    Top notch fast food vegetarian eatery. Very filling. Good variety.

  • Gina L.

    The vegetarian shwarma is a well spiced meat substitute that even carnivores will enjoy- load up extra on the toppings and you've got yourself two meals.

    The lemonade and the spicy falafels

    Hungry, running late, and facing a long subway ride? Grab a falafel salad and a boxy paper to-go bag. Easy to eat standing up on the platform+train without bothering other passengers or making a mess!

    Got a junior maoz falafel, piled on thank you! Veggies with rice pudding, perfect.

    Toppings Bar: Not all of the salads and sauces are vegan, but plenty of them are: carrots, cabbage, broccoli, pickles, and tabouleh. That's plenty you can stuff in a pita, with or without falafel.

    Serious Eats · April 23, 2013
  • Madam W.

    For under $6 get a falafel sandwich (5 pieces) and as much salad as you can pile in. Garlic sauce was both sweet and spicy - perfect! Small sandwich comes with 3 pieces and less room for salad.

    Dutch vegetarian chain with a vibrant toppings bar for customizing your pita sandwiches.

    Salad box is so delicious. And the people who work here are always so nice, even during lunch rush.

    The falafel sandwich is a meal in itself! Only get more if you're hungry.

  • David S.

    1. Not the best falafel in NYC. 2. The salad bowls have seriously shrunk since this place opened (the prices haven't). 3. The food is good.

    For some of the best falafel outside of Israel, head to this Dutch chain. The co-star to the falafel is the toppings bar, with great options like pickled baby eggplant.

    I never go to Union Sq without stopping here .... The food is DELISH

    Their garlic sauce is like crack. Please make sure you have gum on hand for afterwards. Your friends will thank you!

    Kate · November 7, 2011
  • Sydney B.

    Add a squirt of tahini sauce first to add sauce, then fill her up w/ toppings. I also like the falafel shakshuka on whole wheat--nice and saucy

    This is the 2nd time I've gotten a big hair in my food at this location. Watch out.

    Chris Davis · July 28, 2011
  • Kassia G.

    The food is good but a bit of a rip-off. Fries aren't healthy any way you slice it.

    Kassia Graham · July 18, 2011
  • Chris D.

    Get the salad box w/ yogurt sauce! Don't go for the apple juice, with all the pulp it's like drinking an apple through a straw.

    Chris Davis · July 9, 2011

    Get here before noon to avoid salad bar chaos!
