The falafel is quite good, but the staff don't know what they're talking about when it comes to gluten. I was told the fries were gluten free. They weren't. Also, high risk of cross contamination when using the salad bar. I'd recommend only getting the falafel balls if you go here and nothing else.
The manager was very knowledgeable of what was GF and what was not. He informed me that some of the toppings I should stay away from since they're fried in the same fryer as their pita chips (even though they're labeled GF). But the falafel is fried on its own and 100% gluten free. Got a super yummy salad!
A great food court option. All ingredients are labeled and the falafel is 100% gluten free :-)
Falafel was delicious! Staff was super knowledgeable, extremely nice and very helpful (his name was Clint!). Everything was clearly marked in the toppings area as to what was gluten free! Only wish there was one closer to my house in CT! Was just passing through! Would love to go back!
Delicious! Well educated staff.
Falafel is one of the best I've had. The Union Square location is always very clean and the non-GF toppings are all to one side, limiting cross contamination... though I don't touch the closer dishes. The 7th ave location was a nightmare though. Gluten in all the bins! Still, you can order the specialty toppings for the salad bowl and pay a little extra and never have to hit the "serve yourself" bits.
Gluten free falafel
I walked in and asked what items were gluten free and the staff knew exactly what I was talking about and showed me that the signs for the toppings had GF on them. Some toppings weren't gluten free but the majority of it was and so are the sauces. Delicious!
Very yummy. Falafel was tastee and salads were plentiful. Had fresh juice which was really good. They will make the fries in a special fryer if u tell them u have gluten allergy. Would give 5 stars but walked out spending 20.00 for what I was under the impression was a $ place...other than that...I will definitely be back.
Great gluten free falafels. Salad bar is clearly marked with gluten free tags. Service is exceptionally helpful and friendly. My only concern is cross contamination. I witnessed customer using spoon from gluten item to serve himself from non-gluten container. Not a problem for me, however, celiacs should use caution.
my non-gf wife loves this place, and the falafel itself is gf but BEWARE: the fries are NOT gf.
Everything that is GF is clearly labelled. The food is fresh and delicious!
Their falafels are cooked in separate oil from the breaded items so they are gluten free. The salad bar is well marked but they put items with gluten next to gluten free items so you must be careful of cross contamination.
