Great place! Tasty vegan food, with a filling portion size. Mediterranean cuisine, and I have to say as an Indian, I found it quite close to Indian style food, in a good way! Super friendly staff. Interesting decor. Did not try the drinks and dessert but they looked interesting. Not too expensive either.

**Updated review** Came here with a group of friends over the weekend and unfortunately giving Chickpea a second try was a bad call. The quality of the food, while some flavours were standouts, was overall, quite disappointing! The Cauliflower of Life was literally a half-dome of boiled cauliflower with toppings. It was exceptionally bland and unpalatable. The smoked eggplant was quite good flavour-wise, but the accompanying chickpea fries were undercooked - some were cold and gelatinous when bitten into. Ordered a couple of hot beverages - both turned up slightly above room temperature at best. The falafel was so hard and dry, was like eating dust. Salads usually are well dressed but this time was dry. Overall the food lacked seasoning. SALT! The server was very pleasant and we enjoyed his accommodating service given the party size. But, the food was such a let down. Hot tips for Chickpea 1) simplify your menu. It's plain confusing 2) stick to your strengths like the chickpea fries and do them WELL; reduce the number of items on the menu 3) improve your quality control for beverages and food especially during busy times.

Totally delicious food, but we had to wait for 1.5 hrs. No one told us anything until over an hour when a very nice staff member told us that they were still getting the hang of the new menu and offered to comp our coffees. We are easy-going people, so we understood, but it would have been even better if someone had updated us much sooner, and possibly brought a few fries to our table to fill the gap. The food rating alone would have been 5 stars.

Okay so here's the thing, the food is very good and is healthy for the most part however the restaurant is designed primarily for families. If you are a family with small children oh, this place is perfect for you and deserves 5 stars. If you are without children and prefer peace and quiet, this restaurant may not be for you. The restaurant is designed around children and family at least this was my impression when I first arrived and sat down. The staff are very friendly and positive

It was great. Not only is the food good but so are the staff. We could not get into Meet so went to Chick Pea. We are very happy that we did. My friend is vegetarian and loved it. We both had a platter each and we both had leftovers. Would we go back? Definitely. Maybe we will try the all you can eat and this way we can try everything.
