On our last visit we walked past a couple of times as it was on the corner by our Hotel. We couldn't believe how long the queue was each time but never ate from here.

Whenever I visit New York City I always stop by here at least once. It just has a unique taste that I cannot find back at home. Just make sure you don't go too crazy with the hot sauce.

Always need to get a mix chicken and lamb over rice with lettuce when I'm in NYC. Good stop if you want a late night snack! Long lines during the day time and early evenings.

We only found out about this place because we saw the queues of people lining up to get the chicken and rice. My partner and I decided we were going to try it and it was amazing! Who would of thought something so simple could be so delicious! We now know why everyone comes here. Would definitely recommend on a... More

Excited to join the queue for this famous food cart - we got the best seller (half lamb / half chicken with rice, salad and white sauce) to share. For $7 this is the cheapest meal we have had in NYC and probably ever will have! I bravely ordered hot sauce on the side and one lick of it was... More

Everyone should try eating on the street and this is the place to go. There will be long lines in the evenings so try it earlier for lunch. Fun experience and good food.

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... 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!!
