First time to New York and had to have something from a food vendor. We stopped buy while cruising the streets. We had the lamb Gyros which were excellent.

Got out the MOMA and was just walking back to my hotel, then it was this massive queue. So I decided to try it. One of the best meal I had in NY and certainly the cheapest as well. And that red sauce which I thought was ketchup was SERIOUSLY SPICY.

I don't understand the 5 star reviews of these guys. Had to try them with so many glowing reviews, and I just found everything way too bland. I got the combo plate, and everything tasted the same. I love shawarma, this was a massive disappointment.

While walking through Midtown Manhattan we came across the Halal Guys. I had actually saved them as a place that I would want to try, but was a little leery after seeing a bunch of different Halal street vendors that were not the Halal Guys. We went there around 3:30 in the afternoon so it was not busy and thought... More

It's cheap, it's quick, it's served hot, it's full of flavours, it can be flexed to suit you ( happily obliged when we asked for just the falafel from the falafel sandwiches) and ever so pleased to serve a customer for the 5 to 10 $ they leave you a much happier person than some of the exotic celebrity chef...

Just love these food stands near the Hilton at Midtown. I remember when they only had 1 or 2 carts and now they have 4 carts and the lines are still super long. They have some fantastic gyros and platters. Love all of them, and if you like it spicy, get some extra of that spicy sauce because it's fantastic!... More

If you are on a restricted diet (Halal) or not, this will definitely fill you up deliciously. I recommend you ask for extra sauce or just opt for putting it on yourself.

Was excited to try this place due to the reviews. Cheap, yes, you can eat one bowl for two people. But meat is just ok quality; shredded chicken is kind of dodgy. Sauce is good; the red one is seriously spicy. They have carts on each side of 6th. Have your money ready or the guy will give you a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
