I am at this place ALL the time! There are quite a few vegan things such as the tabouli, falafel, foule, etc... The prices are great and I'm here so much that I've actually made friends with one of the guys working there.

I've been here twice, and both times had great food and incredible service. The staff is so friendly! During one visit, the server stopped by our table to give us some mint tea for free. On the other visit, the owner stopped by to chat for a bit and find out whether I enjoyed the food.

On my most recent visit, I tried the "Sampler Plate" which came with 4 perfectly fried falafel, whole wheat pita (whole wheat!), hummus, tabouli salad, tahini sauce, and french fries. It was supposed to come with baba ganouge as well, but I had told the server that I was vegan and didn't eat dairy or eggs, and she informed me that the baba ganouge has some dairy in it. So, instead she gave me extra hummus and tabouli. The falafel are uniquely spiced, with a hint of cardamom--I've never had anything quite like it before. It was a lot of food for one person--this plate would be good to share with someone else. I really liked the tabouli salad--it tasted very fresh, had a great bulgur:parsley ratio, and the tomatoes were actually red (instead of the pale, sickly pink color you often find in tomatoes at other middle eastern restaurants--Holy Land, I'm looking at you). The tabouli was a tad too salty for my tastes, and was incredibly juicy--the juice from the salad ended up making the pita and fries on the plate a little soggy.

The food here is so affordable, too! I'll definitely be back here more often.
