Solid shawerma & HOT sauce

This is a really good place. The sandwiches (shawerma) are not very large but they're good, quick, and the hot sauce is among the hottest I have had.

The falafels are great. But the Baklava is what deserves a special mention. Its where you land up after a night of drinking to grab a quick bite before you head on home

I hate to be the one person who doesn’t rave about this place so I’m still trying to figure out if I caught them on an off day or if I ordered the wrong dish. I ordered a lamb shawarma sandwich and maybe they’re just more famous for their falafel. While they were generous on the meat, I found it... More

loved the vibe and enjoyed every single bite. Falafel sandwich was one of the best I've had... and the hummus and tabbouleh were the perfect sides!

Fast, efficient, and delicious. The line moves along, and the falafel is fresh. Not a lot of space to sit or stand, but the deal can't be beat.

The hummus falafel is really good, but do take care about that hot sauce. Super fast and great prices.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
