Guys never change their gloves from pita to falafel and the cross contamination made me very sick.
This is a no brainer, the absolute best spot for Vegans and folks with Gluten Allergies. Great fresh food, very clean establishment. Falafel’s are also gluten free!
Good falafel. Bread and couscous salad not glutenfree, but rest is. Be wary of cross contamination.
There falafels are totally gluten free. Get the salad and you can put whatever you want from the salad bar then you get 3 falafels. They are fried to order and the fries are very tasty too. The only things fried are the falafels and French fries so there is no cross contamination. I went there twice during the week I was in Paris. I would definitely recommend for a quick on the go meal!
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.
Delicious they just need a gluten free pita and a separate fryer for gluten free fries! Oh consider real maple syrup and make gluten free sweet potato fries...that would totally rock! Love your favorite creator of the official gluten free tour of nyc!
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!
The girl at the counter told me the pita bread was gluten free. Another employee jumped in to tell me it was not. Otherwise the food is great. I just figure if you advertise gluten free, you should know what is and isn't safe.
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!
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.
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.
