Fodor's Review

Look no further than the fantastic falafel stands on the pedestrian Rue de Rosiers for some of the cheapest and tastiest meals in Paris. L'As (the Ace) is widely considered the best of the bunch, which accounts for the lunchtime line that extends down the street. A falafel sandwich costs €5 to go, €7.50 in the dining room, and comes heaped with grilled eggplant, cabbage, hummus, tahini, and hot sauce. The shawarma (grilled, skewered meat) sandwich, made with chicken or lamb, is also one of the finest in town. Though takeout is popular, it can be more fun (and not as messy) to eat off a plastic plate in one of the two frenzied dining rooms. Fresh lemonade is the falafel's best match.

L'As du Fallafel Review

It is what it is - a fallafel stand..... but it just may be the best in Paris if not all of Europe. As stated - not to be missed for a yummy not so ordinary lunch in Paris! I'll be back again and again. So my "5s" are not cnsistant in that this is not gourmet food nor a high end dining experiance, but it as I said the best fallafel stand to be found!

I dream about this falafel

3rd time to Paris and 3rd time getting this falafel. Almost too much for one person but I wouldn't share it because it's too good to share:-) I wouldn't dream of going to paris without getting one of these sandwiches!

Unbelievably good.

Huge falafels, low prices, and a ginormous burst of goodness with every bite. Do not wear a white shirt to this joint (ha ha, speaking from experience. It was Nuit Blanche, OK? I was being thematic). I gave it a 5 for atmosphere because this is a food made for wandering the Marais, not sitting in the dinky little dining room (plus it's cheaper to take away). Get the lemonade too and you're ready to go.
