There were 12 of us; 9 had never had falafel. 12 were satisfied. It is a quick shop - come in, line up, pay, serve, and move on. Small and simple decor, but always great. Previous reviews state you cannot reserve, but they have added little ketchup containers to pile up more toppings. It is great this way, once you... More

Sometimes you go into a place because the 11 sophomores you've taken to model UN for the weekend are against eating at the places you recommend. And you're grateful to them for the rest of your life. Amsterdam Falafel serves two foods: falafel (double fried) and fries (of the Dutch variety). You can put all kinds of toppings on your... More

Yum! This place is so good. Every topping tastes different from every other topping, and they are very particular with sanitation at the toppings bar. It's the only place I've been in DC where the falafel can compete with NYC's. The only thing that would make this place better is if they gave you an actual plate, because I always... More

A great place to get falafels! You can get three or five in a pitta bread and then help yourself to an add it yourself topping bar. The falafels are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The topping bar offers a wide variety of delicious toppings that can make anyone happy. Friendly staff.

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while exploring the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of D.C. The food was great, some of the best falafel we've ever had. The staff member (who we think might've been the owner) was very helpful and informative. There are tons of toppings that you can put on a sandwich or bowl. You're also allowed to... More

After tasting these freshly fried falafels it was like I'd never had falafels before. It takes a few minutes for them to be shaped and cooked, but then they are crispy and delicious. The choice of condiments was amazing. Indoor and outdoor seating. Soda fountain.

I have been to Israel and this was a very good replication of the falafel sandwichs there. Crispy, flavorful falafel balls in a tasty pita. Unlimited toppings bar with 30 or so sauces, spreads, veggies, and salads! Fresh, tasty, delicious Mediterranean shop.

Thank btyson11
