Umi is the Arabic word for mother which explains why their falafel are handmade with care.

At Umi they want to share with you their passion for the freshest and most authentic falafel in Dublin. Their bread is freshly baked and their salads, pickles and sauces are made to a family recipe.

At Umi Falafel Dame Street, you can enjoy their falafels and salads in a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant has a modern seating area which can seat up to 50 falafel enthusiasts.

In addition to their sit down restaurant, they also have a take-out service.

What are Falafels?
Falafels are wholesome, round, golden-brown croquettes that are slightly crunchy on the outside and soft and moist from the inside. We take great pride in preparing our Falafel which are prepared fresh daily.

We first soak the fresh chickpeas in water for 24 Hours; we then combine up to 15 different ingredients such as onions, garlic, parsley, coriander and our special Umi spices such as cumin, crushed chillies, cloves, cinnamon and more. The recipe is 100% vegetarian and high in protein.

Decent middle eastern food unfortunately marred by terrible service. A simple portion of falafel took over 45 minutes. It's targeting a fast food audience in a similar setting, so such a long wait just isn't acceptable. The salads are fresh and falafel tasty, but I won't be back.

Well I travelled along with my Vegetarian meetup group. We had been here in the past. I enjoyed my time. Food was exquisite. heheehe. The waiter knew his stuff and his dishes dietary. I was most impressed. He knew what was vegan and wasn't. Although the majority of the dishes on offer is Vegan, some are vegetarian. So I just wanted to make sure. Considering the place was bouncing, he was speculator. Ever since Delhi O' Delhi(Review here), closed down(RIP), I have been naming Umi Falafel as my FAV vegan/vegetarian restaurant. Umi is Arabic for "Mother". Following is what I had The Lebanese Falafel Batata Hara/Wedges Lentil Soup Basbousa The Lentil Soup, mmmmmmmm was heaven. Totally enjoyed it. Creamey(VEGAN) creamey soup. I had asked the waiter what was the soup of the day and he reploied Brocoli Soup of which was I wasn't the best of. SO I chose a nicer soup of which I was glad. hahahah The Lebanese Falafel was filled in a wrap style or as they call it a Falafel. Filled with styuffiny type, Tomato, Cucumber, pickles, parsely and tahini sauce. It was scrumptious. IT would be suitable as a lunch. It was heaven. mmmmm. I asked for a side order of Wedges or in Arabic BAtata Hara. They were a bit dry, spicyness was "Just Right". Not too hot, and not too bland(opposite of spicy), it was JUST RIGHT. I asked for a dessert menu. I quickly looked and chose Basbousa

One of the best places to get a good falafel or food in general. On sunny days you should order falafel and fresh juice to go and head to Dubhlinn Garden just behind, for an improvised picnic :)

Good menu with lots of choices to mix and match and great deals (falafel sandwich, wedges and a drink for €7.50, Falafel plate, 4 falafel, 3 dips, 2 bread, salad of your choice and a drink €7.50). I had the Fattoush salad which was so fresh and so tasty. The Palestinian falafel sandwich was delicious, bursting with flavour and very filling. The falafel were tasty,but a little on the crunchy side. The wedges (Batata Hara) were ok, nothing special and couldn't taste any spicing. Only gripe would be that serving on the wooden boards makes it hard to assemble and cut food. Will return.

Definitely worth a visit for the tasty falafels. Ask about the desert options though as not too sweet. Stopped off before meeting a friend and it was a great place to get some good food and just hang out for a short bit.

Best Falafel in Dublin. Great friendly staff. Clean. Good Value. You can ask questions and chop and change a little. Proper run business. Well Done. Have eaten here many times. So handy before the cinema or when you are hungry but don't want a lot to eat. Healthy food to top it all off.

I absolutely love Umi! I have been coming here at least once a week for the past few months and the food is always excellent plus the staff are very friendly and the value really cannot be beaten. My favourite is the amazingly flavourful Palestinian falafel with the super fresh tabbouleh. By far the best falafel I have ever eaten in Dublin.

I cannot wait to go back here. As a veggie this is what I have been waiting for all my life! A huge menu with great deals (falafel sandwich, wedges and a drink for €7.50). Salds are fresh and so tasty and juices are brilliant. The decor is funky but relaxing and the logo is fab. Staff are so fast and helpful. Full house of people who seemed to be really appreciating the fare. Cannot wait to go back

I love this place! We stopped here by chance and immediately fell for this place: amazing, fresh, delicious food, and drink (I had a freshly made carrot juice that was simply amazing!) served in a timely manner by a very nice staff. Gorgeous falafel and hummus, and a superb tabouleh! I will definitely go over and over again.
