Wanted to get take out that was filling, healthy-ish and cheap. This hit the spot. It's a help yourself type of place though so no frills with the service.

To start, this falafel is amazing. However when I was at the falafel bar I had the humus ripped out of my hand by the worker and honestly was so offended I needed to leave. Who takes the topping I paid for?

The small is still a big falafel and the price is great. Lots of options. We had it delivered by UberEATS and unfortunately it took a while to get to us, so the fries were very cold. We wanted Dutch mayo but that never got...More

Inexpensive, delicious, fresh, and customizable. This place is amazing! Their food and fries are all great but what really makes this place is the staff. Super friendly and they give great suggestions.

Sometimes you go into a place because the 11 sophomores you've taken to model UN for the weekend are against eating at the places you recommend. And you're grateful to them for the rest of your life. Amsterdam Falafel serves two foods: falafel (double fried)...More

Yum! This place is so good. Every topping tastes different from every other topping, and they are very particular with sanitation at the toppings bar. It's the only place I've been in DC where the falafel can compete with NYC's. The only thing that would...More
