The blend of ground garbanzo beans, garbanzo flour, and spices is what makes falafel batter unique to the Middle East and eaten all over the world. We're pairing these with saffron, soaked currant and pistachio-rice, smoky roasted cauliflower, a classic sauce called Muhammara (puréed roasted red pepper, pomegranate molasses, and walnuts) and a tahini yogurt sauce.

What People Are Saying

3 Stars
The flavors were good, but I felt everything ended up being a bit dry. I ran out of the two sauces fairly quickly and was wishing for more. I didn't feel these were the best falafel I've had so three stars in the end.

Soooo delicious!

Terrible. Very dry, no flavor at all. I did not over heat it. Am really disappointed in this dish.

The sauces were really good, and so was the cauliflower. The falafel was a little dry and the rice was just OK. Not my favorite.

Good flavor but VERY dry...

The cauliflower and rice were super good. But the falafel as dry - to be fair most falafel is. The sides were good but not enough to order the main dish again.
5 Stars
Amazing Dish! Love it! Perfection!
1 Stars
The rice was really hard and tasted like soap. The falafel was also overly dry and bland. This is the first thing I've ordered that I absolutely hated, had to throw it out. Waste of money.

The rice and falafel was a little dry for our taste but flavors were good.

Pretty skimpy portion of four small pieces of cauliflower, but overall great dish. Both sauces were delicious!
3 Stars
They were a little dry might make sense to cover in a bit of water prior to heating.

Dry and awful. Money back please.

Delicious! How about adding pita bread & a little lettuce with tomatoes?
3 Stars
need way more tahini to go with the dry falafel. Muhammara is tasty, the rice not so much.

Horribly dry
4 Stars
One of the better dishes that we have ordered - would have been nice with a little more white sauce but otherwise, pretty good.
5 Stars
This is one of our favorites, ever. The falafel was well-seasoned, rice was great, and cauliflower to die for. Came with tahini and "muhammara" -- sort of like a vegetable hummus that was a really good textural and taste complement.
5 Stars
I loke well seasoned food and this was. The rice was a bit stiff, but still tasty. I went back for another tonight. Guilt free eating!!!!!
