I kept coming back

This is a hole in the wall. It's always crowded. It does a few things and does them well. The baba is heaven in a cup. The pita is perfectly warmed. The falafel is spectacular. I was a local for a year and a half and this was a regular haunt for me. Great anytime of the day but amazing... read more

This is a small in and out restaurant, or in another word, a hole in the wall. Super delicious shawarma and falafel. I live in Montreal, and for that reason, I found it wow. However, if you are visiting from the Middle East, you may not find it to your expectations as your standards (for falafel and shawarma) are much... More

By far the best falafel I have ever eaten, always fresh and served fast and reasonable priced, Mamoun's has been here for ever!

Used to be really good but quality has slipped in the last 2-3 years. It might be because the original owner/founder is no longer involved. Prices are 40% higher than before too.

A whole in a wall place that serves the best Falafel in New York City. Very affordable and absolutely delicious.

When I lived in the area I used to come to this place quite often. I recently went there last night after a long hiatus. The quality has not changed at all...although they finally did raise their prices. I would highly recommend their regular falafel or the chicken kabob sandwiches. Be sure to try it with their hot sauce. This... More

Mamoun's has been in this location -- it's original -- for decades. Right around the corner from Washington Square -- the center of New York University's "campus" and the heart of Greenwich Village -- it's been a staple of college students and party people. Don't expect much in terms of "atmosphere" or service -- it's a hole-in-the-wall kind of joint,... More

This falafel sandwich is always fresh and flavorful. There's always a line so you know the food is fresh. The line moves quickly so don't give up. For $3.50 you're given a delicious sandwich and for $.50 more, you can add hummus. There are imitators but this one's the original and the best.

Hordes of people pack this place late at night causing massive lines of drunken people looking to eat! The later it gets the more the line decreases! Enjoy a night out in Greenwich Village and finish the evening or early morning with a shawarma! Actually everything is good, but that's their staple! Enjoy!

Mamoun's has both the atmosphere of a small dive and a highly organized place to get your meal quick. They don't mess around! Small place to eat! Lucky to get a seat! But well worth getting in line for! The falafels and Shawarma are great and the hot sauce is dangerous if you put too much on! The Staff don't... More

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.
