“Yummy lunch”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

Ordered a platter with lovely hummus , falafel, dips and pita, for two. Delicious and would have been enough got our daughter to share. She ordered a small chicken kebab , which she could not finish, so we took that away. Then she tucked into our platter , she enjoyed sharing it with us. Relaxing cafe, nice people.and the black currant chia drink was locally made too.

“OMG! Excellent Falafel - Worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

This place deserves all the raves; we had lunch here one day last week. I had the Falafel Kebab - small; huge portion and so very tasty...packed with stuff. Hubby had the Chicken Kebab, again very tasty indeed.
Small place, very busy, great staff. Well worth the stop!

“Excellent, healthy and tasty lunch!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

We had the "antipasto platter" -- really more a mezze -- a combination of many salads, really crisp falafel, and tasty dips. Really good

“Heavenly falafel”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

As we are not into pies and other typical Kiwi food, we were strolling Hardy Str in downtown Nelson for something more healthy and fresh. Falafel Gourmet attracted us with its cosy look and comfy feel. The chalkboard menu looks both simple and attractive and offers small and large portions. We went for the mixed hummus and falafel platter for two with veggies and pita bread. Simply delicious! Excellent service, fresh made food, rich portions and good atmosphere! Good value for money. Be prepared to queue over lunch time!
