Falafel is certainly low key. So low key, in fact, that you might not even notice it when strolling past. With its green décor, Palestinian flags and memorabilia decorating the walls, it seems a million miles away from the flashy new eateries popping up at an alarming rate in all directions. Though not a vegetarian restaurant, the range available for those who don’t eat meat is more than enough.
Falafel (the signature dish) is good, available alone or in a wrap. The plate that really makes this unpretentious take-away shine, however, is the mezze platter, comprised of a variety of tasty dips and salads. I’d highly recommend the spicy potatoes. The tables by the window are perfect for people watching on what can only be described as one of the cultural hearts of Manchester, the Curry Mile.
In case you weren’t already sold, a meal here comes to under £ 5 a head – what’s not to love!
