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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I had a falafel pita, it was the worst of my life and I paid 6 € for that trash 🤮 I love Falafel and I‘ve eaten many in my life all over the world. I see many good reviews from the past, maybe there...were other owners in the past 🤷🏻‍♂️Now two rude persons are working inside, the quality is trash and the price is very high for such a trash. I will definetely never go back there and I‘d recommend everybody to stay away from Falafel 1818, it’s definetly not worth a visit.More

I had a falafel for dinner and it was sadly the worst falafel I have ever eaten. I did not know you could fale in making a decent falafel but apparently you can. The falafel tasted burnt and very unfresh.

I went here when working in Frankfurt and searching tripadvisor for somewhere I could get a halloumi kebab (we don’t really get them in takeaways in the UK). This came up had good reviews so I walked over, it was super busy the first time...I went which made me want to go, so I did and they got through the queue really quick. Always a good sign when you visit a busy restaurant! The veggie freestyle platter was delicious, great portion really good salads and falafel and a really hot chewy pita to go with it. So good that two days later I went back for dinner and enjoyed a halloumi kebab and fries which were also delicious and all for 11€ with a drink! Next time I am in Frankfurt I will be going back here, it’s cheap, convenient for the train station, has a nice feel to it and the food is really good.More

I tried falafel which was really delicious and also the portions are really big. It deserves what you paid. We went on friday evening and it was sooo crowded so it’s almost impossible to sit and also it looks more like a club rather than...restaurant with very loud music. If you’re looking for budget friendly option, definitely recommended!More

The hummus and falafel are the best in Frankfurt. Try hummus with the deliciously marinated chicken, hardboiled eggs and pickled cucumbers! It is definitly my meditarrenean oasis in FFM! The service couldn't be better! Can't wait for my next Lemonana!

Not as amazing as Aroma but still a decent portion of good, freshly made stuff. Very friendly staff and a bonus of couple of seata in& outside. They offer quite a large variety of options, all delicious. Good alternative in Bahnhofsviertel neighbourhood!

Great falafel. I would order as a plate next time because the pita was hard to eat. Hummus plate with chili con carne looked great.

ate there twice - about the best Lebanese food we've had in a long time. Delicious vegetable plate. Location is right by Banhof. Limited seating. Takeout possible. Loved it!

...after the great falafel platter I had in Cologne, I hoped for a similar experience in Frankfurt...and was really disappointed: the falafel platter had everything you would expect...and was more than generous in size. However, the falafel were so so so dry I could barely...eat them. And the chili con carne was just dripping oily. Definitely not worth a repeat...More

Must be 1st time in my life I must have not been served food anywhere because I did not speak the language.. Ordered 4 vegetarian falafels..rude guy behind the counter does not even acknowledge the order. Repeat the order replies back.. When I politely tell...him I did not understand what hes trying to say replies back extremely rudely that he does not speak English.. Such kinda unpleasant behaviour have never seen anywhere and I travel around a lot. Will certainly be never going back to this place how ever good they may be. Having worked in the service industry know how important customers are. Hope these guys learn how to treat their customers properly.More

The vegan falafel for €4.90 is large and very delicious. I came in starving and feel nicely satiated! Perfect amount of spice for me too. Staff spoke English enough
