Of all the places in the world to serve a disappointing bagel...bought one in Penn Station in NYC and the thing was nothing more than a roll with a hole poked in it. Also ordered a smoothie (Strawberry banana) because options are always good, and I can say with no question that it paled in comparison to both smoothie chains- they absolutely skimp on the fruit and drown the ice in yogurt. The result was a nearly undrinkable cup of yogurt that was slightly pink from the presence of a couple chunks of strawberry. In a market that is so saturated, a smoothie place that makes poor smoothies, and a breakfast place with poor bagels really has no place in NY.

The most disappointing falafel I've ever had. Other baked falafel plaaces are way better. They barely put any toppings on it so it was mostly pita.

I have a child w/ SEVERE food allergies. Allergic to ALL DAIRY, PEANUTS and PINEAPPLE. We stopped in to check out what was available. They couldn't even tell me if it was completely dairy free?? They didn't know if butter was used and they were very unpatient. It would be nice to know if any of their food is safe??

Chickpea is the best place in nyc to grab a quick meal. The salads are amazing, instead of traditional dressing they have a few different type of hummus's. Although it seems like a tough task once you reach the counter, the workers will hold your hand throughout the your order. I wish chickpea would pop up in other neighborhoods of NYC.

My wife and I struggle to find good delivery in Chelsea and are constantly disappointed whenever we go outside of our "go-to" restaurant list to give a new place a chance. Tonight, gratefully, that changed. The food did take a while to arrive, but we'll chalk that up to the snowstorm and severe weather from last night. The pitas are thick and delicious, the red hummous amazing and the salads full. The lentil soup was likely the star of the show even in light of all this stiff competition. We'll order in from here again for sure.

I used to go to Chickpea when it opened in the east village (5?) years ago. It was really good - friendly service, flavorful & fresh food, great prices,etc. After it closed I wanst there much at all but happened to try this location today and what a massive disappointment. The falafel was not good at all - small dried out flavorless balls. The people behind the counter were rude, in a rush and trying to put toppings on my salad that I didnt want and then wouldnt let me add more even though I offered to pay. Worst was the "dressing" which was watery and sort of sour. I am no longer surprised there are no other locations in the city and dont expect this one to last too long.
