Maoz is a falafel café on 43 Old Compton Street in the middle of Soho about a ten minutes walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station. I have only been there once, but I liked Maoz a lot so I can recommend the place to everyone visiting London. It’s a great place for people who want a quick and tasty meal and still have money left for other things. Maoz is popular among people working in the nearby area and price-conscious vegetarians and tourists. I don’t usually eat at fast food places, but I liked Maoz. The restaurant is quite nice, clean and the staff does what they can to give you good service. Sitting outside is probably better, especially if it’s nice weather. Old Compton Street is normally pretty busy and it’s a good spot to hang out over a lunch.
The falafels at Maoz are very tasty and come in warm Pita bread together with your own choice of vegetables. The falafels start at £2.50, but I would say the £3.50 falafel type with hummus is more satisfying. I ordered one of those and it was definitely one of the best falafels I've eaten. I haven’t eaten that many, but Maoz surely know their stuff. The staff filled the Pita bread with falafel, hummus and lettuce and I chose whether I wanted pickled cucumber, tomato, corn, onion, couscous, coleslaw, carrot or any dressing to top with. A great concept.
Maoz is open Monday to Thursday 11am-1am, Friday to Saturday 11am-2am and Sunday 11am-midnight. [more ]
