The ONLY food cart

There are a lot of food carts in NY. You'll walk past MANY to get to this one. And you'll ask why. As a person who's never really ate at any other food cart, I really don't have anything else to compare it to. But the line says it all. You will walk by many carts, but there is about... read more

We actually went here on Thanksgiving Day after the Macy's parade. No wait at all and the portions were huge! The price was super reasonable for the amount of food you get and the food was quite delicious! A total steal at only $6 for a pile of chicken over rice with a green salad. Definitely recommend!!

Most food carts in NYC are the same - hot dogs, nuts, pretzels etc. This place is obviously different because there is a line! Simple, really tasty and cheap. Good food and worth it if you are in the area.

Portion is huge, food is halal, cheap, and delicious. And yes, beware the hot chilli sauce - even we as Malaysians thought it was super spicy!

Perfect and delicious fast food with really decent price. Never before have I met anything more tasty than this... one of a kind. Of course this is not sophisticated food in expensive restaurant, but sometimes the simplicity is a key to success. Reccomend!

Lucky for me the queue was not too long... I wait around 5 minutes. Got the mixed chicken & beef with rice. Food tasted good. Beware of the hot chili sauce - it's extremely chili. Portions are big. I'd recommend it, but I definitely wouldn't wait 15 or 30 mins for it like others would.

This food is great. You're a little on your own when it comes to sauce and knowing exactly what to order/what's on the menu. Be prepared to wait in line 15-30 minutes. It's only $6 which is great.
