Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fast and friendly service with soft, pillowy pitta bursting with filling and sauces topped with crisp falafel and plenty of flavour. Affordable and delicious. Warmly recommended.

Took an hour and 10 mins for even our drinks and then the coffee was tepid. Shocking service. No apology, told its coming...only for 40 minutes later..nothing. Get your act together.

Ordered a hummus salad box. Ruined it for me; wasn't expecting this. Made it vinegary rather than crisp. Possibly I should have noticed what the young woman was putting in the box ...but, 10 - 15 bits of pickle! See the pic. At my age...( mid 60s) this is not good. Times are hard but £5.50 is a lot for half a box of sloppy vegetables. Actually, here's a thing ; if you're going to serve something in a box fill more than half of it-or use a smaller box. I hear that the falafals are excellent. And,...yes...the staff do waft around serving as if in slow motion but that's Stroud for you.More

We had a coffee and got apple and cinnamon drink here and then took away their hummus, cabbages, and a green sauce made from coriander and it was so good! We've eaten it with two Meals now and loved it, wish we had this in...Bath! Also stocked up on persevered lemons. Will def come again if we visit Stroud againMore

I arrived in Stroud a disheveled, sweaty cyclist 70+ miles into a bikepacking trip and in desperate need of proper vegan food. I left Stroud in a lofty state of foodie euphoria and could think of nothing else but when I would try something like...it again. Pitta packed full of falafel and salad and tahini…oh so good! Flavours were balanced well, bread was hot and fresh, falafel top notch. This may suggest as much about my appetite as it does about the food, but I can still assure you the grub at Falafel Mama is the bomb. If you visit Stroud, just go.More

Very nice, but 15 minutes for a falafel pitta takeaway is way too long! It wasn’t even busy! I would avoid if in a rush a lunch time!

Very tasty! Bit painful watching the staff make the falafel though, they have a very relaxed (stroudie) approach… that said they are all very friendly. Looking forward to my next visit.
