This place is very local in Cairo, I tried both tamie and foll. One sandwich cost 4L.E about 0.2euro The test was amazing and the size of the sandwich was big enough so an adult need not more than 2 if you are hungry. Enjoy

We visited looking for a wrap, we had the falafel wrap and a beer for £7.45 offer. Fast service lovely staff. The falafel wrap was the best and freshest we had in a long time. Definitely worth popping into this lovely little cafe.

Whenever I’m in Brighton it always includes a trip to FilFil. The falafel is the best and the wrap with avocado and extra haloumi is excellent.

I was in Hove this weekend for the Brighton Yoga Festival and had the best felafal wrap ever. Very generous in the filling. You should open one in London.
