I just had the traditional falafel on whole wheat. It was actually pretty crisp and the toppings, like the chopped cabbage/cubed salad, were delish, and leaned towards the authentic falafel topping. However, I wish they had the pickled peppers, olives and hot sauce I cannot get enough from when I go to my Israeli joints. They were a little heavy handed with the Hummus, which, towards the end, made me feel like I was eating a brick and mortar. This is the first time I've paid more than $5 for a falafel, but given the paucity of falafel/middle eastern places in the area and rents these guys must have to pay, I understand the cost and am willing to pay when I have the jonesing.

I have eaten falafel all over the world and I must say, this is one of the best I have ever had. I got the "Crisp Authentic" sandwich and it was absolutely delicious. The chef is also super nice and very helpful with any questions you have about the food. Can't wait to go back!

Best falafel I have had in nyc! The mini is a good enough size for me which is about $5. I loved how light it was to eat on my stomach, clearly not a greasy food. Staff is very friendly too. It is a very small place so crowding will occur but I only discovered this place this week and have already went 3 times! yum

Stellar falafel, quality ingredients. Glad to see they lowered most of their prices. Wish they had a falafel with all the standard toppings like pickled turnips, pickles, hot peppers, etc. Agree with comment below about the hummus - it's very rich but has little flavor. Sometimes the pita is a little dry and it breaks apart after just a few bites and I have a total mess on my hands.

"the crisp" falafel was soggy, not true to it's name. too much hummus in the falafel, and the falafel itself didn't hold up to the other ingredients in taste or texture. the music in the place, well boo.

just got the crisp falafal and it was excellent. it was over 7 bucks with tax, quite expensive for a meatless lunch. i am guessing b/c they use organic ingredients, and all eco friendly stuff - that tacks on to the price. nutrition info IS on the website - go toward the bottom. Some of them are crazy fattening - not quite sure how they claim to be healthy, when some of their choices have 58 grams of fat. worth a try, and very creative packaging (however, how "eco-friendly" is putting a lunch in a box? this place should be called contradiction instead :)

Delicious falafel! I get the "Crisp" falafel and the cubed salad in it is incredibly fresh and abundant! The falafel is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and not greasy at all. Although (as other reviewers have noted) it is pricey, the buyer gets what he pays for and this food is well worth the extra couple of bucks.
