Loved it!

Stumbled upon this place whilst looking for somewhere for lunch. It was absolutely lovely! Had the falafel which was delicious and a huge portion! Perfect for everyone, whether you're vegetarian or not. Our waiter was also really friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Takeout: Used to love it. The hummus was great and the falafel were good. Just now threw $40 worth of food into the garbage. The falafel were cold and tasted a bit like cardboard. The hummus almost tasted the way food tastes, just before it turnes. Even the pita was rubbery and tasted as if it has been in the... More

Ate here for lunch while in the Upper West Side, over on Amsterdam St. and what a find! Service was great food was delicious and prices were right. Only locals, we were the only "tourists" in the place. Really authentic hummus and other Middle Eastern servings.

Have eaten here twice and enjoyed the meal both times. The restaurant is small and comfortable. Service is efficient and friendly. Recommend the cauliflower.

Loved this place! Not sure where to start. We had the fresh lemonade, side of falafel, hummus and pita, falafel sandwich, and the veggie platter with the rice, tzatziki, lentil patties. It was all so good. Never expected such good food with so much flavour from a small, hole in the wall restaurant.

This was a great lunch place. Best falafel I have ever had! The veggie patties and gyros were also excellent!

My friend and I went here after a long travel day, and we were so glad we did. We ordered the hummus platter and each got three of the small plates. Between the two of us we had 4 types of hummus, falafel, artichokes, beet salad, stuff grape leaves, lentils and rice, and beet salad. Everything was delicious and I'm... More

Real middle eastern hummus and pita - like nowhere in NYC! Served in a bowl with all the frills, as intended.

Always a great meal...we often will drive there, pack up dinners to bring home to eat, and visit Levain for cookies to have later on for dessert.

A few steps down into this "hole in the wall" fabulous place. Great service. Nice atmosphere. And wonderful food. Besides the fact that I don't like or eat hummus -- you must go if you are in the area. My wife loved it so much she want back a second time in the 3 days in the city. Great soups... More

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
