The most amazing falafel you can eat are there! Be ready tho, because there is always a LOT of people in line. You will eat those in a very nice neighborhood. It's totally worth it!

Wow!wow! This is truly the most wonderful falafel I have ever tasted! Ask for the hot sauce. It really isn't hot and the flavors will explode!! The specialty is the falafel special.

order with the guys out front first then get in the queue for your heavenly falafel goodness. these are no ordinary falafel. they will blow your socks off. perfect texture and balance of flavours. from pickled veggies to eggplant to tomato to Harissa sauce, the marriage of flavours is incredible. and for 6 euros, this may be the most satisfying and filling meal you'll eat in Paris

Probably the most popular food establishment in Paris right now and rightfully so. Their falafel is out of this world. It's crisp, soft, crumbly, tangy, savory and everything else amazing. Each pita is large and filling. I especially enjoyed the grilled eggplant. It is open late and always has a line but don't worry, the line moves fast. There are dine in options as well.

Set in the Jewish neighbourhood of St. Paul, the guys at the entrance of this restaurant will tell you they have the best falafel in the world. I don't know if it's the best falafel in the world, what I do know is that the queue sometimes goes up around the corner, but the service is fast and the food well worth it. Some people might say 6 euros is a bit steep for one falafel, but you probably won't want two. They do have a pretty mean falafel, something about the bread, the chickpea balls, and their garlic and chill sauces is inexplicably good. See I don't particularly like their attitude, but I have yet to prove them wrong.

France is not just about French food. If you get tired of the classics, or if you're looking for excellent street food, l'As du Fallefel on the rue des Rosiers is the perfect place. Frequented by Lenny Kravitz, this falafel restaurant always has a line out the door, but don't be afraid -- it moves very quickly. The pita is filled with several small falafel balls, fried eggplant, pickled cabbage and tasty hummus. Ask for some spicy harissa if you're a fan. Order your sandwich to go, and eat it at a nearby park or at Place des Vosges.

The queue says it all: this falafel is worth the wait, especially for some budget snack (8 euros with drink). Best plan? Take your falafel and eat it as you stroll through the lovely Le Marais.

I'm a little biased. When I lived in Paris this place was literally three blocks away. That doesn't discount the food. This little falafel joint lives up to its hype and is rather speedy in getting you a great meal!

If you're on this street, you would see every other person carrying a wrapper or eating a falafel from this place. Follow the signs, and you'll be well rewarded.

Cheap price, absolutely delicious, and no skimping out on ingredients. Highly recommended.

Nothing beats a Sunday stroll in Le Marais with a falafel sandwich from L'As du Fallafel followed by a leisurely afternoon in the Place des Vosges. Quality no-frills falafel sandwich from the window to the street on Rue des Rosiers. You may wonder why the long queue at this place, but it is worth it for the price and experience.

This quick-lunch sandwich was suggested by my paris-resident cousin, and told me that it is THE thing to try here in 'Le Marais' area and Parisians go crazy for it. Since I was Lebanese and Falafels aren't that exotic to me, we tried it, it was generous, tasty and I liked it. One thing i didn't like is that I burped all day long after it. :/

On the rue des rosiers in the heart of Paris's Jewish quarter, l'As du falafel serves delicious Israeli-style falafel pita sandwiches complete wIth hummus, pickles, lettuce, and beets; for a few extra centimes you can add french fries to your sandwich. There's a large dine-in area, but there's often a wait. If you're in a hurry you can get a sandwich 'A emporter' (to go) from the restaurant's walk-up window.

Awesome! This place really stands for what they claim to be - the best fallafel sandwich ever. For 5,50 euros, you get the right to stand in line outside for a little while - the line moves fast - ang get your amazing fallafel sandwich, the only thing that's on the menu. Grab a fork, find yourself a place to lean on out there and have fun with it! It's delicious.

Be prepared to share a table, because this place is always packed. Service is very efficient, though, and you can't go wrong with the falafel sandwich. The roasted eggplant adds another layer of flavor, and everything was very fresh. My only gripe was the meager beer selection, especially considering that more interesting beer choices are popping up all over Paris. The problem was easily solved, however: we paid the check and headed over to Au Trappiste.

Chez Anna is further down the same street and their "Fallafel" is distinctively better. When you go to Chez Anna don't forget to go inside and pay first and then give your ticket to the guy who makes Falafel that will make you cry of joy

Very overhyped establishment in Paris. Although the falafel isn't expensive by French standards (5 Euro), I couldn't even finish mine. Maybe it's because we didn't get it with the spicy sauce? (But that can't be it!)

However, the Jewish quarter in the Marias district makes for an interesting promenade apres diner.

Possibly the best felafel I've eaten. Ever. Melt in the mouth spicy aubergine. Mmm. Worth queueing up at a tiny little hole in the wall for (don't let that put you off!)
