocks away from Mac Falafel and always come here when I don't feel like cooking. Great cheap eats!

Work near here, go there regularly, the people are friendly and the food is great. On weekdays they often have a chicken bun for around 3$ that's almost an entire meal.

Stumbled upon Mac Falafel while waiting in the car, the smells coming out of the kitchen of roasting chicken and lamb were awesome.... Had a great chicken/rice/salad for $7, it was huge. Went back the next day for lunch and tried the Falafel pita sandwich....$4 and huge.....nothing fancy but great food!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A family run restaurant that makes superb home-made meals and they offer friendly service. The price is right and it's a clean place. If you just want to grab the food an go, it's a 5 star rating, if you want to find a comfy place to sit, then this isn't the best place for that and would have a... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
