With a Middle Eastern fiancé, it isn't easy to find a restaurant that meets or exceeds the food he grew up eating at home with his parents. Mamoun's is the exception! This hole in the wall restaurant is one of our top spots, and literally THE reason we take the subway to Greenwich Village. Once you try it, you will... More

Excellent falafel at a bargain price. LOVE IT! The portions are generous, the meat is delicious, and service fast. They're used to serving massive lineups in short order, so don't be scared away by a line up.

This falafel joint is the coolest thing you can get, when it comes to late night meals. It's a really small place, maintained by the same family since decades. Locals love it: musicians, people that work in small shop around those blocks in the Village, comedy artists and anonymous people from every where. Last time I got there, I saw... More

Place with great reputation and luckily we weren't disappointed! There are always people in so don't let the queue make u turn your back on this place...the service is fast, the Falafel tasty, fresh, with enough white sauce and big enough for perfect for a late night snack! And its cheap! $3.50 is a bargain! We will be back!

We eat falafel very often...so we know what's falafel should taste. This one is so far the best my family ever had...the place is small, two small tables, barely seating four...but who cares, you just get your sandwich and eat it out... Chicken or beef shawarma are great options as well, depends on your taste...I like to add extra sesame... More

My wife got the Shawarma plate and I got the Falafel plate and both were excellent. This is a take-away place and we were on our way to hear some music so it worked out great. The line is long but it moves quickly. Not expensive and worth a visit.

The first thing that struck me was a LINE to get falafel - they were busy and food was being cranked out on assembly line We ordered falafel, shawarma and kefta kebab rolls and they were full of flavour and sauce With sauce dripping down our fingers, full but not satiated we ordered another shawarma and dug in with the...

Ever since I was taken to have a Falafel at Mamouns, I have to return whenever I find myself in NYC! They are the best falafel ever! It is a small place with no seating area but definitely worth the experience! If the weather is good, grab one to go and have it in Washington Square park and enjoy the... More

I (literally) stumbled across this place after getting hammered with my fiancé at a nearby jazz bar at roughly 3:30am. The place was empty, all I noticed was the cheap prices on the menu so I bought a felafel wrap. Expecting the trashy(but tasty) Middle Eastern style kebab wraps that are so common in my hometown of Melbourne, I nearly... More
