Have loved them in the past but last night the chicken was dry and the falafel came with 6 pieces of bread and only 2 falafels. What did they think I would eat the break with?????

I had the falafel over rice twice. Don't forget to put the yoghurt sauce on it and you'll have an unbelievably delicious meal. Be careful with the hot sauce though, it's very very spicy. What's more: Price is around 7$; the line can be long, especially in the evening. But the halal guys are fast ;)

If you enjoy eating street food when you travel, it's a must. Cheap and very tasteful, a good way to save money for the tours.

Some of the very best food truck food I have ever enjoyed. My only complaint is that they were very generous with the sauce. If you love tons of sauce, this is for you...if not, ask for less before they start squirting away. We went around 11:00 and there was not a soul around. Walked right up and had my... More

Review for April 2007: I know this is a long over due review, just recently fell in the mood to do reviews from places I've visited. I have to say...you MUST try this place! Amazing flavors, awesome value and for me, really something unique for my pallet. It's just a food stand by the Hilton, but every time we came... More

Fast and easy good food. I appreciated being able to order my gyro bowl without rice. The pepper sauce is VERY spicy - be prepared!

Great chicken and Gyro either in pita or on top of rice. There are lineups for a reason. Quick and really tasty food. I would go back again for sure.

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.
