  • I second ptpoppy's review. I had a similar experience - I had a restaurant dot com coupon as well, and the kid at the order counter was rude, blunt and told us that they don't accept restaurant dot com coupons, in a tone used for beggars asking for money.

    To top it off, the tables were filthy and when we asked for steel cutlery that was missing from our table, the kid told us he doesn't have any and that he'll have to 'wash the dishes'.

    The food I must say was delicious but the portion size was ridiculously small for the price charged. I have been visiting Falafel King on an average once a month for the last year and I've seen the quality consistently deteriorate. Too bad they're losing business worth thirty dollars per month from me now onward.

  • Order: Shawarma, Kofta Kabob, Hummus appetizer

  • This would be a very mediocre place if it were in new york or chicago. Since it is in the twin cities - where there is a definite lack of international/ethnic cuisine - I give them a higher score than I would elsewhere. It is lovely to have somewhere to get falafel, souvlaki, gyros etc. This is more like a fast food joint than a restaurant although there is table seating available. I would prefer some redecorating so that one could get take-out but also go there for a nice evening dining out experience.

  • Order: gyro

  • We had a Restaurant.com coupon. We had to spend $20 to get $10 off. We went for a very early lunch. It was a warm summer day and the air conditioner was not working. We ordered lamb stank and gyros to eat in...with one glass of water and one soda. There was a kid taking the orders and he did not seem to want to be there. We took a seat to wait. He kept looking at us and asking if something was wrong.

    An adult prepared the order to go. At that point we were hot and decided to take the take-out order and go to Lake Calhoun and have lunch instead of eating in. There was no soda. The kid said we did not pay for it....and we had not been charged for it, but he did not "hear" the order.

    The food was okay, but there is much better Middle Eastern food at Holyland and Marina's where you feel like a welcome guest. We will not be back to Falafel King! We had to park two blocks away.

  • Order: Lamb Shank, Gyros
