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
Settling down to a huge, healthy and delicious spread of Mezze.

Yummy yummy as usual. Price gone up recently but I don’t blame them. It’s still a bargain! Thanks guys:-)


Brilliant deal at a great spot :)


Absolute bargain from true falafel masters!!


MY FAVOURITE FOOD SPOT EVER. I have never tasted falafel so light, so soft, so fluffy. They are like little balls of heaven. I love this place so much; it's community ethos, Rudy the dog who barks at passers by but loves attention and basking in the sun. The pickles, chillis, hummus, tahini, generous portion of halloumi. The owners really seem to love what they do and it absolutely shows. The lady is so open and friendly and it truly is service with a smile. Absolute dream team. Thank you team Baba, will be back next week!


Really wiggly good value


Amazing food and amazing people! The best falafel in town!!
