I have seen this place for few years but never stopped there, till this time when my lover and I were bored and not sure what to eat, so we stopped there. The place was empty( not a good sign) The lady behind the counter was not very friendly ,nor polite, as if we were bothering her. We ordered the... More

A friend suggested I try this place, since I love falafel. It is in a shopping plaza, so parking is a bit challenging at pick times. The ambiance is not so good, so maybe a take out will be better. This is the reason I didn't give it a 5 star.The hummus was very good too. Friendly service. Would definitely... More

We visit weekly, love this place. Ask to have French Fries added to the falafel! Great food and service.

I first discovered Amir's Falafel in October 1988 by chance after leaving a Jazz convention at the Universal City Sheraton. What luck! I went the countless times told many friends about it, used to see people I know by chance there sometimes, how much does that happen in LA? I knew Amir and if the bill was seven dollars, he...

This mall stop is really worthwhile, a great range of salads/vegetables/hummus/babaganoush to add to your falafel plate. My husband loves the kebab. WE like that they remember us.

A buddy of mine that lives in Studio City, CA suggested Amir's for lunch. There's not a lot of available seating, but my falafel sandwich was very good, reasonably priced, and very large. I hope to go back soon.

I've passed by this place so many times for so long and finally decided to try it out. First off the service is excellent. They really want to make their custoomers feel welcomed and satisfied, which is a point itself. The food, meh, could be better. I ordered the Chicken Shawarma sandwich. It felt like there was something missing in... More

I've been eating at this place for 35 years, and it all this time it continues to be the best of the best. The falafel balls are delicious, spicy and light, and this truly distinguishes this from many other places. The plates come with your choice of sides including Israeli salad, Curry carrots, Hummus, Eggplant salad, and more. All are... More
