Why we love it

Baba Ganoush is a vibrant new arrival on St Nicholas Rd (St Paul's), after making the hop over the M32 from Easton.

Owners Shad and Dael place an emphasis on community - which is clear from the warm welcome they give to every single visitor.

The food is super-fresh Middle-Eastern/Israeli stuff. Probably the most delicious falafals in town, and the baba ganoush is a complete winner - smooth, zingy and fresh (you'll quickly realise why they named the place after it). Not sure what to order? We recommend putting yourselves in the knowing hands of Shad and Dael - and letting them pull together their recommendation of Mezze plates. It never ceases to please.

It's all BYOB - so bring a few drinks (why not pick up some locally produced craft beers from some other Wriggle faves, such as Coffee + Beer over on Cotham Hill, or Beer Necessities down at Wapping Wharf?) and settle down to a spread of excellent value Middle-Eastern grub.

Also - check out the amazing table carved straight from a gnarled tree-trunk. It's been shipped all the way over from Mali especially!


The Falafel - crunchy on the outside, feathery light on the inside
The awesome friendly vibes and colourful, comfy interiors

Love the amazing food and juices here.


Takeaway mezze was AMAZING. Not surprised, Baba Ganoush is always awesome. Nice to have something aside from the (incredible) salad I usually have, the lentil/rice dish was superb and a very generous portion, spicy potatoes were mmmmmmmm, dolmades on point and falafels as per usual the best in Bristol. Loved it all!


The food is fantastic and the staff are so friendly and helpful.


Grass roots freshness!


really good place, great value for money and lovely staff.


Always amazing! My go to falafel place
