Falafel House
Falafel House, now at 760 Yonge Street, makes the same delicious falafel as they used to in their former location at Roy Square.

Yesterday I happened to be in Yonge & Bloor area, at around 1pm, I saw a restaurant called Falafel House (760 Yonge Street). I had decided to give it a try.
The restaurant was very dirty from the inside and looked like no one clean it in a very long time.
The food part was the worst. I ordered Falafel (in a restaurant called Falafel House) I had never experienced such a bad falafel it was very dry and tasted like it was deep fried long ago, the pita was old as well (minimum 3 days old) the stuffed it with a ? a slice of tomato and lettuce that turned brown. As a side I ordered their salad platter (what a nightmare).

It's the worst Falafel in Canada. WAY people eat in there.

I don't know what planet Mr Smith is on, but I have eaten at Falafel House several times and the falafel balls have always been fried right in front of me and the overall sandwich is anything but dry. More like bursting with flavor. Get the super falafel. You won't be disappointed.

I don't know what plant Mr. Smith is on either. I ate here on a trip to Toronto and got the falafel plate with your choice of different salads. I LOVED the falafel. I dream about the food here and want it again. It's a small, older place, but everything was so tasty.

mr. smith???? more like mr broken tastebuds. This was the best falafel that I've ever tasted. PERIOD. Unless Johnny here grew up in Isreal and knows something about falafel that I don't, I gotta say that I strongly disagree, and its a crying shame that he got the first post about this gem of a falafel house.

What stopped me going there was night just stopped in for dinner - a light dinner - it was around their closing them and so I see the guy packing me left over pieces for chicken that were gathered in a bowl before I even got there. Thought nothing of it at the time...i mean it was their closing time so they had packed food. One or two bites later - got these couple nasty dry hard pieces of chicken in mouth. almost like you are chewing on a piece of wooden stick. Absolutely disgusting. I ended up throwing away half of my shirwarma because of it. Obviously they served me a piece of left over chicken pieces that were left there or had been there for a while. If chicken is dry and crusty - throw it in the garbage you don't serve that to your customers. Total disrespect. After that I made a promise to myself that I'm never going there again. I totally agree with John Smith, the restaurant looks absolutely disgusting. All you mf don't harrass someone if they are brutally honest.

I'm going to have to agree with the haters. I went there on my way home from the TRL recently, and didn't want to go all the way down to the new(ish) Ghazale at Church and Wellesley. I was so disappointed. Worst falafel of my life. I didn't exactly throw it away, because, come on, it's still a falafel, but it didn't even compare.

Just had a chicken shawarma there. The service was plain slow and awful for the lunch rush. The pita was cold and hard, the chicken cold and dry, and left a funny taste in my mouth that I hope won't become food poisoning. Don't waste your money here.

I have eaten there many times over the last number of years. The super falafel is my favourite choice... fills you up, tastes good, reasonable price and packed with healthy ingredients. For Middle-eastern / Lebanese, they are a good option.

I can only comment on the falafal on a pita, but it sucked. They gave me 2 falafal, a few shreds of lettuce, some onion and a few pieces of tomato. No tabouli, no chick peas, no turnip. They then drenched it in two sauces without asking me and then refused to remake it. Not recommended.

When they were located in Roy Square, before it was torn down, it was a great place. Good food & good prices. Shortly after moving across the street, it seemed that new owners took over. Since then the service, quantity and quality have deteriorated. I used to have wait in line at the old place everytime I went in because it was so popular. Now you're lucky if you see one person in there. Such a shame.

I lived in TO before i moved to Ottawa-the pitiful excuse for a nation's capital-and still remember Falafel House warmly. Their medium daily special was really tasty and excellent value for money.

Went I here once was in line with a few males in front and behind me. The staff served every male in front and behind me and did not serve me to very last. I just smiled and left. Awful service I'll never be back.
