Best lamb schwarma

Amazing place, nothing to do with tourists traps...this is where locals eat. Always fresh, no matter how long the line is, you will get your food quickly. Take your schwarma or (and) falafel and enjoy your meal in Washington Square Park, which is 1 block away from there.

Three of us had the shawarma and this place came highly recommended by a local and by tripadvisor. But we were disappointed with the quality of the meat. Lots of fat. Had to spit a lot out, not enjoyable. Have to say I've had better shwarma in several places in Toronto.

I came here as part of tour and it was $1 for three falafel's. A good price and it was made on the spot so it was fresh and hot. It also came with a selection of sauces. When I come back to New York I will happily go there again. Service is quick as well. A small place so... More

I grew up across the street from this wonderful lil gem. When it 1st opened I thought it was so silly to have such a tiny little place . I don't remember my 1st time there but I so miss it when I am gone too long. If you are in the area stop by and grab a quick bite.... More

Usually hit Mamoun after a night out in the village. Falafel is the best in the city. Love adding extra hot sauce but beware it is very spicy.

We went to Mamoun while on a Greenwich Village food tour and thoroughly enjoyed the falafel. It's reasonably priced and very tasty.

Mamoun's is a must stop for us when we are in NYC. My husband is from Egypt and to him this is the best middle eastern food outside of Cairo. We usually just get the falafel but this time we got a kofta, chicken kabobs, hummus, and shawarma. I usually do not like lamb, but the shawarma was some of... More

I have to start off by saying they are not the best falafel I've had, but I'm from the middle east and I've had many great versions. That being said this is my favorite falafel place in Manhattan. They are always freshly made and delicious and you can't beat the prices and there's something warm about the place and and... More

The falafel was ok, not the best I've ever had. Prices were good for what you get. Seems to be a bit overrated.

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.
