There was probably a 30 person line up but the wait was probably only 10 minutes. For six dollars and the amazing taste, I'd say do it. Do keep in mind that you're not at a restaurant and the service you're going to get will be pretty poor, especially with the guy that's taking your order- know exactly what you... More

Staying at a convention hotel, with the high prices, needed a quick, reasonable lunch. Read the website as well as hearing about Halal from son-in-law. Wife and I stood in the long line and when we got to the guy taking the money ($6 each), he said, "I saw you and tried to get your attention (I use a walker)... More

We went here one night around 7:30 because the reviews were so good. There was a long line that went fast, the prices were reasonable, the service was friendly enough. We ordered 2 orders of chicken with rice and I shared them with my two kids 6 and 12. It didn't have a lot of flavor, so I didn't eat... More

Eaten there many times and love it. It is always fresh and good! Great especially if you are sight seeing and don't want to take forever with a restaurant. the line looks long but they are so quick that you have food in no time.

Your plate is the following: Shredded chicken or beef (or both) on a bed of lettuce (too much of it for my liking), some orange (tomato flavored most likely) basmati rice with and some shreds of pitta bread. All smothered in the owners secret white sauce (that tasted very much like ranch dressing). All for $6! Excellent deal to be... More

Yes, there is a huge queue but it moves very quickly. I had the mix over rice which cost $6. The meal was huge! I couldn't eat it all.

During my visit to New York I tried this stall based on trip advisor review. I found it's more physiological effect of queue rather than extraordinary food. Same company's stall 2 streets away was empty (which I noticed on my way back) and almost 15-20 people queuing in heavy rain. Although the wait wasn't that long. In general good food... More

My husband and I make it a point to stop here at least once during each trip to NYC. We've never had to wait in a terribly long line, but it would be worth it no matter what. It's cheap and it's delicious. We'll keep coming back!
