Maybe the menu has changed since the previous reviews, but I want to warn people that the falafel is no longer gluten free. The waiter told me it was breaded with gluten containing crumbs and also fried in a shared fryer. When I asked what on the menu was safe (nothing is labeled and there is no separate GF menu) he just said plain salad.
The mixed platter and falafel were delicious! We also ordered a side of carrots and cucumbers for dipping in the sauces. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I feel they should substitute either falafel or veggies for the regular bread that comes with the mixed platter, but they don't. It gets old when GF people have to pay extra for every substitution...and it was $11 more for GF! Other restaurants are stepping it up, so something to keep in mind.
Great place, with many, delicious GF options. Waitstaff were polite, relaxed, and seemed knowledgable about celiac. Also, it was no problem to substitute a GF item for the non-GF tabouli on the mixed platter. Would highly recommend! Also, to address the previous review about the falafel- it does have flour, but it's chickpea flour, so it IS gluten free (and delicious).
WARNING: the falafel is NOT GF! I came here for that and it has flour it it. Very knowledgable staff but disappointed that there aren't more different GF options than meat and salad. I don't eat nightshades either so it's hard to eat this kind of food which makes it extra disappointing:-(
I had a wonderful experience dining here. I am celiac and vegan so I always worry about eating out but the staff here were very knowledgable and helpful with the menu and there were so many food options! The falafel is made with chickpea flour and pan-fried which was such a treat for me but that was only the tip of the iceberg. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone with gluten free restrictions.
Delicious grilled meats and hummus near The Metropolitan Museum!
