East Side Pockets has the most amazing falafel pockets i've ever had. Eat here or regret it forever. :)

Excellent middle eastern food. Chicken Ceasar wrap is my favorite but you can't go wrong here. Gyros are great and the salads are HUGE and delicious. Great people too.

We recently had a party at East Side Pocket. It was my 30th birthday and since I am middle eastern, my friends ordered a belly dancer from 'BRUNA Costumes' in Providence. She was excellent. The costume was beautiful and her personality was sparkling.<br /> I know they have great costumes there at BRUNA'S but I didn't expected great entertainment as well.

After hearing about Felafel from the East Side Pocket for 3 months, I decided to finally go along and try it. I knew I liked chickpeas, but was iffy on the idea of felafel. May I tell you I was completely impressed! They had a variety to put on the felafel wraps including tabbouleh, hummus, feta, and tahini. I had mine with hot sauce, tabbouleh, lettuce, tomato and peppers. <br /> From the first bite to last, I was absolutely impressed. It was so flavorful evey bite was delightful. The last bite was just as good as the first. WARNING: This is absolutely filling. I got pita chips (delicious and a huge portion for the price) and I had to force myself to eat any more. <br /> All in all, I would give East SIde Pocket's Felafel pocket a 10 out of 10. Will definitely be retuning again!

east side's falafel is the best i've found in providence. i personally enjoy the speedy service, and they've never been anything but courteous to me. they do still give you free samples, you just have to ask. my friend went there for the first time and got a piece of falafel and some free baklava since she had no idea what any of the food was like there...this is definitely one of the best eating establishments around.

I ate here 3 times a week when I was at Brown. I've had just about everything once and it's all good.
