Reviews for The Flying Falafel

This place used to be so bomb Now though it's practically inedible. Like others have said, every time I go in there's a new set of staff who I've never seen before, and none of them seem to have been trained at all. Service is shocking, orders are often forgotten or made incorrectly, the menu seems to be constantly changing. I used to love coming here, and have tried to look past the many shortcomings but today my food was just bizarre. A new menu lead me to receive a plate full review

Ooh yes. Even if you’re not in falafel mood, get the chick’n. When it’s freshly fried it really lands. Unless you’re really hungry, the dishes are typically enough for two servings. It’s fun how they come with three sides—I really like the smoky baba ganoush and the roasted cauliflower. This isn’t a place you go to for its atmosphere—you go here for a fill-me-up on hearty delicious food.

Food is 3.5-4 star good. Ordering experience has gotten worse over the last two months since switching to a self-service system. Orders are placed by customer using a self-service tablet. One of two tablets not working, orders slow to enter and complete, line of customers back up in the mean time, and I for one, went to eat elsewhere. I fix IT for a living would rather not be exposed to its shortcomings during lunch.
