    Tasteless and Bland

    Not sure why it's called Rainbow, there was no flavor. I ordered a Greek Salad with Chicken and a Turkish Coffee. The Salad had no dressing except "white" and "red" sauce. No seasoning and the coffee tasted like chemicals. Not sure why it's so hard to fin

    Somewhere else over the rainbow...

    I used to love this place, but now it's gone way downhill. The shwarma was too dry to eat, had to throw it away. Nothing good about the sandwich, brown lettuce, rotten tomatoes, yuck. The fried cauliflower was ok, but too greasy and soggy.

    Great falafel, bad price hike

    The falafel sandwich at $3.50 was really hard to beat. This used to be my favorite little cheap place to get a great lunch. Now it's $4.75, and still delicious, but somehow the price increase leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

    For what it is, it's great

    Buried amidst the insanity of Union Sq, this place is literally a hole in the wall. And it tastes as such. It's great, if what you want is (relatively) cheap, typical "Middle Eastern" food that will probably satisfy whatever craving you had.

    subpar schwarma, ok falafel...

    Gave this place a try twice in the last few weeks... the schwarma is just flat out overcook and completely dry. All of the flavors are there, but the chicken is borderline inedible. The falafel was ok, but a little cold. Having had schwarma and falafel fr
