Here are some of the reviews and testimonials
so grateful there is FINALLY a true
and authentic place in downtown
Newark that sells great falafel
sandwiches and much more. The Green
Chicpea is the place if you want
fresh, tasty Mediterranean food!
This is my go-to spot when I'm
attending classes at Rutgers and
I'm in the mood for a falafel
sandwich! I highly recommend this
place. You won't be disappointed!
The food here is AMAZING!
Fantastic garlic mayo and
shawarma and wraps. Ended up
going here twice in two days
when I was staying in
Newark. The atmosphere is
great, too, but... wow. The
food. Definitely try this
out if you're in the area.
The food is amazing! Healthy,
reasonable prices, and delicious.
Best falafel I ate outside Israel.
Also great soups.
I took one bite out
of this falafel and it put every
other store that offers falafel I've
been to to shame! I barely took time
to breathe as I ate. I literally had
to pause at one point to assess just
how delicious and fresh everything
tasted....and its super healthy!
Some fresh baked bread accompanied
it but I only took a bite but even
the bread puts you in a trance. I
absolutely recommend Green Chicpea
but just make sure you're not too
hungry as they do take sometime to
deliver (35+ minutes). They now
If you are looking for good
vegetarian and healthy options near
area, then the Green Chicpea should
be your next option.
This place is family owned business
serving very good falafel and
vegetarian food as well as some
flesh and kosher options.
The menu is a little confusing at
first but basically you select the
type of meal you want and then your
sides and flesh or protein.

The concept is pretty easy, it's
kinda like Chipotle, but
Mediterranean food and its certified
kosher. You pick a protein (which is
different preparations of chicken or
falaffel), and then you pick sides.
Chicken shwarma is pretty good
especially with harissa sauce, the
chicken was still moist and was full
I have to say, when my boyfriend
told me we'd eat lunch near Rutgers,
I was picturing sandwiches with
french fries stuffed in them, but
instead got a wonderful Middle
The setup is similar to Chipotle, in
that you pick chicken or falafel and
then either choose a platter, pita,
or laffa (basically a burrito), and
then you pick your fixin's. I went
with the chicken shwarma, red
cabbage salad, and the babaghanoush,
along with a healthy smear of hummus
inside the pita, and asked for spicy
sauce to top it off. It was
delicious, and the chicken was moist
but still had those wonderful
crunchy bits that shwarma should
have. My boyfriend won in the
ordering though (how does he always
do that??) and got the falafel pita
with roasted eggplant salad and
tabbouleh. SO GOOD. So tangy,
flavorful, and full of veggies, yum!
Believe me, I will be back to get
some of that falafel action.
Amazing, authentic Middle Eastern
food with friendly service! Not
cheap, but you get what you pay
for-- quality ingredients prepared
with care. So happy to have this
place around the corner from Rutgers!
Love this place so
much. Clean and food is always good.
Have referred many people. One tiny
glitch for me and a couple of others
is that the falafel is a bit too
salty. This will not stop us from
coming or even eating it here and
there, but once that is adjusted I
will add my last star.
We have the perfect combination of nutritious and
delicious. But donít take our word for it.
Once youíve tasted the food at The Green Chicpea, youíll
get it. Youíll
want to come back for more!
