LOVE the old Garbanzo's and the new. – I absolutely love this restaurant! I am sad their hours are limited, but their food is incredible! the chicken skewers, hummus, and various salads are soooo awesome. I keep going back. Great place!
Horrible service and food – Not all NW restaurants are great. This place has horrible service and food. I walked in and didnt get a greeting, no one came to my table to check on me, and no thank you. I had to go to the counter to pay while they were bringing the bill to everyone elses table. I ordered extra hummous and the girl just handed me the last piece still in the store bought plastic bag. Didnt grill or heat up the pita at all. I will never be back. The hummous is also very greasy.
I miss the old Garbonzo's... – The old Garbonzo's was open almost all the time and had such a delicious and cheap menu, friendly staff, and a cozy atmosphere. The new Garbonzo's closes early on Friday and is closed all day Saturday, and has an impersonal atmosphere, new (but not improved) recipes, higher prices, and disappointing service. This used to be my favorite restaurant. :(
Fantastic Falafel – Best falafel in town. Plus, they sell this falefel mix, in case you want to cook it up at home
Good food – This place serves good food, with lots of flavor. No frills but good food! The service is fast too.
Best falafel in town. – Excellent falafel. The hummous is mighty fine, too. The staff are all amazingly nice and friendly, and they are consistently zippy with the food.
Also, they are open uncommonly late for Portland, which fits into my 12:30am falafel binge pattern nicely.
healthy options – i was nervous about the menu concept but was shocked at the simplicity and refreshing options: chicken with salads is a huge amount of food for so cheap. so much for bento: i'm convereted !!!
