The fact that a place called Falafel King also serves sushi is totally weird. And it's jarring enough to make you question whether or not the falafel is actually any good to begin with. (Which it is.) Want to know what's even weirder? The sushi isn't all that bad!

So while the combination of sushi and falafel (yes, I tried both in one setting) is a little bit offputting, the falafel was awesome. Hot, crunchy and hand-rolled, it reminded me of the falafel I had in NY a few months prior. The accompaniment--grape leaves, hummus--were both decent and the pita was fluffy and super hot, like it had just come out of the fryer. Or however they cook those things.

The other think I like about the King, is that it feels like you're in a college town. It's a tiny place that serves good but cheap fare to a crowd that's young and typically decked in sweats or other collegiate lounge gear. What's not to love?

My parents find this place hilarious and want to go every time they visit. Where else can you get falafel and...sushi? Weird but good, service is good too.

Falafel king is a funny little restaurant. It is falafel and sushi. The falafel is great and I prefer it to other places in Atlanta. It is close to Emory's campus.

I love Falafel King! I used to come here all the time while I was in college. They've changed owners a few times, but it's always been great. The mixed sandwich is the best because it has falafel and gryo.

This place is AMAZING. Yes I too was skeptical of the small hut looking building with falafel and sushi signs. But I am a falafel/shweerma feign. I have experienced some of the best Shweerma, falafel and gibna in Cairo and this is truly the best in the States (that i know of yet). Yes, even better than Mediterranean Grill. The two managers are so incrediblely generous. They are willing to make your order just the way you like. You can also call your order in. It is so popular that around the 12pm and 6pm hour the line is out the door. It is inexpensive, good for a student budget. The space inside is very tight, perhaps with all the business that have, they'll be looking to expand soon?!

They also have curry chicken which is really good. I come from good home cooked Middle Eastern and Caribbean meals. So give it a try. You'll love it!!! I'm addicted.

I was apprehensive about the fact that a place called Falafel King was selling sushi, but it is really really good. the fish is fresh and the rolls are so well made. the hand-rolls the sushi guy makes are beautiful.

Kind of invisible in emory village but they have great falafels, shawarmas, and recently added, sushi. the owner is a sushi chef by trade and he prepares great rolls that are always fresh and well-made. best of all it is so cheap that you can get TWO rolls for the price you'd pay for one at a sushi restaurant, with absolutely no loss of quality. try the eel roll! try the curry too.

This place is such a great find! Their falafel is the best I've had in atlanta, and the prices are great! The shawarma is awesome too. They have recently remodeled and added a sushi bar. It is a popular place for Emory students to grab a sandwich, but the service is usually fast and always friendly. If you are looking for some tasty middle eastern food, you need to check this place out!
