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

At Umi we want to share with you our passion for the freshest and most authentic Falafel in Dublin. All our salads, pickles and sauces are freshly prepared throughout the day to ensure only the best food is served to our customers.

At Umi Falafel Dame Street, customers enjoy our 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 our sit down restaurant, we also have a take-out service.

What Are Falafels?

Falafels are wholesome, 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.
